Steak will soon be back on the menu at a prime cut of LoDo retail space.

Morton’s The Steakhouse Denver is moving from a choice spot facing Union Station on Wykoop Street to the former home of Sullivan’s Steakhouse, which went dark in May 2015 after a 15-year run at 1745 Wazee St.

Morton’s plans to roll up its white tablecloths at 1710 Wynkoop St. on Jan. 21 and unfurl them in time for a Feb. 10 reopening on Wazee Street, a restaurant employee said when reached at the restaurant’s main phone number.

The restaurant, part of Houston-based restaurant group Landry’s, has possessed of the property at least since August, according to a sign posted on the door.

Landry’s owns multiple steak and seafood restaurant concepts with a presence in Denver, among them Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Simms Steakhouse in Golden and the Downtown Aquarium restaurant.

In May, it announced it would close Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks on the 16th Street Mall to swap in another concept, Saltgrass Steak House.

Local management at Morton’s The Steakhouse Denver could not be reached by press time.
