Morton's Steakhouse in Boston's Back Bay May Move into Former Borders Space

A group of high-end steakhouses with two locations in Boston may be moving its Back Bay restaurant, and it is apparently looking at the site of a now-closed bookstore.

According to The Boston Herald, the Chicago-based Morton's Steakhouse chain is considering moving from 699 Boylston Street to another space in the Back Bay, with the former Borders site at 511 Boylston Street being a possibility. The article mentions that the chain wishes to have a space with outdoor seating, which is impossible at its current Boylston Street home, since is below street level. If they were to take the Borders space, Morton's would probably go into the first-floor corner section of the building as well as most of the second level, according to the Herald.

Morton's has been at its current spot on Boylston Street for nearly a quarter century. Its other Boston location, which is in the Seaport District, first opened in 2008.
