Last month, Morty’s Restaurant in San Carlos introduced a new menu, new pricing and a new chef.
When Morty’s owner Michael Shifrin opened the doors at 1037 Laurel Street in April, 2012, he realized his dream of being a restaurateur. The native of South Africa and long-time San Carlos resident wanted to bring family friendly, quality food to the neighborhood. But the challenge of being at the more southern end of Laurel Street along with a chef that wanted to emulate more upscale
“We were not delivering my original vision, which was family friendly, comfort food in a great atmosphere at a reasonable cost,” says Shifrin. So in October, he took the reins and made some big adjustments including revamping his entire menu, pricing and bringing in experienced local chef, Eddie Vargas, who has been delighting Peninsula diners for decades with his simple, classic and creative style.
“Eddie brings a wealth of experience that has translated into better pricing without sacrificing fresh, quality ingredients ,” Shifrin says.
The result is lunch, brunch, bar and dinner menu featuring classic comfort foods for every taste including eight signature hand-made burgers crafted from natural, hormone-free beef, pizzas, salads, ribs, steaks, pastas and seafood. Kids will find their favorites and vegetarians will leave satisfied. Gluten-free
Entrees for both lunch and dinner start at $9.00. Morty’s full bar features a wide selection of beers, wines, and hand crafted cocktails. Happy Hour is possibly the best value around with beers starting at $3.50 and well drinks at $5.00 (Mon-Sat 3-7 PM). Morty’s Wine Wednesdays offers wine lovers a chance
to experience the expansive wine list and receive $10.00 off any bottle.
With an outdoor patio and open floor plan, Morty’s is also a perfect event venue and has consistently been given positive reviews for its private party capabilities. The new menu and pricing was debuted last week and Shifrin hopes that folks from all over the Peninsula will appreciate the changes. “We want
to be our guests’ own neighborhood bar and grill; a comfortable place to relax and enjoy great food, drink and atmosphere without having to break the bank.”
