Spike Lee Interviewed at Morton's: ESPN's Lunch with a Legend
Morton's restaurant is known for its juicy steaks and classic martinis. But, Tuesday, November 24, you won't be staring at your filet as much as you will be at Spike Lee, famed film director, producer, writer and actor, as he's interviewed by ESPN radio.
The series, Lunch with a Legend, a collaboration between Morton's and ESPN radio, began about two years ago at Morton's in Chicago and has since expanded west. Previous interviewees include John Robinson, USC and Rams coach, as well as Peter Gammons, sports writer and National Baseball Hall of Fame nominee.
This month's non-sports-oriented, Hollywood-legend-themed lunch will be led by Andrew Siciliano and Mychal Thompson of 710 ESPN. The prix fixe $50 lunch menu features Morton's classic dishes: Caesar or Morton's salad; filet mignon, salmon or chicken Christopher. And for dessert, double chocolate mousse. When your waiter arrives to take your order, you'll know to do the right thing.
