My steak is bigger than your steak.

Super-corporate, super-expensive, super-good Morton's Steakhouse cuts the ribbon on a brand new (and totally unnecessary) Fort Lauderdale branch on December 14. That's at 500 E. Broward Blvd -- which, we suppose, will be a convenient spot for the few local carnivores who always secretly resented driving those extra 25 minutes to the Boca location. This opening begs a philosophical question at least as interesting as any steak: Do the rich people who regularly lay out $50 for an entrée really care about gas money? And, if so, is that the kind of anal-retentive behavior that made them rich in the first place?

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
