Desperate Times at Morton's the Steakhouse      

        Desperate times…Morton’s the Steakhouse tried to charge Dan Dorfman $2.50 for ice cubes last week.  When Dorfman protested, he was told it was $2.50 extra for a drink ordered “on the rocks.” The legendary financial writer and investigative reporter counted five ice cubes, fifty cents a rock. If you know Dorfman you know his protest was not pretty. “Eventually, they removed the charge,” he reports. “But I bet they get away with it more often than not since that's a place that attracts a fair-sized Wall Street crowd and I'm sure many of them say nothing.”
