Landry's cooks up a Signature Chef Series for spring, starting with Morton's

With its purchase of Morton's and McCormick's & Schmick, Landry's became one of the biggest restaurateurs in the metro area. And for the next several weeks, Landry's Signature Chef Series will be put a different chef in the spotlight each week, with a multi-course meal at 7 p.m. every Tuesday. First up? Robert Wiltshire at Morton's in LoDo. See also: Landry's gets in the swim with steak, cake, mermaids and a giant shrimp
