Morton's IAPM branch
has closed and cited the COVID-19 outbreak as the reason, according to a company notice. The steak and martini house closed for good on 11 February citing the "difficulties of the industry" and an "inability to continue operating". Other Morton's branches in Lujiazui
appear to be unaffected. Maybe the first high-profile place to be pushed over the edge by the Special Period, but unfortunately, undoubtedly not the last. Click the jump to see the original document in Chinese.
