AmREIT, Inc. has signed a lease with Morton’s Restaurant Group, Inc. for a new Morton’s Steakhouse to anchor AmREIT’s Uptown Plaza shopping center in Dallas, Texas. The new restaurant, which will occupy 8,500 square feet in the shopping center, will have a total seating capacity of approximately 224, and feature Morton’s “new look” that includes lighter, more inviting restaurant interior and exclusive private dining boardrooms.

Uptown Plaza is located across from some of Dallas’ finest hotels, including the Ritz-Carlton, is adjacent to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and is in close proximity to the new Woodall Rogers Park and the Dallas Arts District. Other tenants in the shopping center include Wells Fargo, Pei-Wei, Potbelly’s Sandwich, and The Cupcakery.
