This January marks one year since Morrie’s Steakhouse arrived in Sioux Falls, transforming the former Foleys into a new fine-dining experience that has been embraced locally and even internationally.

As Morrie’s prepares to mark its anniversary, the restaurant is reflecting on a successful first year while planning exciting new additions for 2018.

Here are a few highlights:

Wine Spectator honors

Morrie’s was named a Best of Award of Excellence winner from Wine Spectator magazine.

It’s the second-highest designation the magazine awards and the first time a South Dakota restaurant has achieved it

“These wine lists display excellent breadth across multiple wine-growing regions and/or significant vertical depth of top producers, along with superior presentation,” the magazine said. “Typically offering 350 or more selections, these restaurants are destinations for serious wine lovers, showing a deep commitment to wine, both in the cellar and through their service team.”

Morrie’s has 410 wine selections and 2,400 bottles in its inventory, Wine Spectator reported.

Best in S.D.

The website Thrillist named Morrie’s the best steakhouse in South Dakota in 2017, calling Sioux Falls “the best culinary scene in America that you don’t know about.”

Morrie’s was compared to a plush, big-city steakhouse, complemented by a menu full of Midwestern beef. Thrillist especially loved the bone-in tenderloin and Iowa pork chops served with pork-belly fried rice.

 Honored for excellence

Morrie’s Steakhouse also received a Distinguished Restaurants of North America Award for restaurant excellence. The DiroNA is an elite list that has recognized excellence in fine dining throughout 650 restaurants in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

What’s next

Our chefs have been meticulously planning exciting new additions to the Morrie’s menu. Some of them will debut in January, so watch for details soon. And yet this winter, watch for a new bar menu. It’s still in development but promises to turn the Morrie’s bar area into an even more distinctive experience.

Thanks to all who have dined at Morrie’s for helping make it an outstanding first year!
