Landry’s, a Texas-based hospitality company that purchased Morton’s the Steakhouse today, has closed the famed national eatery’s Brooklyn location at 339 Adams Street near Fulton Street, the Brooklyn Paper reported.

A spokesperson for the company, which cited “shifting demographics” as the reason for shutting up shop in Downtown Brookyln, declined to elaborate on its reasons.

“It’s too bad,” said local resident Chris James. “There aren’t a lot of good places to eat downtown. I hope a New American restaurant goes in.”

Meanwhile, a Morton’s steakhouse in West Palm Beach is closing its doors, citing similar reasons, the South Florida Business Journal reported.

“Over time, demographics shift —and so do the areas in which businesses thrive — and it’s because of this that we must close the Morton’s location in Palm Beach, said Kris Guthrie, vice president of marketing Landry’s.
