Lawsuit Against Steakhouse Confirms Your Worst Fear About Eating at a Restaurant

The former sous chef of a Morton's Steakhouse in Florida has filed a civil suit against the restaurant in which he alleges that management turned a blind eye to sexual harassment, sexual assault and, um, pretty much exactly the most horrible thing you could ever imagine happening to your dinner in the kitchen.

From the NBC Miami report:

Williams said he was the victim of assault, battery, and had to leave Morton's after [chef Edmond] Bleus surprised him in a restaurant cooler, ripping his pants and underwear down and grabbing his genitals before he got away, the lawsuit claims.

That isn't Williams' only accusation against Bleus.

In the lawsuit, Williams claims Chef Edmond Bleus' daily task included preparing vegetables and asparagus, and he would place stalks of asparagus inside his underwear next to his anal and genital areas. He would then parade around the kitchen, and he would sexually abuse male coworkers both physically and verbally.


Morton's has declined comment on the allegations because it involves ongoing litigation. Also, probably, because they, like Gut Check, threw up in their mouths a little.
