Harry Morton who was founder of a US restaurant chain has been found dead in Beverly Hills. He founded the chain back in year 1999 when he was only 18 years old.
Harry Morton was ex-boyfriend of an American singer Lindsay Lohan. He dated the celebrity back in 2006. Also he had links with Hayden Panettiere, Jennifer Aniston, and Paris Hilton. According to the reports, one of the relatives of Morton found him unresponsive in his home.
Morton is the son of Peter Morton, who is founder of the Hard Rock Café. Also Morton is grandson of Arnie Morton who founded Morton’s Steakhouse. He was only 38 years old. According to the resources, Morton was found to be unresponsive in his home. When taken to the hospital in LA he was announced to be dead. Later his dead body was sent to the county coroner’s office for an autopsy to know the exact cause of death.
No doubt, Morton’s father and grandfather earned huge name. However, Morton earned fame for himself on his own. He is the founder of trendy eatery named as Pink Taco in year 1999. Also he was the owner of the renowned live music venue i.e. The Viper Room.
First of the Harry’s Pink Taco was at the Hard Rock Hotel and casino in Paradise, Nevada. He added his second location in Scottsdale, Arizona in 2006. Third location of his chain was inaugurated in Century City, LA back in 2007.
It is worth stating here that Scottsdale location was closed right after three years. It was because of the controversy surrounding the name of the said restaurant. It is because few people found the name to be offensive and degrading towards women. In 2012, Harry shared about how he came up with the restaurant’s name. He specialized in Mexican cuisine. He said, “If I could go back, I would change the name. It started off as a funny idea.; it was a joke at the time,” explained Morton. “But now we pride ourselves on our ability to evolve, and the food speaks for itself. We’re not trying to be a one-trick pony or a funny-named restaurant. The name isn’t even provocative anymore, it’s almost cliché. If we kept trying to play that hand it would be boring. The name is what it is. But at least it’s catchy and internationally known.”
He worked as reserve deputy as he was one of the active supporters of local law enforcement.He worked with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s department. Morton was honored as the Reserve Detective of the year at the Annual Reserve Forces Recognition dinner.
News i.e. Pink Taco CEO Harry Morton, Ex-Boyfriend of Lindsay Lohan, Found Dead In His Beverly Hills Home was a shocking news indeed. In addition to Lohan, he was also linked with Britney Spears, Demi Moore, Jenifer Aniston, and former RHOBH star Brandi Glanville. We all pray that his soul rests in peace. All his friends and family members are really sad at this loss.
