The series chronicles how five American visionaries - Cornelius Vanderbilt, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, J.P.

Rockefeller, America's first billionaire, inspired a bartender at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Manhattan to create a martini just for him, Morton's The Men Who Built America menu features The Rockefeller Martini as its signature cocktail ($14). It is made with London Dry Gin, dry vermouth, bitters, lemon peel and an olive. The three-course Men Who Built America pre-fixe menu ($59.99) includes: Choice of Caesar Salad, Classic Dressing Chopped Spinach Salad, Warm Bacon Dressing or Morton's Salad, Blue Cheese Dressing, Chopped Egg & Anchovies

"Our partnership with MORTONS will offer the premier power dining experience," says Tracy Lenhart, Director, Consumer Marketing, HISTORY. "This is a great opportunity - and I should add, a first for HISTORY - not only to be able to partner with such a prestigious restaurant at a national level, but also to be able to customize a menu and a signature cocktail tailored to THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA. Through exposure around the country to this highly influential demographic, we'll drive viewers to the series and to the network overall, as well as give foodies a delicious culinary experience."

Senior Vice President of Operations of Morton's, Tim Whitlock added "Morton's is honored to be part of such a fantastic series. These men left their mark on America, and it's our pleasure to join HISTORY in commemorating and recognizing their achievements."
