Plug a 2" drain in basement


What's the best way to plug a 2" pvc drain line so it will be flush with the basement concrete floor.

I rerouted a 2" drain over a few feet along the main steel I-beam in my basement and tied into the main waste line.

I'm finishing the basement and don't need this drain any longer. I want to seal it up properly and eventually will have tile floor over it.

My thought was to cut if off flush with the floor and then insert a pipe plug (compression type with the wing nut) below grade so that the remaining cavity could be filled with cement or mortar. Thinking this would be about 2 cups full of mortar on top of the plug.

Or should I tile around this, cap it with a decorative cap and have access to it in the future if plans change or as a cleanout?
