I had to bring my girl Sophie here before she grew up and got a wiff of high-society and haute cuisine and would never turn back to her Minneapolis roots of old. Murray's is like a postcard for a bygone era of mauve diningrooms, linen tablcloths, lush curtains, airy mirrors, butterknife steaks, garlic toast and cheesy potatoes. This is where you brought family members to let them know you had arrived, that you were about to announce something special or were to embark on a journey in life from which there may be no turning back. Garrison Keillor made Murray's legendary with his story published in Time magazine. The waiters are old professional scriptors of a world of elegance and they also carve huge slabs of meat as big as footballs and arrange them neatly on your plate.
A one time experience, although, I know guys who do lunch here many times a week.
