From the neon sign out front, to the chandeliers, high ceilings, and plush drapery inside, to the garlic toast that starts the meal, Murray"s is pure vintage gold. And since 1946 Murray"s has been all about its signature steak, the Silver Butter Knife, a 28-ounce sirloin strip steak for two served on a sizzling platter, perfectly charred, and--you guessed it--so tender you can cut it with said cutlery. If you have room for dessert, try the bread pudding with whiskey sauce and raisins. They also have a swell early bird special Monday through Friday from 4:30 to 6 p.m., with a three-course dinner for $19.95. Budget dining is not just for grannies anymore.
