      Murphy's is the last of the old apostrophe-wearing restaurants that used to vie for the title of "Boise's Best Surf-n-Turf." Its contemporaries, Schott's and Milford's, have been bludgeoned into oblivion by recent economic recessions, so today only Murphy's remains. But this Broadway eatery carries on the traditions that made the others both loved and loathed in their time: excellent steak, fresh seafood and bills so large they come back tearstained.

      Murphy's was one of those restaurants my parents always took me to on Saturday nights. I remember the smell of steak and dark beer and the distinctive glow of green lamps like you see in big libraries. When I walked in last Thursday, the aroma was similar, but the landscape was entirely different. The simple booths had been replaced by a grand dining room with a vaulted ceiling and a semi-exposed kitchen. It was much more formal, but the boy and I still felt comfortable in jeans and jackets as the hostess seated us at a booth near the bar.
