Until this evening’s visit, I had only frequented Murphy’s in the Virginia/Highland area for Sunday brunch. Loved their basket of fresh muffins and biscuits that accompanied menu offerings IMG_1174– and their freshly brewed coffee.

Just looking for something light, we just shared a few thing starting with flash-fried tender sweet calamari ($11) . This wasn’t served with the typical warm marinara sauce but with two sauces: a cocktail one usually accompanying other shellfish plus  a weird sauce of apple cider vinegar, diced Granny smith apples, garlic and IMG_1180crushed pink peppercorns.

In addition, we split an entree portion of  Murphy’s Caesar salad with their crispy shaved onion rings and spicy croutons ($8); and Murphy’s perfectly cooked, medium-rare burger, topped with an avocado mayo, Swiss cheese and smoked bacon that came with french fries ($12). No dessert for us, instead we just finished our bottle of Terrazas Argentinean Malbec ($28).

I’d recommend Murphy’s for Sunday brunch or for a quick bite
