The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Is the new Tequila Murphy’s in Levittown your kind of place? Urban (make that suburban) cowboys may want to take note:
Cuisine: Irish Mexican
Sample menu items: Irish nachos (fries smothered with Monterey and Cheddar cheeses, bacon and scallions; ranch dressing on the side), build-a-burger (topped your way)
Drink specialty: “Famous fish bowls” – mixed drinks served in plastic gold fish bowls, each flavor made with 12 liquors. To share or not.
Major claim: "The only bar on Long Island with a mechanical bull.”
What else: Live music
Common sense advice: Do the nachos, burger and drink after, not before, getting on the bull.
Tequila Murphy’s is at 3275 Hempstead Tpke., Levittown, 516-934-0217
