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.
