The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Bull and burgers in Levittown
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
