Round Reuben at Murphy’s Law Irish Bar & Grill
Murphy’s Law is a nondescript gaming bar on East Flamingo; however, hidden away in a kitchen the size of a small automobile is chef Michael Colby — the Charlie Daniels of the fryer. His is not a necessarily low-calorie menu but it’s definitely tasty. The Round Rueben is genius — a whole Reuben macerated through a grinder and deep-fried in Colby’s special beer batter. The result: a meaty sphere cooked to perfection in a dish worth checking out. — Jim Begley

New York Deli Night at the Rampart Casino buffet
Head to the west part of town to get a taste of Back East at the Rampart Casino buffet’s New York Deli Night. A majority of the products are shipped in from the East Coast specifically for the Thursday night noshing, while the Doc Brown’s sodas are unlimited. Highlights are the chopped liver, smoked salmon and egg creams. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Houston Street on the Lower East Side — without the scary taxicabs. — JB
