GRAMERCY. The Rodeo Bar, conveniently situated on the corner of 3rd Avenue and 27th Street, is one of the few places in the Murray Hill area where you can hear live blues, country, Southern rock and down-home bluegrass all in one spot. Resembling a Texas roadhouse, this bar and grill may have gone a little over the top with the country-western theme, but the majority of the peanut-munching patrons seem to pay it no mind. The Rodeo serves up a pretty decent Tex-Mex menu that features everything from “Cowboy Kisses” (jalapenos and shrimp wrapped in bacon) and Texas fajitas to barbecue and country-fried steak. Of course, the big draws here are their jumbo margaritas, which come in fish bowls.
