Dear SOS: There is a small off-Strip casino in Las Vegas called Ellis Island. Its cafe serves the most delicious green beans I’ve ever had. It seems like a simple preparation with butter and garlic, but all my attempts to duplicate it have fallen short. I’d be very grateful if you can obtain the recipe.

Dear Sam: Ellis Island Casino & Brewery was happy to share its recipe for green beans, and there is no shortage of garlic flavor. “The secret to the green beans is our own blend of garlic salt and fresh chopped garlic,” the restaurant writes.
