Categories Spanish Restaurant

One of New York’s most heralded new restaurants; Tertulia is the first solo venture of chef Seamus Mullen, who was previously at Boqueria. You may also recognize him from Food Network, since he’s been on The Next Iron Chef (in 2010) and on Chopped. For the West Village restaurant, Mullen took inspiration from a Northern Spain-style cider house and created a "nuevo rustico" (to quote New York Magazine) atmosphere and menu. The jamón Iberico, which shows up in three different items on the relatively small menu, gets special recognition, but the compact menu contains a range of familiar Spanish tapas as well as reimagined dishes like the Cojonudo…  Revisited, a cheeky name for "two bites" of smoked pig cheek with quail egg.

Arroz negro is unreal!!
Jeana Costa
Great rustic vibe. Crispy potatoes, shishito peppers, heirloom tomato + watermelon salad are all great starter tapas plates. Loved the bread pudding for dessert (and not usually my thing).
The Corcoran Group
Come here for the pan con tomate and the ham croquettes - both are amazingly delicious!
The whole menu is banging.

I love this place, I really, really love this place!
Sean Besser
Very good tapas
Sarah Nelson
Can I recommend everything? Impeccable food in lively atmosphere. Don't miss the beets, the arctic char, the lamb or the pan con tomate. Desserts are well worth it.
Serious Eats
Very recommendable ingredient-driven Spanish food in a fun, easygoing setting.

The best Spanish restaurant in town is run by a guy from Vermont named Seamus Mullen. Try his head-on langustinos and arroz a la plancha with Iberico ham and snails.
Carlos Pacheco

Approach Guides
Start with an oloroso sherry from the great Gutiérez-Colosía. For a red, try Capcanes' 'Costers del Gravet' from Montsant, Catalunya; this grenache-based wine is complex w/ generous, bright fruit.

One of the best dishes ever! Tosta Matrimonio black and white anchovies, slow-roasted tomato, sheep’s milk cheese, aged balsamic
Brian Ballan
This place is new, but it is fucking seriously amazing. Caballa y fabes. Tostada matrimonio. Croquetas. I will hunt you down.
West Village homage to the chigres of northern Spain, complete with wine on tap, cider served right from the barrel and regional eats.
John Wiseman
Seamus Mullen's new spot. If you dig Boqueria, hit it up.
