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.

Seamus Mullen's new spot. If you dig Boqueria, hit it up.

Come here for the pan con tomate and the ham croquettes - both are amazingly delicious!

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.

Tasty tapas will transport you to the streets of Madrid. Tosta setas get two thumbs up.

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.

Awesome ambiance. Food was just ok. Maybe the octopus was worth eating. Paella was way too salty, and the croquettes were just mush.

Don't miss the tapas that brought chef Seamus Mullen so much success.

High price and small portions, but the taste is very good and combination interesting. Take something to drink, water tastes really bad.

Service is terrible- this is the second time I've been and was hoping it would be better. For a tapas place, the food takes FOREVER. Expect to leave underfed and two hours later than expected.

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).
