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.

  • One of the best dishes ever! Tosta Matrimonio black and white anchovies, slow-roasted tomato, sheeps milk cheese, aged balsamic
