Dining at Tertulia in New York City

Last Saturday, a group of us shared a very special meal in the West Village of New York City at Tertulia, a fun and casual Spanish gastropub owned by Chef Seamus Mullen.  Chef Mullen traveled around Spain for several years and developed a particular fondness for the region of Asturias in Northern Spain and the sidrerias, or the local cider houses found there.  Mullen was impressed with the unique flavors of the cider and with the terrific home-style foods made in the kitchens.  When creating Tertulia, he drew from his experiences in Spain, both for ambiance and for flavors and has come up with a real winner!
