Best Tapas Restaurants in the U.S.: Tertulia

Evan Sung Photography

Tertulia, New York City

Chef/owner Seamus Mullen’s rustic tapas joint brings to mind the sidrerías (cider houses) popular in northern Spain’s Asturias region. Housed in a Prohibition-era speakeasy with brick archways, Tertulia has a long, narrow bar that opens up to a dining space centered around a custom-made wood-fired grill. It turns out versions of paella and arroz a la plancha that are chock-full of unexpected ingredients like fiddlehead ferns, snails, and jamón ibérico. Coal-roasted vegetables showcase the bounty of New York.
