Manhattan's west side, from Chelsea on down through the West Village and Greenwich Village, is particularly strong on Spanish specialists, with Tia Pol, El Quinto Pino, Txikito and, most recently, Tertulia, all genuinely compelling. Owner/chef Seamus Mullen (Boqueria, Chopped, The Next Iron Chef) comes by his Spanish chops honestly, having worked at kitchens in Barcelona and in the North, near San Sebastián. Tertulia's design certainly looks Spanish, with a chic blend of wood paneling, exposed brick, archways and dim lighting. The bar is pleasant for a glass of sangria or perhaps some tap wine provided by Gotham Project. There's a well-chosen Spanish wine list to go with plates of acorn-fed ibérico ham, grilled clams, lamb meatballs and garlic sausage with chickpeas and Cabrales cheese.
