|Christmas Spirit at Tertulia
similar to many of the restaurants in that area. When walking in, the bar is on the left near the front of the door and as you get by the folks either drinking or waiting for a table the restaurant opens up to 20 tables. The kitchen open in the back so you get to see the food being prepared. The best word to describe Tertulia is cozy. I spent two weeks in Spain last year and got to really understand some of the great Spanish dishes that are served Tapas style. At Tertulia there are a few menu items that have been taken from Southern Spain and transformed to more articulate dishes with flavor refinements, featuring ingredients and spices from Morocco.

Moving on our final 2 dishes were both amazing, the Cordero al la Brasa, Grilled Lamb Belly with with marinated Eggplant and Garlic Labne. I love any meat belly and the lamb belly was delicious with great fat to meat ratio that is savory, the eggplant provided a bite and was so good we wished we had more.
Tertulia is definitely on my list for great tapas in a cozy environment. They provide a different style of food that is enhanced by Chef Mullen.
