Last Friday, May 11th, marked the start of Tertulia's late night bar service. The bar will now be open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant has also opened their outdoor space and welcomes guests for lunch, weekend brunch, and dinner.
Chef Seamus Mullen spent the afternoon last Friday at 92Y, talking about his new cookbook, Hero Food. The book is a candid look at Chef Mullen's life living with rheumatoid arthritis, which he was diagnosed with five years ago. The book focuses on 18 ingredients that he calls "hero foods" that help maintain a healthier lifestyle.
"Seamus's "heroes" are real food, elemental things like good meat, good birds, eggs, greens, grains, and berries. He cares about how his vegetables are grown, how his fruit is treated, and about the freshness and sustainability of the fish he uses. His hope is that you will eventually forget about why these recipes are good for you, and that you'll make them just because they taste good."
