I feel so good that I finally got to Tertulia. It has been top of my list. Friday night at 615 I was able to snag a seat for two at the bar. By 620 there was back-up trying to get a table. There is a reason for that. The food is fantastic, the menu is really creative and the place is warm and cozy. There is something really laid back and DIY about the place that I really love. Kind of can't beat it.
The classic pan con tomate which is the key to Spain. Chopped tomatoes with sea salt rubbed over toasted bread. Next to it is black and white anchovies with roasted tomatoes over a piece of thin toasted spread with a sheeps milk cheese dripped with balsamic vinegar. Wow. Salty, savory and sweet all rolled up into one.
Honestly I could have had more tapas. Looking forward to returning...soon.
