Adam Platt also approves of Tertulia:
"[Mullen's] cooking here is authentic in its essential Spanishness, but it's also brawny, seasonal, and deeply flavored in a nuevo rústico, distinctly New York kind of way."
Steve Cuozzo revisits Lincoln, bumping his one and a half stars up to three: "Today, Lincoln is better, but much of the improvement is on the floor, where the once-awkward crew now delivers three-star service. ... Even so, problems in the kitchen stubbornly persist."
