Seamus Mullen

Seamus Mullen is an award-winning New York chef, restaurateur and cookbook author known for his inventive yet approachable Spanish cuisine, he is also a leading authority on health and wellness. Seamus opened his first solo restaurant Tertulia in Manhattan in 2011, which was awarded two stars from The New York Times and was a finalist for the James Beard Foundation Award for Best New Restaurant. In 2013, he opened El Colmado, a Spanish tapas and wine bar at Gotham West Market. More recently, Seamus has become a leading authority in the conversation on food, health and wellness. An avid cyclist who raced competitively in his twenties, he was diagnosed in 2007 with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that forced him to rethink his relationship with food, and led to his first cookbook Hero Food, published in 2012 and Real Food Heals, in 2017. Through food, exercise and lifestyle changes, Seamus was able to successfully turn his health around.


“Evyn and her team take a very broad and creative approach to public relations, often forgoing the low-hanging fruit for quality pieces. I may have a great idea but I won’t know how or where to share it and the team at EBC is great at strategizing and messaging.” -Seamus Mullen
