New York’s Spanish-cooking star Seamus Mullen (an Irishman by way of Vermont) opened his new spot, Tertulia, in the West Village last week. Eater interviewed the Next Iron Chef finalist this afternoon about his inspiration and the importance of authenticity when it comes to Spanish cooking. “To me, this place is authentically New York,” says Mullen, who will incorporate great local ingredients into his recipes. What’s most important to us is that his food is delicious, like this recipe for Chicken Salad With Piquillo Dressing.

Grilled Chicken Sandwiches.

Continuing a casual dining streak this summer, President Obama stopped for takeout last night while on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard. He and wife Michelle picked up dinner at Nancy’s Restaurant, which sells beach-shack seafood plates with fried clams and grilled chicken sandwiches from a snack bar window. Apart from being easy, simple dishes are often deliciously crave-worthy, especially with summer accoutrements, as in F&W’s warm grilled chicken sandwiches with mozzarella, basil and deep red tomatoes.

I am super-excited that Lady Gaga will be performing at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards—both for the music and to see what she’ll be wearing. Another version of the meat dress? A tiara of frozen confections to echo the ice cream truck in her newest video? She’s not the first out-there artist to venture into the food and wine world, though. Audacious rocker Marilyn Manson is now making an absinthe cheekily dubbed Mansinthe in Germany (perhaps it induces the sort of hallucinatory effects he employs in his videos). Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, who became enamored with Arizona as a “harsh yet mystical” winemaking terrain, debuted his first wine from his Arizona vineyard, Caduceus Cellars, back in 2006. Justin Timberlake has devised yet another way to get us on the dance floor with his new 901 Silver Tequila. Even Aussie rockers AC/DC are getting in on the action with their own wine label. It launches in Australia this week with hilarious varieties like Back in Black Shiraz, Highway to Hell Cabernet Sauvignon and You Shook Me All Night Long Moscato. Gaga’s currently working on a fashion collaboration with Nicola Formichetti for Barneys. If she doesn’t start making wine, at least maybe she can think about meat dresses for the masses?

Chicken with Succotash.

Chef Michel Nischan—who co-founded The Dressing Room in Connecticut with the late Paul Newman—is continuing to help those in need gain access to fresh food through his Wholesome Wave Foundation. According to the Atlantic, the program, which doubles the value of food vouchers when used at farmers’ markets, now operates in 30 states. With national greenmarkets booming, in number and literal abundance, using local produce to prepare Nischan’s Skillet Chicken with Summer Succotash is an easy way to celebrate the chef’s work and culinary acumen.

Museum of Old and New Art; Tasmania, Australia
There aren't many places in the world where you can drink world-class Riesling and see a piece of art that caused a culture war. A new destination is this $80 million, 64,500-square-foot new art museum, built by gambling mogul David Walsh to house his massive contemporary-art collection. On display are works by Damien Hirst, Sir Sidney Nolan (his Snake, pictured, consists of 1,620 paintings) and Chris Ofili, whose elephant dung–encrusted portrait of the Virgin Mary was called "sick" by former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Located on-site are Walsh's excellent Moorilla winery, brewery, restaurant and eight artist-designed "accommodation pavilions"—even more reasons to make the trip. mona.net.au.

Insider's Tip: The best and most scenic way to reach the MONA complex is a 45-minute ferry ride up the Derwent River from the Tasmanian capital, Hobart.
