The best of Seville, Granada and Andalusia
You’re wandering the back streets of Seville, halfway through a full-on tapeo (tapas-crawl). As you choose among jewel-like salads, savory toasts, garlicky gazpachos and succulent seafood, all you can think is ¡Ponerse púo! (bring it on!). You roam from bar to bar, savoring dozens of delicacies in the company of a world-class chef who’s every bit as excited to be here as you are. There’s so much more to see and do in the upcoming week, so many architectural and culinary wonders to explore. But right now, you’re in no rush. You sit back, take another sip of wine, and ponder your next bite.
With you on this eight-day Andalusian adventure is award-winning chef Tory Miller, the force behind Madison’s globally inspired, locally sourced dining scene. His latest restaurant, the Spanish-inspired Estrellón, is an homage to tapas, and Tory is dying to return to the source.
If your idea of the perfect getaway involves sampling the freshest regional delicacies in the most lush settings, this trip is for you. Together, we’ll seek beauty in all its forms, from the grandest palace to the most rustic marketplace. Let’s explore the best of southern Spain.

3 Reasons to Travel with Tory Miller
Eating at chef Tory Miller’s restaurants in Madison, Wisconsin, is like going on a culinary world tour. Each with their own flavor and focus, Tory melds his passion for locally grown food with global inspiration. He’s a James Beard Award winner for Best Chef in the Midwest, and even beat Bobby Flay on Iron Chef Showdown. Seville and Granada with Tory will be a master class in culinary inspiration through travel.
He's Full of Good Ideas
A French-inspired Madison staple. A New York gastropub sendup. Fast-casual pan-Asian. Spanish tapas. These don’t sound like the restaurants of a single chef. But Tory has made a name for himself bringing new ideas to the table, all with joyful flavor and innovative thinking.
He Cares About Community
Tory’s restaurants provide locally-sourced cuisine to a larger audience while expanding on his love of worldly flavors. He wants people eating at L’Etoile, Graze, Sujeo or Estrellon to feel that blend of local and international.
He Loves Spain
Estrellon, Tory’s ode to Spanish tapas, is his newest endeavor and already a big hit. Tory traveled extensively in Spain to prepare for this new concept, and he’s dying to go back!
In the heart of the city, opposite the Parque de Maria Luisa stretching with greenery along the Guadalquivir River. The Melia is an avant garde masterpiece with all the comforts you'd expect, including indoor and outdoor pools plus a spa. The views from most every room are nothing short of stunning. Have a snack—and a drink—on the rooftop deck as you revel in Seville’s glorious skyline.
Hotel Palacio de Santa PaulaGranada
Nestled in Granada’s historic center, our magnificent Granada hotel is an artistic and historic monument built within a 16th-century convent and 12th-century Moorish house. Stroll to the Albaicin and Sacromonte sites, the wonderful Triunfo Gardens, and of course, the Alhambra. It’s our slice of that Granada magic to call home.
