De la Torre's and La Bodega
Miguel and Maggie de la Torre have owned and operated Louisville's sole Spanish restaurant, De la Torre's, on Bardstown Road for more than two decades. They also own the city's only Spanish tapas bar, La Bodega, right next door.
Miguel, a native of Spain, is the chef; his wife, Maggie, manages the front of the house. They say their goal is simply to share the taste of Spain.
A fire at La Bodega devastated the business in late 2008, and it took the couple nearly a year to reopen the tapas bar.
Following their grand re-opening, "Louisville Life" sits down with the de la Torres to learn more about their restaurants, their working relationship, and their success.
De la Torre's is a member of the Louisville Originals.
