Madrona's Dulces Latin Bistro has reopened Downtown as Dulces Bistro and Wine, says Allecia Vermillion. Vermillion reports that Dulces quietly opened its doors last week. Married co-owners Carlos Kainz and Julie Guerrero chose Typhoon's old space on Western Avenue for the new Dulces.
Though Typhoon closed in 2009 and the space had remained vacant for nearly two years, this same spot once catapulted Wild Ginger to great success. Dulces altered its name slightly to showcase Kainz's oenophilia and removed "Latin" to avoid giving the impression that it serves Mexican fare.
