After almost two decades as Madrona’s high-end dining destination, Dulces Latin Bistro will reopen Wednesday as a more casual, family-focused restaurant.
Co-owner Carlos Kainz said the combination of a tough economy and a shifting customer base led him to adjust his offerings. Gone will be the tablecloths and the more complex platings. In their place will be rustic hardwood tabletops, lower prices and lighter dishes tailored to the palates of toddlers and parents alike.
“We’re making the restaurant more family friendly,” Kainz said, pointing out that many of his regulars from past years are on the older side and no longer eat out regularly.
Kainz has already been branching out with his new wine outlet and weekly free wine tastings, both of which he said have been going well and bringing in new clientele.
We’ll post some pics of the re-imagined space once they reopen.
