Dulces had a long thriving life in Madrona for a number of years before Pritty Boys Pizzeria moved in on 34th Ave. They relocated to a downtown location under Pike Place Market, which boarded up in the summer of 2012, fairly quickly after it opened. Now the husband and wife team behind the Latin cuisine have moved closer to their old stomping ground in the Lawrence Lofts project on 19th & Madison.
Dulces has a newish name – Dulces Bistro & Wine, and a new look and feel. They have spiced up their menu, creating new spins on old favorites, and have expanded their wine collection extensively. They have a full bar, and happy hour daily from 5-7pm. We’re excited to check out the new menu items, and new location. If you’ve stopped in recently, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the new space!
