THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dulces Latin Bistro Restaurant Review: With its creative menu intermingling French, Spanish and Italian dishes, Dulce’s Latin Bistro is more than your classic neighborhood restaurant. But don’t let the stylish décor, white linens and uniformed servers intimidate you because, at its heart, the style here is casual and friendly. Carlos Kainz manages the front of the house with aplomb, and his wife, chef Julie Guerrero, oversees the kitchen. The menu changes seasonally with a choice assortment of flavors and local ingredients. Our favorite starters are the Alsatian onion tart; potent, pipian-covered chiles rellenos stuffed with cheese and crusted with cornmeal; or prawns in a chili-laced citrus butter sauce. A succulent rack of lamb encrusted with thyme and horseradish or veal scaloppine with its creamy mushroom sauce, a delight when chanterelles are in season, are top choices for mains. Menu mainstays include paella Valenciana and a hearty cassoulet. Guerrero excels with desserts ranging from bread puddings to pecan pie and cajeta (a Mexican caramel and chocolate tart). The international wine list is thoughtfully chosen.
