Take the bounty of the Pacific Northwest, fuse it with the glory of French, Spanish and Italian cooking, and add a dose of Mexican flair and you get the Euro-Latin cuisine of chef/owner Julie Ann Guerrero. Her unique style comes alive in dishes like Paella Valenciana, Cassoulet de Porc et Canard, and Fettucini alla Vongole. Husband/owner Carlos Kainz, whose 32 years in the business have been fueled by his passion for wine, offers a 25% discount on his entire list every Wednesday, encouraging diners—most of whom become regulars—to try something new or extravagant. Dulces has been thriving since 1992, having started as a quaint bakery/café. Today, it is truly a neighborhood spot where customers are known by name and the restaurant's name, which is Spanish for "sweets," sums up the "sweet" experience.
