Our news that the operators of long-time Madrona restaurant Dulces were moving into Broadway’s Joule building lasted exactly one week. We’ve heard from a person close to the situation that issues came up with the Joule build-out and now the new plan for a move for Dulces to another Capitol Hill location is already public.
At the end of December, we reported that craft distillery and tasting room Oola was looking for a restaurant to join its overhaul of the old bakery building at 14th and Union. Dulces owners Carlos Kainz and Julie Guerrero are telling customers that they are now planning to be Oola’s new neighbors:
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Dulces in Madrona last evening. This place is still such a treat! Spoke with the owners about their future plans and things have changed a bit. They are not moving to Broadway as was previously reported. They are finalizing plans to join the brewery moving into the long vacant space at the corner of 14th and Union . FYI to those that recently purchased groupons for use at Dulces, the owners wanted to communicate that wherever they reopen – whether it is called Dulces or not, they are going to honor the groupons that were sold to their loyal customers. You still have a couple of weeks to enjoy the wonderful food, ambiance and hospitality that we have all come to know and love from the Dulces location in Madrona for the last 16 years. Their last day in Madrona is January 28 (I would call ahead for rezervations as they were quite busy last night).
