Julie & Carlos

That's Julie Guerero and Carlos Kainz, proprietors of Dulces Latin Bistro, exemplars of food and wine. Kudos this week from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, which gave Dulces its Award of Ultimate Distinction for its exceptional wine list.

This latest accolade comes as wine guru Carlos adds another 40-case wine cabinet to the private dining space called, not surprisingly, the Wine Room, bringing storage capacity to something like 1,800 bottles. Meantime, Julie is well into this month's special menu, emphasizing Spanish recipes like the fragrant seafood stew, zarzuela de mariscos that I enjoyed earlier this week accompanied by a glass of hearty red from the up-and-coming Toro region of western Spain.
