A downtown Royal Oak favorite will now embark on a new chapter as a 7,000 square foot downtown Detroit restaurant.

Back in June we shared that La Dulce was moving to downtown Detroit, and today the team behind the restaurant sent word that they’re now open in the Crowne Plaza Riverfront, across from Cobo Center and a block over from the Apparatus Room.

Today, Daily Detroit got word the place is open along with some courtesy photos. So this isn’t a review or anything like that – this is more of passing along some info because we know folks are interested.

The new spot has 70 seats in the dining room and 25 seats in what they’re calling a “meadow” with fresh herb greenery and imported olive trees.

They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and say their expanded kitchen means that La Dulce can offer “large-scale dining experiences” and Spanish classics including suckling pig, shareable paella, and Spanish “Latas,” an array of cured items served table side.

According to La Dulce, new arrivals to the menu that are different than their old location include:

  • Piquillo Peppers & Crab (roasted red bell pepper sauce);
  • Tomahawk Steak (wild mushrooms and hand-cut fries);
  • Fried Rock Fish (served with sambal trio sauces);
  • Tuna Tataki (seared with ajo blanco sauc and wasabi tobiko);
  • Four signature Paellas (squid ink, pork rib, seafood or Farmer’s market).

On the drink side, there’s a 20 seat bar with three categories: Cocktails, spritzes and house gin & tonics.

Here’s the menu.

This will be interesting to check out.
