    Practice Makes Perfect - In Spanish, solera describes a wine-making process. In English, Solera means consistently good meals.

    Change is good. Very good, judging from a few recent meals at Solera. That's the restaurant now occupying the East Colfax Avenue space that housed the Firefly Cafe for many years and in 1999 became the much more sophisticated Ambrosia Bistro. Mar...
