Q:About a year ago, Westword raved about an Ethiopian restaurant. Is it still worthy?

A:Denver has a surprising number of Ethiopian eateries, and Arada Ethiopian Restaurant (3504 East Colfax Avenue, 303-329-3344) remains one of my favorites. It’s run by a very charming, welcoming family; although the location is tough and the space is tiny, there are always fresh flowers on the tables. The family also knows how to pour on the spices to create flavorful, multi-layered cooking, and their spinach, lamb and beef dishes are particularly noteworthy.
