A pal called in search of a place in town that serves paella. Our longtime favorite was at Don Quixote, but that Spanish spot at First and Federal quit tilting at windmills a decade ago.

A couple of miles away at 1575 Boulder Street, Lola offers a Sunday night, family-style paella that's $16 per person. While we spend a lot of time at Lola -- we stopped by twice this past Sunday, and would have gone for a third round if we'd been able to move off our couch after the Bronco game -- we've never tried the paella. But if it's good as the rest of Lola's menu, it should be a mighty nice rice dish.

Just in case our pal can't wait until Sunday, though, we could use a few other paella suggestions. Post them here, and thanks.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
