Not familiar with the name Meaza Zemedu? She may not ever make it onto Top Chef, but her sprawling Baileys Crossroads restaurant is, in its way, as personal an experience as Johnny Monis’s Little Serow, with dishes spiced exactly the way she likes them. Dig into her doro wat and you might think you’ve never eaten the dish before, so lush and lingering is the brick-colored sauce. And vegetarian dishes are just as sure-handed.
