  • 2015 Best Mediterranean/Middle Eastern

Since opening in 2001, Oleana has served its Cambridge neighbors James Beard award-winning takes on Mediterranean fare from chef Ana Sortun, like spinach falafel with tahini and beet yogurt, roasted lamb shoulder or mezze plates off a vegetarian tasting menu, finished with crowd-favorite coconut ice cream Baked Alaska in passion fruit caramel. The elegant dining room marked by a wood-burning fireplace or a lush garden patio set the backdrop for imbibing aperitifs, Old World wines, craft beers or low-proof cocktails like The Sortini (sherry, Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, orange).
