Fodor's Expert Review Oleana

$$$ Cambridge Mediterranean Fodor's Choice

With three restaurants (Sofra in Cambridge and Sarma in Somerville) and two cookbooks to her name, chef-owner Ana Sortun continues to bewitch area diners with her intricately spiced eastern Mediterranean meze (small plates) made with fresh-picked produce from her husband's nearby Siena Farms. Oleana's menu changes often, but look for the hot, crispy-fried mussels starter and Sultan's Delight (tamarind-glazed beef with smoky eggplant puree) along with Turkish-spiced lamb and lemon chicken. In warm weather the back patio garden is a hidden utopia.
