Best of Boston

2015 Best Al Fresco Restaurant


Oleana could serve its lush menu from the back of a pickup truck in a parking lot and the place would still draw crowds. Fortunately, Ana Sortun’s ode to all things Turkish and Mediterranean has a patio oasis, complete with a bubbling fountain, fragrant herb garden, shady fig tree, and heat lamps for chilly summer nights, all lit by strands of overhead lights. During stormy weather, the glassed-in porch makes an equally fine perch.
