With its deft orchestration of Mediterranean and Turkish-influenced spices, Oleana warms you from the belly out. Dishes are opulent and layered with complexity (and incidentally, most are vegetarian-friendly)—from pomegranate spoon salad, draped with gigante beans and fried shishito peppers, to the much beloved baked alaska (we suspect there’s a fan club). The Eden-esque patio, a cocoon from Cambridge's stirrings, is sensually lush with flora and de rigueur in summer months.
