After hearing from Food Dabbler, one of my favorite posters, i thought that i should go back to Oleana. I am a fan of Turkish/Middle Eastern food and grew up eating at the Casbah in Chicago - which a Turkish friend said was the equal of the best in Istanbul and still really enjoy getting some flafel and schawarma on my trips to NYC,
Sitting at the bar was nice though the light was too dim for my attempts to read Q.E.D.. The service was good though I was dressed up with a coat and tie. I never seem to get bad service or I am very tolerant.
But i was not that impressed by the food. The bread was ok, possibly a bit stale though the olive oil was good. The flafel wrap was very good but I did not really like Sultan's delight. I am willing to go back; it is not far from where I live, but what should I order?
I do not automatically prefer NYC to Boston; i am happy with our Chinese restaurants and Indian choices. But this restaurant, which many people love, seems a puzzle to me. Good but not outstanding.
