Part of Oleana, Sofra, & Sarma Restaurants

Oleana is a James Beard award-winning restaurant led by chef Ana Sortun in Cambridge, MA. We serve thoughtful Eastern-Mediterranean food with locally-sourced ingredients and bold spices. We build long-term relationships with our employees and we support individuals who wish to further their career development within the food industry.

Our patio with a fountain, herb garden and fig tree is the perfect place to spend a sultry summer evening. But winter nights in the dining room are pretty warm and welcoming too, with Turkish carpets on the wall, a homey fireplace and banquette seating.

We have an open kitchen at Oleana, and it is tiny. But the flavors and creativity that emerge from it are as big as they come.
