Oleana Restaurant Review

My Opinions: It's been awhile since I've been back even though I always have a good time and good food. I find the restaurant cozy, perhaps a bit cramped, and it's not necessarily convenient for me to get to, but I do like it when I go.  They do have great outside dining in the warm season - Service is casual and friendly with a working knowledge of the menu (you'll know why that's important if you've been there before) – their newest young member of the family is the bakery & cafe, Sofra (another place I like very much as well).

Some Food/Drink Tasted: Armenian Bean & Walnut Pâté - Whipped Feta with Sweet & Hot Peppers - Sultan’s Delight - Flatiron Steak - Rabbit Buried in Vermicelli - Nougat Glacé - Salted Butter Ice Cream

Eliot Spitzer Jokes

"Spitzer's going be out of office, he's going to be looking for a job, and I'm thinking, 'Whoa, isn't that what got him in trouble in the first place?'" - David Letterman

Q: Why did Eliot Spitzer's wife stand next to him when he publicly confessed to stepping outside his marriage?
A: It qualifies her to run for president on the Democratic ticket.

"... a lot of rumors about what is going to happen. If Governor Spitzer does resign over his prostitution scandal, it's been reported that he will go into private practice as a lawyer. That's what he's going to do. Yeah. When asked why he wants to practice law again, Spitzer said, 'I like businesses where you charge by the hour and screw your clients.'" - Conan O'Brien

Q: How did the people of the US know Eliot Spitzer was a Democrat?
A: He was caught with a woman.
