Years ago, there was a real "diamond in the rough" in Olean, NY. It was called Rafi's. Amidst an uninspiring sea of traditional American and Italian restaurants, Rafi's offered an eclectic, diverse menu of European, Asian, and American entrees. While visiting family in the Olean area, I discovered the family is back on the Olean dining scene. Brother's Bistro is a great and welcome option! There are items on the menu that can't be found elsewhere in a 60 mile radius, including an array of entrees: seafood, chicken, lamb, duck, beef. Very tasty soups as well. Like Rafi's, it's a mixture of European, Asian, and American cuisine. The atmosphere is intimate, with seating for about 50 or so, and even some live music (on the nite we were there, they had a single guitarist playing some soft rock and jazz). Also worth a mention is the very attentive service. When I return to the Olean area, this is my choice for a restaurant! One note. If you are not familiar with Olean, you will have to keep your eyes wide open to spot Brother's Bistro. It's a narrow footprint on a corner on the main street downtown, but the signage is inconspicuous. Watch the numbers to look for 188 North Union Street. There seems to be a reasonable amount of street parking.
