Olean, NY: The Old Library

On the occasion of my sister's graduation from college, my family and I had the opportunity to visit The Old Library Restaurant to celebrate. It really does stand at the site of a former library and is a national historic site, as well as boasting a decor that features walls lined with book shelves. Our little alcove had several old law tomes to peruse.

The menu was varied traditional American. I ordered a special -- a filet stuffed with crab with a lemon buerre blanc sauce. Others at the table had a roast half-duckling with a plum sauce. I stole a few bites and thought that the better dish of the two. For dessert the table split the very berry tart and a piece of chocolate chocolate torte. It seemed as if everyone left with their appetites satisfied.
