From mouth-watering menu items (Lamb Sliders, Mussel Tagine and Mezzes galore!) to expertly mixed cocktails like the famous Vinebury, it’s no wonder that Chef Danny Elmaleh’s Cleo is a regular on culinary “best of” lists nationwide. His unique Israeli, Moroccan and Japanese heritage has established Elmaleh as the expert in Middle Eastern nouveau cuisine, and Matthew Rolston’s carefully curated décor makes dining at the Hollywood restaurant (located in The Redbury Hotel) an unforgettable dining experience. On the eve of this hot spots’ 4th birthday, we’ve got the same number of fun facts to share about our beloved Cleo:
- Almost all of Cleo’s employees have been with the restaurant since opening.
- Cleo was created in three months—from concept to grand opening.
- Cleo has sold 25,068 orders of Brussels Sprouts in the past year.
- This August, Cleo opened a second location at SLS Las Vegas with a dazzling entry way: Emina Cunmulaj—sbe CEO Sam Nazarian’s fiancée—as Cleopatra (Cleo’s namesake) in the entry way.
To get you even more excited about Cleo’s special Anniversary, we’re celebrating with a mouthwatering contest. All you have to do is post your favorite Cleo pics to social media with #cleoturns4 for a chance to win a VIP dining experience for you and three friends!
