sbe, the international hospitality company that most recently opened Doheny Room in West Hollywood, will open the second LA location of Cleo in LA Live. Formerly the Farm of Beverly Hills, the expansive space will cover 8,000 square feet with seating for 200 in the main dining area and 60 on the wrap-around patio.
Helmed by chef Danny Elmaleh, Cleo Downtown will offer the same Mediterranean and Middle Eastern-leaning shared-plate dining experience as the three Cleo locations in Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Miami. However, the newest outlet will offer breakfast and lunch along with new menu items for an all-day affair.
The newest location of Cleo is opening under Disruptive Restaurant Group, a subsidiary of sbe that will manage and expand the company's culinary concepts that also include Katsuya, The Bazaar by José Andrés, Hyde Kitchen + Cocktails, and Umami. Disruptive will also work with other hotel companies to bring to life new restaurant concepts.
Cleo at LA live will join neighboring sbe concepts Katsuya at LA Live and Hyde at Staples Center in October 2016.
