Cleo: Cleo, located on Park Ave and East 30th Street inside The Mondrian Hotel, is a great, modern, upscale Mediterranean spot to head to on a Saturday night. The main bar is a fun hangout spot within itself – located at the very front of the restaurant with plenty of seating and a wide variety of cocktails to choose from! We tried a whole bunch of delicious food, including the hummus, zucchini chips, and Greek salad to start. The pita bread that comes with the hummus was extra doughy, which we really appreciated. Next up, we went for the chicken kebabs, brussel sprouts and saffron rice. The brussel sprouts with hazelnuts, orange, fresno chili, cilantro, and soy sherry vin were the winner by far …. until we got to dessert. Don’t leave without trying the sticky toffee pudding which comes with butterscotch, walnut tuile, and vanilla gelato. The chocolate cake underneath the ice cream came out smoking hot, with actual steam released as we cut into our first bite! We must note that the service was also extra outstanding, from great recommendations on what to order, to making sure our wine glass was always perfectly full. Thanks, Cleo, for making us feel like Cleopatra ;).
