The newest hotspot to hit West Hollywood, Cleo Third Street comes from a line of award-winning branches around L.A., as well as New York, Miami, Las Vegas and the Bahamas. But don’t let the existence of multiple outposts detract from the intimate and cool vibe you’ll find at this SBE restaurant on level one of  The Orlando Hotel. Designed with socializing in mind, the vibrant atmosphere is enhanced by giant statement pieces, including a mural by acclaimed street artist Cryptik, a mirrored disco ball dangling over the entrance and intricate mosaic tile walls. In this dramatic setting, Moroccan, Mediterranean and Asian flavors merge into one delicious culinary style. Chef Danny Elmaleh’s dynamic Japanese-Israeli background shines through the menu of shareable plates and mezzes, including meatball tagine, crispy artichoke hummus and curried calamari. While there are plenty of meat options on the menu, vegetarians are also pleased by the variety of offerings. The location on one of the hottest blocks in L.A. (you’ll want to use Uber or a valet parking app for sure) comes complete with gorgeous indoor and outdoor dining and bustling bar area. The Orlando Hotel, 8384 W. 3rd St., Los Angeles, CA, 323.579.1600,
