Being on vacation this week has left little time in the kitchen for me, that included yesterday when we spent most of the day in L.A. First at the Cleopatra exhibit at the California Science Center, then dinner at Cleo’s (how fitting is that) and finally The Book of Mormon? Adrenaline pinching enough for you? The exhibit and show were great but really folks you know I’m all about the food and this was some delicious feast. With two vegans in our group the two of us ordered enough to split between the two of us plus share (when we felt like it). Cleo’s is a small plate Mediterranean restaurant located on Hollywood and Vine. It was dim and romantic which probably made the food taste twice as good. We ordered Babaganoush, hummus, Brussel sprouts (to die for), spinach salad with fresh figs and dried cherries, falafel, and spicy potatoes. I was so stuffed I could have fallen asleep during the show if it hadn’t been so hilarious! Recommendation – – Go see the show and eat at Cleo’s if you’re anywhere in the vicinity of Hollywood!!
