Best Seat in the House: Table 101 at Cleo in Miami Beach

The restaurant: Cleo at the Redbury Hotel, 1776 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; Chef Danny Elmaleh and team opened this South Florida outpost of their successful Mediterranean restaurant last fall, adding to Cleo locations in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The table: 101. I like the upstairs dining room at Cleo, where you get a sense of all the action going on below from a semiprivate setting. It’s like having booth seats at the theater. Ask for Table 101, a four-top, and sit next to each other rather than across for added romance.

Nearby theater: The Fillmore, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach.

Playing next week: David Crosby performs at 8 p.m. Tuesday; $45-$65,
