Located on Chicago's southside in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood, our mission is to bring elevated southern cooking to one of our cities most progressively transitional neighborhoods which happens to be a few blocks from from Chef Kristen grew up.

Cleo's pays homage to the late grandmother Chef Kristen Ashley, allowing her memory to forever live on through the amazing recipes she so effortlessly created.

A native of the big city of Chicago, Illinois, Chef Kristen has been a lover of food since her younger years watching her grandmother whip up southern soulful meals in her quaint kitchen on the southside of the city.

Spending hours on end in the kitchen, Chef Kristen learned to prepare dozens of her grandmother's favorites like her delicious fried chicken, mouth-watering pan-seared salmon to literally one of the best cornbread dressing and baked macaroni & cheese dishes ever created.

And while these southern dishes represent the bricks in Chef Kristen's culinary foundation, presenting the cuisine as visual pieces of art has become the next layer of importance
