Living for the City: Thierry Klemeniuk

Living for the City

Before becoming an international restaurateur, Thierry Klemeniuk launched pop group Bananarama and worked under Patrick Demarchelier. These days, he co-owns Bash in Miami and Gotham’s Lotus. Last month, he opened a Stateside branch of his chic Parisian boite, man ray, in a converted Chelsea firehouse.

NYC as habitat: “It’s New York. There’s always people here. It’s not a season town.”

Inspiration: “The city is a challenge. It’s not easy to open a restaurant here. At first I was scared, but the response has been good.”

Recent events: “Like everyone I am completely devastated and destroyed. We don’t want (terrorists) to win, because they want us to feel bad and kill the economy. And I think it is very important that people don’t get depressed and move on.”

Coping: “I felt so American — I arrived (in the U.S.) two days before. I felt like everybody with a flag. I think the reaction … is wonderful and represents the power of America.”
