Today Steven Lewis files another lengthy interview with important nightlife figures. This time the subjects are KyKy and Unik, veteran club owners and promoters who discuss their investment in Samuelsson's latest venture, Merkato 55: "I had some money that I save when I sold PM, and I give it to them. I’m not a restaurant guy. So what I do is add money...He went ahead and came up with this concept, and we know the landlord of the building, which is a good friend of ours, and he wanted us to be involved...Marcus did a good job with the food....my role. I just go there and taste the food everyday." [Good Night Mr. Lewis]
