Clio restaurant gets a makeover

Designer Peter Niemitz keeps the leopard-print carpet, expands the bar

Chef Ken Oringer’s calm demeanor was almost unnerving. His flagship restaurant Clio looked more like a sawdust-coated workshop than an award-winning French eatery as construction workers installed a new bar. During a tour of the mess, Oringer casually mentioned that the space would be reopening - in two days.

“It will be ready,’’ he said nonchalantly. Two days later, his prediction proved correct. Clio reopened on schedule with its first renovation in 15 years, overseen once again by designer Peter Niemitz.
