Celeste Fierro and Jonathan Segal in Haute Living Los Angeles

 Segal is a polished man with a handsome British brogue and a vibrant energy.

Pick up this issue of Haute Living Los Angeles to read about The ONE Group’s Celeste Fierro and Jonathan Segal. The duo behind A-list spots like Coco de Ville, STK and their new venture, Asellina, discuss the recession, innovative ideas and upcoming openings.

“You always do your best work in a recession where you plan for the turn,” said Jonathan Segal, founder and chief executive officer of hospitality mecca The ONE Group, which currently operates 21 venues worldwide, including STK and food and beverage for the Gansevoort hotels in both Miami, New York and Turks and Caicos. “These are times of mergers and acquisitions.”
