Nafissatou Diallo, the hotel housekeeper who accused former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault in 2011, has opened a West African restaurant in the Bronx, reports The New York Times. Strauss-Kahn is currently on trial in France in connection to a prostitution ring.
Chez Amina Restaurant, which opened on Boston Road in May 2014, features West African specialties and Spanish cuisine, and is open between 5 a.m. and 3 a.m. each day.
“She cooks, she serves, she helps out,” an employee told The New York Times. “Anything that is available to do, she does.”
According to The New York Times profile, Diallo is often recognized by customers, but they opt not to bring up her past. “It’s the best food, that’s what I know,” said an immigrant from Sierra Leone who sometimes orders from Chez Amina twice a day. “I don’t watch the news. It’s too much headache.”
