AA was originally conceived as a Paris cafe & shop by a London-born, Nippon-schooled Nigerian and his designer GF; then the pair broke it off, but instead of killing each other, they opened a Chinatown emporium bearing both their middle names: a sub-sidewalk grotto street-visible by only its cherry red door, eclectically deco'd w/ jazz LPs, shelves of used books & curios, and a vintage kitchen stove & claw-foot bathtub, which is apparently not for bathing.
