Simplicity reigns at Camphor — A Michelin-starred modern French bistro located in DTLA’s Arts District. The brainchild of owners and operators Sarah Lam and Cyrus Batchan of No.8 Hospitality and helmed by two young, impeccably pedigreed Co-Executive Chefs Max Boonthanakit and Lijo George, Camphor re-imagines the classic bistro experience. The two chefs collaborate to create a unique flavor identity through an unassuming yet nuanced menu with recognizable nods to the duo’s South and Southeast Asian backgrounds and classical French training. Intentionally designed to be a convivial neighborhood restaurant with an urban heartbeat, Camphor takes things back to basics with an unpretentious and enticing menu featuring an array of shareable small plates, heartier mains, scenographic desserts, classic cocktails with a French twist, and an enviable selection of French and European wines to pair.
