Camphor is here to reinvent the modern dining experience in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles. The simple yet complex menu, which won its first Michelin star in 2022, pays homage to the chefs Max Boonthanakit and Lijo George's South Asian and French culinary training. “Our goal with Camphor is to re-imagine familiar food we know and love in a simple yet elevated way. It was important to showcase both Lijo and my own background through the dishes we create together and find a harmonious balance between keeping the menu unassumingly classic, while at the same time re-imagining it with unique presentations and subtle spices for brighter flavors,” says Boonthanakit.
