Camphor, the Los Angeles bistro with a Michelin star, is coming to New York City next week as part of a pop-up with the Vietnamese restaurant Monsieur Vo. On September 27, the two businesses will serve a four-course tasting menu with Vietnamese beef stew and French onion tarts. Tickets priced at $195 per person are available on Resy. Camphor, from two alums of the French chef Alain Ducasse, opened in Los Angeles in March 2022; it was awarded a Michelin star later that year.
Another taqueria from a popular Mexican restaurant
Earlier this month, Eater reported that Gerardo Alcaraz and Chris Reyes, the chef and owner of the Mexican restaurant Aldama, were opening Tacos and Tostadas El Chato in the Market Line food hall. Later this year, the taqueria will open a second location at 620 Manhattan Avenue, near Nassau Avenue, in Greenpoint — the former location of Screamer’s Pizzeria, which closed on September 4. The taqueria will specialize in carne asada, al pastor, and other meats, with seafood tostadas inspired by Aldama’s summer pop-up.
