We told you HERE in March that Frency-Vietnamese-inspired pop-up Camille (Website) and we finally have some renderings to share of what to expect when it opens in the near future.
Camille started as a pop-up at East End Market roughly a year ago in the market’s new second-floor venue, The Neighbors, and has garnered rave reviews. Led by Chef Tung Phan, the menu features seasonal ingredients and proteins like fresh Florida fish and locally-grown produce and citrus – think deconstructed Surf n’ Turf Banh-Mi, Maine Lobster Banh Xeo, and Key West Pink Shrimp with bourbon-aged Nuoc Cham.
Tung was the first resident chef at The Neighbor’s Domu Lab, which was designed to be a restaurant concept incubator, under the mentorship of restaurateur partners Jimmy and Johnny Tung and Sean Nguyen.
“Orlando has been my home for 20+ years. I grew up going to Viet Town with my parents, experiencing the different produce and ingredients that my mom and dad would pick up after Sunday mass. I chose Orlando because of its rich Vietnamese culture. Having Camille put down roots in Baldwin Park so close to our first home at East End Market is the only place I see right.”– CHEF TUNG PHAN
The new 2,500 SF space will be located in Baldwin Park near Seito Sushi at 4962 New Broad Street [GMap] and feature 25-seats, and operate as a chef’s tasting menu with five to 10 courses, paired with cocktails, sake, and beer. They will be open for dinner only with two seatings each evening, by reservation only.
An opening date has not been announced.
