"Night + Market has become the restaurant New Yorkers want to visit when they come in from out of town." - Jonathan Gold, LA Times

Kris Yenbamroong is the 33 year-old chef and owner of NIGHT + MARKET restaurants. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Chef Kris has no formal culinary training -- but grew up in his family-owned restaurant, Talesai. He attended New York University and graduated with a degree in film. If NIGHT + MARKET restaurants were to have a mission statement, it would read as follows: "We aim to make the most delicious and authentic Thai food to facilitate drinking and fun-having amongst friends." There is a term for this in Thai: "aharn glam lao."
NIGHT + MARKET Weho continues the land on "best of" lists -- most recently named the 24th best restaurant (out of a list of 101) in Los Angeles by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, Jonathan Gold for the Los Angeles Times. During NIGHT + MARKET's first two years, he garnered back-to-back semifinal nods from the James Beard Foundation in the Rising Star Chef category. In 2016, Kris was a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation's Best New Chef West award. Within months of opening NIGHT + MARKET Song in Silver Lake ("Song" translates to "Two" in Thai), critics such a Gold and Patric Kuh of Los Angeles Magazine praised Chef Kris' authentic cooking. "[These] unique dishes would probably seem completely natural at a market stall in Thailand with the roar of motorbikes in the background," says Kuh, "but on Sunset Boulevard I can still love their subtle refinement. That's not lime sharpening the angles of the pork blood and MSG luu suk; it's fresh lemongrass."
