Founder | west~bourne
A native Angeleno and adopted New Yorker, Camilla Marcus is committed not only to bridging her two favorite cities, but also giving back to the community. With the launch of west~bourne, an accidentally vegetarian and decidedly mindful concept in SoHo, Camilla cultivates her passions for design and dishes along with the deals and dirt it’s all built upon to make an impact. west-bourne brings people together to eat well and do good, which means a business model that incorporates youth job training, an emphasis on organic and local produce, and a zero-waste approach to benefit the planet and its people. An artist and cook at heart with a background in business development, law, and investing, Camilla has helped bring to life some of New York’s beloved neighborhood restaurants, including dell’anima, Riverpark, and the reopened Union Square Café. Formerly the Director of Business Development for Union Square Hospitality Group, Camilla has also worked in real estate investing for Colony Capital and CIM Group. With west~bourne, she is now both the investor and the entrepreneur, committed to rethinking what it means to be a good neighbor through the lens of hospitality.
