Meet David Camhi

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Camhi. 

Hi David, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Well, an amazing and challenging life…I was born in Mexico City in a restaurant family, started with my first restaurant 22 years ago, from there, it has been a fun ride, father of three incredible boys, 4 restaurants owned and operated, worked four years in a luxury hotel (Las Ventanas al Paraiso, Rosewood Resort), four years’ operating food and beverage for beach clubs and golf courses…now, in the prime of my life, I am the proud co-owner of two restaurants called La Lupita [Taco & Mezcal]. An avid and trying to be the best golfer I can be, 13 HC… 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Well, can’t say enough, I think I have lived an amazing life, but yes, tough years and growing up, for sure is not easy. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I think that passion is the key, really doing what you love sets anyone apart from the bunch…but of course, tons of working hours, training, reading, but mainly living it, when you do it, changes the perspective of your daily actions. I love being a good man, I love my teams and love to see them grown, personally and professionally. 

I operate restaurants, but I think of myself as a good host, love serving people. 

If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
Not a good student, but a very competitive sports guy, tennis at the highest all my life, since 4 until 16, in between, basketball, soccer, bowling, volleyball… then, lived life at full steam, went traveling and love to go out, went to college in Mexico City and very quickly the first restaurant.
