Any number of puns can be made regarding the difficulty of finding The Lost Room, but it is not particularly hard to locate: it’s simply not in the spot most people would expect to be looking for it.
The area around street 21, south of 294 is a terrific neighbourhood (I know because it’s mine), but it’s not a hotbed of activity after 5pm. In a recent piece in GQ on the new face of Paris dining, Alan Richman wrote about the surge in low-key “destination restaurants masquerading as neighborhood restaurants”.
The Lost Room is the Phnom Penh equivalent.
