From a press release:

On Wednesday, May 29, Del Campo, Chef Victor Albisu’s young Penn Quarter restaurant, opened its Asado Bar. Guests seated at the nine-seat counter overlooking the open kitchen window will be offered a pair of fixed-price menus that showcase the true art of the South American grill. The first menu is a $77, four-course exploration of the Asado tradition that offers a variety of grilled, smoked and burnt meat and seafood. For $42, the vegetarian menu gives diners a taste of the many ways smoke and char enhance and add flavor to vegetables, bread, cheese and fruit.

Reservations are available only via phone at 202-289-7377
Both menus are available online.
Wine pairings for both menus are available for $22

Del Campo debuted its patio seating earlier this week. Both the happy hour and dinner menus are available at the 40-seat space, which opens with the restaurant at 5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday.

  • Isn’t this the place that “graciously” debuted their happy hour menu a few weeks ago where their awesome happy hour deals include paying 7 bucks for a peroni beer?

    I didn’t even know places charged that much for Peroni during non-happy hour times. What a joke. Oh, and everything tastes burnt. There is a difference between grilled/charred and “burnt”. They don’t seem to have managed to figure it out yet.

  • I ate here a few weeks ago and the food was simply AMAZING! some of the best meat I’ve had in DC. Definitely an experience to see a huge board of sizzling meat being brought to your table. I was with two veggies and thty had fish that they said was very good. Oh, and get the meleted cheese app- incredible. Not cheap or fast food, but I can’t wait to go back.

      Am I reading this right…you were with two vegetarians, who ordered the fish? Even if they say it’s good, I’m not sure that’s praise that actually means anything.

      • I’m guessing they mean pescetarians. I don’t know why it’s so hard for people to understand that vegetarian means no meat, poultry, or seafood whatsoever.

          I don’t understand what is so difficult about this concept. What’s really funny is that in some parts of the south people consider themselves vegetarians because they don’t eat red meat. Huh?

  • I was there last night. Showed up at 7:15. The Asado bar was empty and I was told it was NOT open.
