777 I Street, NW
I’ve got the chills. Thanks to Mary for sending! Last month we learned:
“Nearly five years after opening the award-winning South American steakhouse, chef Victor Albisu is replacing Del Campo with two Mexican concepts. Taco Bamba, his wildly popular counter-service taqueria, will have its first permanent D.C. home in the front bar and dining room, while the back dining room and patio will welcome Poca Madre. Albisu’s first upscale Mexican concept will offer a refined menu for dinner only.
When Taco Bamba opens as a permanent concept the week of April 2, it will do so with a new-to-Chinatown look.
Renovations to the back dining room and enclosed patio are expected to finish in April for a spring opening of Poca Madre, which is Mexican slang for “really cool.”
Albisu is actively searching for a new location to open Del Campo in the District.”
