Taking cues from his Latin American roots and South American travels, Chef Victor Albisu, formerly of BLT Steak, debuts Del Campo.  Filling the old space of PS7’s, Albisu’s lifelong dream plays homage to the food and wine of South America.  Relax in the rustic yet refined atmosphere.  Settle in on a worn leather dining chair and take in the authentic collectibles and classic motifs that surround you. Del Campo’s menu has a strong focus on meat, showcasing Albisu’s asado grilling skills. Imagine a variety of slow-roasted meats, grilled vegetables, cheeses and cast-iron country bread served alongside crisp, vibrant sauces like chimichurri and salsa verde.

At the bar, find late-night casual South American street food including chivito and chori-pan sandwiches; grilled, skewered Peruvian anticuchos; and fried chicharones to pair with classic South American spirits such as pisco, cachaça and aguardiente, as well as celebrated regional favorites, like Argentinean maté tea. But the real standout is the list of South American wines. There’s something special in store for you to get close to the asado action. The Asado Bar will seat 9 and overlook the restaurant’s sizzling grills while offering a chance to interact with the expert asadors.  There are 3 different fixed-price menus and reservations are required.
