DETAILS
Chef-owner Victor Albisu turns out artful Peruvian and Latin American fare at Chinatown standout Del Campo, with wood-grilled meats highlighting the menu.




Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly. Late night Thu-Sat. "Smoke — that's what hits you first. The aroma of sweet smoke coming off everything from skirt steak and sweetbreads to charred beets, mortadella, and cheese sizzling on a grill the size of an airstrip. That smoke underpins most of Peruvian chef Victor Albisu's phenomenal cooking at Del Campo, a grand South American restaurant in D. C.'s Chinatown."
— John Mariani, Esquire, The Best New Restaurants 2013

"While meat hogs the stage, the house specialties extend to a fabulous Peruvian-style chicken. Roasted garlic, paprika and cumin permeate each juicy bite; for extra richness, the chef slips duck fat beneath the skin. Every detail on the plate — the fluffy-centered yuca, the shocking green chili puree, the creamy aioli — is pitch perfect. The combination underscores Albisu’s knack for elevating the basics."
— Tom Sietsema, The Washington Post, June 5, 2013 (** 1/2, good)
