In Spanish, Del Campo means "from the countryside". In DC-ish, it means "a beautiful Penn Quarter tribute to Argentinian grilled meats, all served in an elegantly rustic space outfitted with smoked-oak floors, leather sling-back barstools, and hand-woven table runners. You should go get some wagyu sirloin there right now". Loosely translated

This Chivito sandwich layers said sirloin with ham, mortadella, provolone, and fried egg. This is what they call, in Buenos Aires, "the vegetarian option"

Provoleta's their country's go-to version of Provolone. It's been served in Argentina for about 40yrs, and here is griddled with herb salad, chilies, and country bread

You'll need to start training about three days in advance if you plan on facing off with this 48oz dry-aged Piedmont Ridge ribeye topped with chimichurri. Okay, it's actually for two, but by now, you're committed

Watch yourself looking swank in an oversized antique mirror above the bar as you ponder 16 cocktails, like the Papa Porteño with rum, bitters, and even (appropriately) grilled grapefruit, which ought to help get you as loose as even the most ridiculous translation

Using a wood-fired grill is one way to cook a steak, and at Del Campo, that smoke helps add another level of flavor to the meat. This upscale Argentinian restaurant in Chinatown is a beautiful tribute to Argentinian grilled meats, all served in an elegantly rustic space outfitted with oak wood floors and leather sling-back barstools- perfect for enjoying the 48oz ribeye on the menu.
