Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Latin Heritage, 7:00 P.M.
Victor Albisu, Del Campo, Washington, D.C.
Before his return to the Beard House, chef Victor Albisu traveled through Chile, Argentina, and Cuba to find inspiration for this event’s menu, which will also highlight the irresistible grilled and smoked meats that are on offer at his ode to the South American asado, Del Campo. Expect Latin-inspired bites such as Smoked Salmon–Roe Tostones with Charred Lemon Crème Fraîche; Empanadas with Black Lamb Ropa Vieja and Romesco; and Fluke with Lobster, Uni, Smoked Oyster Crema, and Burnt Chiles.
