Victor Albisu

Taco Bamba and Poca Madre, Washington, D.C.

Chef Victor Albisu is cooking with fire these days—literally. At Del Campo, his new South American–steakhouse, Albisu turns out exceptional grilled and herb-smoked meats inspired by his Peruvian heritage and finessed with contemporary American touches. Join us as he debuts his critically received, wine-friendly menu at the Beard House.
