It turns out we’re not the only ones excited about the new Del Campo restaurant. First Lady Michelle Obama was in for lunch on Tuesday, according to a source, who said she was joined by one of the President’s sisters and the sister’s husband. 

Del Campo is the Pampas-inspired restaurant of chef/owner Victor Albisu. It features the cuisines of Peru, Argentina, and other Latin countries. Specialties include the asado boards, robust platters of grilled meats, fish, and vegetables. We were not able to learn what the Obama party ordered. 

Before opening Del Campo this year, Albisu was chef at BLT Steak. He also owns Taco Bamba, recently opened in Falls Church.
