We're thrilled to announce we've redesigned our website and are excited to share it with you. While we had wonderful feedback around our old website, our business has expanded over the years to become much more dynamic. Our intention was to create an online space that mirrors the energy of the property today. We hope you love it as much as we do.
In addition to Social Hour between 4:00-6:00, Bar Campo serves creative food offerings on Monday and Tuesday evenings when only the bar is open. While our standard bar menu is available, we invite you to taste our chef-selected options exclusively available at the beginning of the week.
In previous weeks, dishes have ranged from fried chicken with green chile jam, house-made pickles and blue corn grits to wings poached in Los Poblanos hot sauce. And on the horizon are oysters on the half shell. These nights give our chefs time to show off their creativity and experiment with new ideas - and give you a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
Most of our kitchen and waitstaff have Monday and Tuesday nights off, so our mixologists hold court and run the show, offering their hospitality and wealth of cocktail knowledge. Grab a seat at the bar and enjoy the evening, but make sure to show up early - we don't take reservations so seats are first come, first served. Bar Campo is opens daily at 4:00.
THIS WEEK'S SPECIALS INCLUDE:
Spicy Prickly Pear Chicken Satay with pickled dragon tongue and fresh herbs
Turkey Roulade Sandwich with pickled blackberry jam, red chile aioli, shaved red onion and green leaf lettuce on a seeded roll, served with house frites

We are thrilled to announce that Campo made the Good Food 100 list! Good Food 100 is an annual list and economic report celebrating chefs and restaurants who are changing the food system for good by using their purchasing power to honor and support every link in the food chain.
Our passionate team of chefs are committed to crafting seasonal, organic, local meals that source ingredients from our own fields as well as local farmers and herdsmen. We are honored to be listed among other organizations that are equally dedicated to honoring every link in the food chain: the environment; plants and animals; farmers, ranchers and fisherman, purveyors, restaurants and eaters.
Check out the full Good Food 100 list here and meet us at Campo to celebrate!

We're so excited to share this Architectural Digest article that describes our recent expansion and renovation in partnership with our friends at Atkin Olshin Schade Architects.

Executive Director Matt Rembe says the renovation was all about "being respectful of the past while introducing new ideas and innovation.”

The recent addition of a full spirits license has allowed us to develop an exciting new bar program that pays homage to Los Poblanos agricultural roots and organic farming model. Sourcing from the surrounding fields and other local farms, cocktails at Campo feature a wide variety of fresh organic ingredients and small-batch barrel-aged spirits as well as house-made components including lavender simple syrup, bitters and amaros.
Perfect for warm days, we're enjoying the Campo Margarita, which incorporates our own lavender simple syrup, and the Lavender'99, garnished with lavender from our fields and is a salute to 1999, the year we first planted lavender.
