Outpost American Tavern, the new concept from the partners behind Campo, quietly opened its doors this weekend on Beckley Avenue in Oak Cliff. Despite occupying the same old house-turned-restaurant, Outpost bears little resemblance to its predecessor: Gone are the bright white walls and airy feel of Campo, replaced by plenty of rustic wood and a darker, more cozy atmosphere, plus a patio outfitted with picnic tables. (Owners John Paul Valverde and Miguel Vicens also run design firm Coeval Studio and are responsible for the interiors of The Bowery, the freshly made-over Sunset Lounge, and Fort Worth's Hacienda San Miguel, amongst others.)
The menu offers even less similarities to CampO's: No offal-stuffed handmade pastas like the ones served at the chef-driven Campo—instead the focus is on more familiar comfort dishes like elotes, short ribs, fish tacos, and sandwiches, plus a bar program featuring classic cocktails and craft beers.
