You may not think of Eddie "Lucky" Campbell, barman extraordinaire and co-owner of swanky Uptown cocktail lounge Parliament, as much of a "food guy," but you’d be wrong. For years, Campbell has been using culinary-inspired techniques behind the bar, and now it looks as if he’s going to (finally) take those skills into the kitchen.
CultureMap Dallas reports that Campbell and his Parliament business partner Andrew Brimecome will bring a new deli-style concept to Lower Greenville called Knuckle Sandwich. The punchy name should be expected from a guy like Campbell, who’s known for his clever cocktail monikers. The concept will, of course, focus on sandwiches with an interesting twist – delivery right to your door.
"Long before I was a bartender, I was a pizza delivery person and a bicycle messenger for eight years in Washington, D.C.," Campbell told CultureMap. "I know that industry. We want to do delivery, and sandwiches are perfect for that." Co-owner Andrew Brimecome promises that the sandwiches will be the best in Dallas.
Campbell will also spearhead a sophisticated bar program within the confines of Knuckle Sandwich, which means that you’ll be able to order up a killer Old Fashioned with your deli-style sandwich. The only real unfortunate thing is that you won’t be able to order up one of Campbell’s boozy creations for home delivery.
The concept will take over the space formerly occupied by The Vagabond, and plans to open in the coming months.
