Profile

The Oak Cliff bungalow-turned-bar is owned by John Paul Valverde and Miguel Vicéns in the former CampO Modern Country Bistro space. The revamped result is a cross between a low-lit, chilled-out gastropub and the kind of locals-only watering hole you might find in some small factory town in upstate New York. The interior decor is rustic: custom-made wooden everything, long mirrors, and a sprinkling of mounted animal skulls. But best of all is the diverse crowd. If you’re thirsty, sample anything from the cocktail menu. We like the Improved 60/40, an understated, dolled-up alcoholic iced tea, and Nil’s Cosmo with Belvedere Pomarancza, lemon juice, lime juice, and cranberry juice. If you’re hungry, go for the grilled cheese with Fontina, Gruyere, and cheddar, with arugula and fig jam on a robust sourdough bread. You won’t be sorry.
