Oak and Campo Team Announce Bowery: A New Concept In The Old Lumi Space

Categories: Food News

Richard and Tiffanee Ellman (the people behind Oak) and John Paul Valverde (one of the people behind Campo) started teasing a few weeks ago that they have made a move on the old Lumi space on McKinney Avenue. This morning they announced the name and some details about the concept. Bowery will be a fresh perspective on fast-casual dining and should open next week.

Their website
offers little more than a logo, but the news release has some details about Uptown's newest concept, which centers on hot dogs. That's right: franks. Bowery takes the quintessential American favorite, dignifies the ingredients, modernizes the presentation and brings forth innovative and exciting renditions of the hot dog, according to the news release. Hot dogs just got haute.

Chicago dogs, "Korn" Dogs, something called the Dutchman and a Royal Wagyu hot dog will grace the menu rounded out with beer and cocktail pairings served in a space designed by Coeval: Valverde's design group, which is also responsible for Campo and Hacienda San Miguel.

This is the second hot-dog-centric concept to land on McKinney. Earlier this year The Stand opened up with a fast casual take on ballpark food. They'll be open 11 a.m. -11 p.m. Sunday to Wednesday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

I have to agree with DisgustedFoodie on this one. I don't know what Campos future will be....What I can say is people in  Dallas don't want to eat bone marrow....just not that adventurous in Big D.. That is probably why the Campo people are taking what Frank's did in ATX and trying to do it up here...simple approachable food with a "twist"..similar to these fried chicken and hamburger places sprouting up with their "twists" on approachable food....

Back to the subject at hand, I hope this Bowery place works out, beer and hotdog sounds great to me.  I drove around there the other day and looks like they will have some outside deck seating, I’ll be there.   Anyone know when are they opening?  Is it next week?

Talk for your self DisgustedFoodie, I think the Campo design is very cool, out of the ordinary and fits the space, plus the new chef is awesome. Looks to me like you are lacking design knowledge; you should stay around the foodie themes and stay away from design opinions.  If you reed this article it mentions clearly the designers of Campo are doing Bowery.  I think they will do a good job.

hmm....gotta love dallas...rip off concepts from every other cool city and bring it here to act like it is new...I guess Bowery should thank Franks in ATX for the idea of a concept "centered" on hot dogs...

I hope the Oak team designed Bowery. The Campo people tout themselves as designers but they must be hacks. The design at Campo is horrible. Not only is the design bad, it is executed poorly as well. The chairs are horribly uncomfortable and don't even look at the fabric cushions on the walls - pucker, pucker, pucker. Seriously, go to Campo and look at the place. Matt M was the only saving grace there and now that he's gone I'm afraid Campo will not hang around much longer.

  You might be correct on the “just not that adventurous in Big D” but at least we have a place that serves that level of food.  I only hope the Campo people make it work because I do like it.  But I completely disagree with the comment on the design part, I studied Art and Design and you can’t compare Campo and Oak, they are 2 completely different concepts. On the hotdog part I guess theirs not really any “NEW” ideas out there any more.  Every time a new burger place opens is basically taking ideas from others and I guest making it a bit different and hopefully making it better for us.
