Josh Black Named CampO Exec

by Crave Staff

Chef Josh Black has been named executive chef at CampO Modern Country Bistro. Black, whose culinary experience includes The Cedar Social and Stephan Pyles is a graduate of Le Cordon Blue.

“Josh has been an essential part of the development team,” says John Paul Valverde, co-owner of CampO and Coevál Studio. “Our menu is always evolving to focus on the freshest ingredients available and Josh’s attention to detail is reflected throughout the CampO menu.”           

Black opened with CampO in November 2011 as sous chef and has been involved in developing the menu along with consulting chef Matt McCallister, who will continue to advise on the CampO concept as needed.

CampO A.M. is set to open early March with a full weekend brunch menu and will launch a series of monthly dinners showcasing a guest chef.

We are sad to see that Josh shaved off his incredible mustache. It was one of the best in the city.

  1. kudos to josh – well deserved. Josh has been there since before the beginning and anyone who thinks Campo (or any kitchen) is a one man operation doesn’t know how a kitchen works!

    Pyles, Fearing, Rathbun – the heavy hitters are able to present their ideas and philosophies via a team. We expect Matt can do the same.
