Raymond Dial

Years of Participation

Executive Chef, Raymond Dial, returns to Charleston bringing 16 years of culinary experience to Burwell’s Steakhouse. After his time at Johnson and Wales in Charleston, Dial began his impressive career in Tucson, AZ as the Executive Chef for Sullivan’s Steakhouse.

Always wanting to push the possibilities of what a steakhouse could offer, Dial traveled the country looking for inspiration to bring back to Sullivan’s Steakhouse in cities such as: Anchorage, AK, Omaha, NE, and Chicago. Dial eagerly learned everything he could from ingredients used in these locations, to the farming techniques and local products, so he could add his own creative twist to transform traditional dishes using simple flavors.

His talents caught the eyes of the owners of a new concept in Pittsburg, PA named Eddie Merlot’s Steakhouse. However his heart was still in Charleston and after three years overseeing the success of Eddie Merlot’s Steakhouse, Dial moved back in 2016.

When asked what he is bringing to Burwell’s Steakhouse, Dial replies: ”I want to create genuine experiences that make the guest feel the passion for food that I and my amazing kitchen team have, and take away something from their night out that they wont easily forget".

Dial embraces a “modern steakhouse” philosophy with a menu of diverse, yet simple and refined, signature steak dishes that includes: A5 Kobe Beef Ribeye- Miyazaki Prefecture, a Wagyu Outside Skirt Steak with a side of Herb & Aged Parmesan Fries, and Wood Fired Filet Mignon with Broccolini and Farm Egg with assorted sauces.
