Local business owners and culinarians Oleg Vetkov and Gabriel Claycamp open Burnt Ends, a dynamic family restaurant, bar and catering company. Bringing years of culinary experience and a zeal for premium meats and produce, Vetkov and Claycamp are thrilled to contribute to the Lynden pallet and the community at large.
Burnt Ends’ menu is inspired by the flavors of wood-fire cooking. Smoking and grilling will be done in-house, including juicy brisket, seasoned ribs, barbecued chickens, seasonal veg and of course, brisket burnt ends. Originally taking cues from Texas-style barbecue, Vetkov and Claycamp have injected their own style and experience into the menu to create flavors that are familiar, yet new and unmatched.
“There’s something about the flavor of grilling and smoking on a camping trip,” says Vetkov, “and we want to replicate that – up to a certain point.” The tagline “fire flavor” is meant to be literal, and it extends beyond the meats – grilled cornbread, oysters, vegetables and more.
Claycamp has been involved in culinary, butchering and product sourcing for decades, and is beyond enthusiastic to apply his knowledge to this new venture. “The way we source, cook and serve food at Burnt Ends is important to us start to finish. Every step of the process is important to us, from flavor to experience.”
Burnt Ends officially launches their restaurant at 8082 Guide Meridian Road on August 6 and is currently available to cater events of all sizes. Visit eatburntends.com for event booking and more information.
