Burnt Ends Hospitality Group is a company that has restaurants in Singapore and internationally, under founding chef and owner Dave Pynt.
All our restaurants focus on wood fire cooking, offering a relaxed atmosphere where guests can dine with friends or family to enjoy thoughtfully prepared, tasty food made with the best available produce.
Our first restaurant is the acclaimed one-star Michelin restaurant Burnt Ends. A modern wood fire restaurant in Singapore’s Dempsey neighborhood, serving modern barbecue and drink list comprised of boutique wines and artisanal spirits in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
At the heart of this restaurant is an open-concept kitchen with counter dining surrounding a custom four-tonne dual cavity oven and four elevation grills. Burnt Ends writes their menus daily and believes that there is magic that comes from cooking with wood. Adjacent to Burnt Ends restaurant in the historic barracks are Burnt Ends Bakery Bakery, Bar & Lounge.
Our leisure brand, The Ledge by Dave Pynt, brings Burnt Ends’ much-loved style of modern barbecue to the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi in partnership with Hilton Hotels & Resorts. We currently own and operate two Meatsmith restaurants across Singapore and Meatsmith Steakhouse in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Next on our international restaurant brand development, we have our upscale experience, Meatsmith Steakhouse, where we fire up our elevated wood fire grills, smokers, and quality in-house aged meats.
