Burwell’s Celebrates Birthday With a Steak Boast

Another local restaurant is turning one, and it’s celebrating by crunching numbers.

According to a release from Burwell’s, the downtown restaurant overcooked just 12 steaks out of every 30,000 it served over the past year. “That’s a solid standard,” the release says. (Presumably, that number reflects the judgment of the kitchen, not its customers: If only a dozen out of every 30,000 customers complain, Burwell’s has assembled the friendliest group of eaters ever to grace a dining room.)

As for the temperatures the kitchen was trying to achieve, “80 percent (of steaks) were ordered either medium or medium rare,” the release reports.

No word on whether any steaks were sent back for undercooking.
