New England’s Finest Sporting Club Announces Partnership with World-Renowned Chef David Burke

RICHMOND, R.I., Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Preserve Sporting Club & Residences announced today its latest partnership, a 15-year agreement with internationally acclaimed chef and restaurateur, David Burke. Chef Burke will oversee all culinary operations at The Preserve through restaurant operating and consultant company, David Burke Hospitality Management (DBHM). The centerpiece of the partnership will be the transformation of The Preserve’s main restaurant, Double Barrel Kitchen. Open to the public, guests and members of The Preserve Sporting Club, the sprawling 7,000 square-foot, 350-seat reimagined restaurant will debut Wednesday, March 1, as Double Barrel Steak by Chef David Burke.

Considered a leading pioneer in American cooking, Burke will fashion a menu for Double Barrel Steak that showcases modern American steakhouse-inspired cuisine. The menu will feature beef dry aged on-site via Burke’s Patent US 7,998,517 B2 Himalayan salt process. As a nod to Rhode Island’s “Ocean State” moniker, the restaurant will offer what Burke calls “ocean steaks,” including swordfish, halibut and tuna. The variety of entrées and resurrection of Burke’s famous swordfish chops – a global sensation when introduced at New York City’s Park Avenue Café in the early 1990’s – will dub Double Barrel Steak a seafood restaurant and steakhouse. In homage to The Preserve’s outdoor experiences, game will also play a seasonal role on the menu.

“The Preserve is honored to welcome David Burke and his team, there is no greater compliment than chef Burke’s willingness to lead our culinary programs,” stated Mihailides. “We look forward to welcoming our members and guests of The Preserve to enjoy the renowned stylings of chef Burke.”

As part of the rebrand, the new Double Barrel Steak will incorporate décor hallmarks of David Burke restaurants and a redefined bar program. The décor highlights will include a curated selection of original artwork with a wildlife and horse theme as well as a Himalayan salt wall. The bar program will be expanded to include taste-tempting signature cocktails and a bar menu of captivating comestibles. All presented alongside The Preserve’s extensive wine list.

“The Preserve is an intriguing new partnership for us, because, in addition to Double Barrel Steak, we’ll be in charge of two of the most extraordinary private dining venues I have ever seen,” said Burke. “The Maker’s Mark HOBBIT HOUSESTM an enchanting space where a memorable meal becomes a once-in-a-lifetime bourbon-infused experience. And the Cohiba & Laphroaig Safari Tasting Tent, highlighting a scotch and cigar pairing with intriguing finger food. Another bonus of the partnership is my longstanding relationship with Chairman of The Preserve, Paul Mihailides. I am looking forward to working with him to further enhance The Preserve’s status as a world-class sporting club.”
