 About Chef Jason Dady
Since 2001, Texas native Jason Dady has aimed to raise the bar of dining in San Antonio, Tex, to match the other elements of what the top tourist destination has to offer.He works beyond the role of restaurant owner to create a tight-knit bond with his team and the local community with Jason Dady Restaurants. His accolades include: “Best Chef San Antonio” by San Antonio Current and San Antonio Magazine, “40 Under 40 Rising Star” in the San Antonio Business Journal, a Star-chef’s Rising Star Restauranter Award, Culturemap’s 2016 Tastemaker Award for “Chef of the Year,” and he has been honored as a James Beard Semi Finalist.
Dady opened the Lodge Restaurant of Castle Hills in 2001, featuring one of the city’s first tasting menus, followed by the modern American cuisine at Bin 555 Restaurant and Wine Bar in 2004. He then refocused on returning his affinity for fine Italian cuisine, with the launch of the Trattoria – now his flagship – in 2007, initiating the movement for restaurants in San Antonio to create handmade pasta. His current concepts include the Northern Italian, Tre Enoteca (2015); an award-winning family-friendly Texas pit ‘cue Two Bros BBQ Market(2008); And B&D Ice House (2014); along with Duk Truck, a mobile kitchen.
Dady introduced the coastal seafood-centric Shuck Shack in July 2015, a sport where thoughtfully approachable food and family fun collide. Next up for Dady is Range, a modern American chophouse on the San Antonio riverwalk, salted for Autumn 2017.
