Best Chef

Jason Dady


Winner: Jason Dady

Multiple locations

If it came down to recent media exposure, there's little question which local chef reigns supreme. Jason Dady has graced the pages of Fine Cooking Magazine, displayed his gift for gab on the Today Show and bared knives on Food Network's Iron Chef Gauntlet. But camera appeal alone doesn't account for Dady's repeated BOSA wins. The James Beard Award nominee has done plenty to make fine food accessible to San Antonio. Part of it comes down to his prolific and diverse ventures, which span the gamut from Tre Trattoria's Italian fine dining and Range to the decidedly casual Two Bros BBQ Market and Shuck Shack. And at one point or another, he's planted a flag in nearly every part of the city, so whether you're looking for a meal on the Museum Reach, Lower Broadway or the North Side, chances are there's a Dady joint nearby.
