The Restaurateur


When one restaurant wasn’t enough to hold all of his ideas, Chef Dady opened a second in 2004, taking him beyond the role of executive chef to one of restaurant owner and chief collaborator. The proud Texan then applied his family-man values to develop a tight-knit bond with members of his team, co-helmed with his brother Jake, and his wife Crystal. Jason Dady Restaurants reflects his unique style, embracing Texas pit-smoked meats, Tuscan fare, Spanish twists, and gourmet comfort food in a family-friendly setting.

For nearly two decades, the Dady team has redefined the San Antonio culinary culture, and is often credited with kick-starting the city’s chef-driven restaurant movement. He continues to mentor other chefs, and encourages entrepreneurs to explore their wild ideas in the name of innovation and fresh dining experiences.
