Jason Dady is one of the chefs competing in Food Network's "Iron Chef Gauntlet."

Since 2001, Texas native Chef Jason Dady has had a vision to raise the bar of dining in his hometown San Antonio. His efforts have not gone unnoticed: he has earned the title of "Best Chef San Antonio" by San Antonio Current and San Antonio Magazine, been honored as a James Beard semifinalist, and has received other recognitions including a "40 Under 40 Rising Star" in the San Antonio Business Journal and a StarChefs.com Rising Stars Restaurateur Award.

Additionally, his signature barbeque is listed as one of "Top 50 in the World" by Texas Monthly, and Dady recently earned CultureMap's Tastemaker Award for "Chef of the Year" in 2016. He currently helms Jason Dady Restaurants, alongside his brother Jake and wife Crystal. Dady first appeared on the restaurant scene in 2001 with The Lodge Restaurant of Castle Hills, featuring one of the city's first tasting menus, followed up by the modern American cuisine at BIN 555 Restaurant & Wine Bar in 2004. He then refocused on returning to the cuisine where his roots are, fine Italian, with the launch of Tre Trattoria â€" now his flagship â€" in 2007, creating handmade pasta, along with distinctive flavor combinations in authentic entrées.

His current concepts include the Northern Italian-focused Tre Enoteca (2015); the family-friendly Texas pit 'cue at the award-winning Two Bros BBQ Market (2008); the modest, saloon-styled B&D Ice House (2014); and The Bin (2016), a classic Barcelona Spanish tapas bar; along with DUK Truck, a mobile kitchen for offsite catering that can also be found on occasion cruising the streets of San Antonio. Dady introduced the coastal seafood experience of Shuck Shack in July 2015 and the opening of a second Two Bros BBQ Market is planned for 2017.
