OUR PICK: Jason Dady, @chefjasondady,

Things are only looking up for chef Jason Dady, owner of six restaurants with more on the way. Even as the face of the Jason Dady Restaurant Group, and “menu writer” for Tre Enoteca, Tre Trattoria, Two Bros. BBQ Market, DUK Truck, Shuck Shack and The Bin, Dady spends a lot of time on the road, spreading the gospel of San Antonio’s culinary growth. He’s participating in the Austin Food + Wine Festival, and Austin’s Hot Luck (a three-day food and music festival) – oh, and he’s participating in this year’s Iron Chef Gauntlet reboot on the Food Network. Dady grooms young talent, encourages competition and serves as one of San Antonio’s biggest advocates around, and that makes him this year’s best chef.
