While other kids grew up watching Sesame Street, Chef Jason Santos grew up experimenting in his grandmother’s kitchen watching, and idolizing, Julia Child.

Following his success in Boston’s best kitchens, Santos competed on Season 7 of Fox-TV’s hit television show, Hell’s Kitchen. Santos’s larger-than-life personality and culinary expertise quickly secured him as a fan favorite and garnered the attention of one of the industry’s top critics, Chef Gordon Ramsay. His successful run on the show concluded with a runner-up finish and a newfound national recognition. Jason will be returning to Hell’s Kitchen as Chef Ramsay’s Sous Chef for the Blue Team for his fourth season.
Santos now divides his time as owner and executive chef at Nash Bar, a sleek, two-floor southern restaurant & country music venue that is in the heart of Boston’s Theater District; Buttermilk & Bourbon (Boston & Watertown), a New Orleans influenced restaurant with as much character and charm as the city itself; and at Citrus & Salt, a coastal Mexican restaurant in Boston’s Back Bay. His fifth restaurant, ButterBird, is slated to open summer 2023.
Santos is also a recurring guest on the Today Show, Live with Kelly & Ryan, CBS-TV’s The Talk, The Today Show, and subsequent seasons of Hell’s Kitchen. Santos also appears regularly on the popular Paramount TV hit show, Bar Rescue where he rehabilitates failing restaurants and bars as the chef-expert alongside Jon Taffer.
In March of 2019, Santos debuted his first cookbook, Buttermilk & Bourbon. Jason has just released his second cookbook titled Simple Fancy, which is available at bookstores across the nation and on Amazon.
Santos lives in Woburn with his wife Thuy and their daughter Teagan. Jason splits his time between running his restaurants, writing cookbooks, performing media appearances and attending culinary events.
