MEET THE CHEF
JASON SANTOS / OWNER / CHEF
Jason Santos developed a passion for cooking before his ninth birthday. While other kids were watching Sesame Street, he grew up experimenting in his grandmother's kitchen while watching Julia Child, the world's original TV chef.
By age 19, he was a graduate of Newbury College's culinary arts program, in Newton, Mass. He cut his teeth at Andy Husbands' Tremont 647 and rose through the ranks to executive chef. After 6 years honing his personal style there, he joined Gargoyles on the Square as executive chef in 2005. There, his cuisine transformed the restaurant from neighborhood stalwart to out-of-town destination dining hotspot.
His fusion of new techniques and exotic ingredients into bistro fare earned plaudits from several Boston publications, including The Boston Globe, where he landed the cover of the Food Section.
