Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.
"Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. started with the hopes of achieving a dream: owning and operating a successful restaurant that serves the food we know and love to a community we know and love -- that's you, D.C.!
We were all born and raised in Maryland and brought up in the Southern tradition, so Mason Dixie is a symbol of our past, present and future. We remember eating comforting Southern meals with our families and loving every minute: from cooking, to setting the table, to eating, to watching the day turn into night without feeling a minute pass, preoccupied with friends, family, and full bellies. We miss that slow pace of life that accompanied biscuits and fried chicken on the dinner table.
Today, we look to recreate that moment in time for you, using the skills and knowledge we've gained throughout our professional careers. We hope to be that iconic place to which people who frequent our restaurant today will take their children tomorrow, and one day even their grandchildren."
Jason Gehring, executive chef
Jason is our secret weapon...okay, maybe not so secret. He's a RAMMY-nominated Pastry Chef of the Year who's excelled in the DC culinary scene for years. As opening chef for Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, he brings a wealth of experience in pastry+savory and fresh, casual restaurant operations. You can find him covered in tattoos and flour on any given day.
Mo Cherry, managing chef
Meet Mo, also known as our"Super Taster." He has one heckuva palate that's shaped our creative flavor pairings, stemming from his years as a chef and sommelier. Ask him about pairing wine with anything--he always has the best suggestions!
