Anthony Jones

Executive Chef


A native of Sunderland, MD, Anthony Jones has returned home to helm the kitchen of Dirty Habit DC as Executive Chef.

Jones discovered his passion for cooking at a young age, inspired to pursue a culinary career after falling in love with episodes of the original Iron Chef; little did he know that he would one day find himself on the other side ofthe screen. In 2022, Jones brought home first place on an episode of Food Network’s Chopped, joining the ranks of fellow top toques as a Chopped Champion. Jones is no stranger to working among some of the best in the culinary landscape – most recently, he worked as Marcus Samuelsson’s right-hand man as Executive Sous Chef at Red Rooster Overton in Miami, which was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2019. Prior to his Florida move, Jones worked at several DMV-area restaurants, including BLT Steak, Birch & Barley and The Sovereign.

Jones attended Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC, where he received his associate degree in applied science culinary arts. Along with his Chopped victory and Michelin accolade, Jones was also honored as a guest chef at the Worlds of Flavor Event in Napa Valley in 2022 and was a participating chef in the Diaspora Kitchen Tour in Cameroon, Africa, in 2023 alongside other acclaimed Black chefs such as Chef Mashama Bailey and Chef BJ Dennis.

When Jones is not crafting his latest dish at Dirty Habit, he enjoys outdoor activities and cooking with his partner, Max. Along with their friends, they channel their competitive sides over frequent card games and video games.
