Chef Isaac Jones
Chef Isaac Jones was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He started to work in the restaurant industry as a busboy at 15 years old and later worked his way up into the kitchen under the tutelage of his father who was an Executive Chef at a busy full-service downtown hotel in Chicago. He later moved to Minnesota where he lives today with his wife and three daughters. He has worked in various hotels running his culinary team with the same passion that was bestowed upon him back as a youth. He opened his own restaurant Isaac’s Café in Maplewood, MN where he continued to showcase cooking from scratch and sourcing local and organic ingredients. Today Chef Isaac Jones is the Executive Chef at the DoubleTree by Hilton St. Paul East and oversees McKnight’s Kitchen & Tap. He works with his team on putting passion behind his product with the mentality that fresh, local and organic are the best method for creating a unique experience. Chef Jones uses the same fundamentals that William McKnight lived by encouraging his team to share initiatives and innovation in the kitchen that will provide an award winning experience for our guests.
