MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

On cold nights, gathering around one of the fireplaces at this River West favorite hits all the right notes. The Dawson has everything you can ask for in a gastropub—a convivial vibe, clever bites and wraparound bar pouring stirring libations. Speaking of which, the Surfer Rosa with tequila, blood orange, and chilies, attracts spirited guests like moths to a flame. A communal table and open kitchen with counter offer multiple opportunities for meeting, greeting, and eating.When hunger strikes, get nibbling on chicken fried lobster with spicy ranch or roasted cauliflower with a boldly spiced masala. Lest you forget, seared duck breast and sausage with Oaxacan mole is great for sharing; while a Bourbon caramel blondie sundae is the stuff of dessert dreams.
