Opened on October 25th 2013, The Dawson is a new partnership between local restaurateurs Billy Lawless (The Gage, Henri) and Branko Palikuca (Topaz, Amber) featuring cuisine by executive chef Patrick Russ (Next, Zealous). Celebrating the spirit of late 19th century Chicago, this casual neighborhood hangout features an energetic series of bi-level indoor and outdoor spaces. The Dawson is quintessentially American, from the familiar comfort food and classic cocktails with a twist to the nostalgic, versatile design and atmosphere.<br /><br />

"Being fans of Gage & Henri, we had high expectations for dinner for 4 at The Dawson. Building has a wonderful, simple, historic ambience. Cocktail list was interesting, our server guided us through it. All had a different cocktail, equally yummy. Loved the Manhattan. Charcuterie and onion rings to start. The liver pate & onion rings were amazing. We ordered the ravioli, pork shank, and scallops for main course. We shared and devoured it all. Chocolate tart for dessert. Wanted to lick plate. Hospitality rules here..all were gracious. Prices- very reasonable. Owner and the manager stopped at our table to be sure we were satisfied. Looking forward to enjoying the amazing food and beverages in the outside space as soon as it stops snowing!!"
