Don’t Miss:  The cuisine at Dawson’s is prepared using the freshest ingredients and unexpected twists on modern American classics.  Indulge in signature dishes like the Bone-in Rib-eye, Seafood Cioppino and Lobster Mac and Cheese. And don’t end the evening without a slice of Vo’s Famous Carrot Cake. Chef Jason Poole and his team are continually perfecting their techniques so that your dining experience is a memorable one. Reservations are recommended.

Partnering with the best wineries in northern California, on the third Wednesday of each month Chef Jason will prepare a regionally inspired four-course meal paired with wine. Dawson’s Wine Dinner seating is very limited and the experience is customized with one-on-one contact with the Chef and the Winemaker.
