by

This is the enthralling tale of one resourceful man overcoming his hunger by combining the contents of his refrigerator into sweet and sultry sustenance. This man is me.

Dawson’s

by

 I had the opportunity to hang out with Jason Poole, the executive chef of Dawson’s last week, and learned that his restaurant is anything but an industry cliché.

It all started when my boyfriend, Joe, and I took BuzzFeed’s “How Many ’90s Foods Have You Tried?” quiz—because it was clearly more important than actually being productive, okay? After a few high-fives, knee-slaps […]
