    We’d like to thank chef Dean Fearing’s grandma for her delicious “paper bag shook” fried chicken, which is served only at Sunday brunch at her grandson’s restaurant in The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas.

    Dean Fearing's eponymous bastion of fancified Southern cuisine is (very politely, very gently) slap-yo-mama good. [Eater 38 Member]

    Lovely restaurant. Buffalo tenderloin is the best, but start with the tortilla soup. Extensive wine list. Relax, enjoy the food and good wine. Doesn't get much better than this in the big D.

    Go here on a Sunday. It won't be much in terms of atmosphere, but you'll get the advantage of Bored/Lonely Chef Syndrome...and the amuse-bouches won't stop coming.
