    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]

    Try the Halibut on Lobster - Was good with the crispy crab, clams and Southwest spices. See http://is.gd/irDCcE

    He was great at the Mansion. Now he's at the Ritz. Might be the best restaurant in Texas.

    Try the Buffalo Filet with smoked maple sauce with Dean's famous Tortilla Soup or the Southwest Halibut on lobster with crispy clams.

    It's not just the best meal, but the best experience to boot!! Say "hi" to Dean.

    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.

    The setting of Fearing's — locked in the Ritz Carlton, honed by the Johnson studio of Atlanta into a set of distinct design chapters in the Fearing's drama — is critical to the experience. Read more

    Try hard to resist maxing out your credit cards on these ultra-rare, $1,800-a-pound Italian truffles.

    Amazing eating experience. Ask Paul (sommelier) for wine recommendations and for additions not on the list-- he has incredible taste!

    If there's one thing that’s bigger in Texas, it’s the flavor Chef Dean Fearing brings to the table. He's a graduate of the world's premier culinary college!

    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.

    Decent cuisine but I specifically requested not to be seated in the kitchen...needless to say I had front row seats to the kitchen, I know they read the request b/c they wished us a happy anniversary
