Time Out says
Treat yourself to some fine dining with the “Father of Southwestern Cuisine,” Dean Fearing. The larger-than-life celebrity chef specializes in hearty traditional food with a twist—and his self-titled restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel is one of the must-visit establishments in Dallas. Loosen your belt and prepare for a serious treat, with highlights including Dr Pepper-braised ribs, Comanche Buffalo cheesesteak and chicken-fried quail. If you can keep your eyes off your plate for a few seconds, you’ll also enjoy some of the best celebrity-spotting in Texas (including Fearing himself occasionally playing electric guitar).
