Chef Dean Fearing
Known for the “Elevated American Cuisine – Bold Flavors, No Borders” of his Dallas restaurant, Dean Fearing’s food philosophy is simple: “Cooking delicious food is simple when you combine fresh, local ingredients.”
Not one for glorified or complicated menus, Dean is inspired by tastes that show off the flavorful best of every ingredient. Whether a dish blends sweet with savory (a Fearing’s specialty), the sizzling aroma of Texas rib-eye cooked over live mesquite, the juiciness of newly-plucked Texas produce, or the ice-cold zing of a Dean’s Margarita — or whether Dean is creating his legendary tortilla soup, signature Southwestern barbecued shrimp tacos with tropical mango slaw, exquisitely prepared fresh seafood, or the all-American comfort of banana cream pie, he delivers what he promises: Bold Flavors, No Borders – and great-tasting food of the highest quality. The unique, unforgettable tastes of Fearing’s cuisine can be found nowhere else.
