: Dallas has long had a love affair with celeb chef Dean Fearing-- whose modern take on Southwestern cuisine has earned him numerous accolades over the years, including a James Beard Award for best chef of the Southwest. Here at his namesake restaurant in the swanky Ritz Carlton, Fearing and his chef de cuisine Eric Dreyer turn out hits like wood grilled pork tenderloin glazed with sorghum, mesquite grilled salmon with peach barbecue glaze, and of course, Fearing's signature tortilla soup. The dining experience is all the more enhanced by the restaurant's seven distinctive indoor and outdoor settings-- including a formal room with chandeliers and soaring eighteen-foot ceilings; an intimate wine cellar; and a romantic glass pavilion. If you plan it right, you can snag a seat in Dean's Kitchen where you can have a ringside view of the action and perhaps a chat with the exuberant Fearing himself.
