Fearing's, Dallas, Texas

Address: 2121 Mckinney Avenue

Tel: 214-922-4848

Dean Fearing made a name for himself as the chef who dared to put tacos on the menu at the prim Mansion on Turtle Creek. At Fearing's eponymous restaurant at the new Ritz-Carlton , the barbecued shrimp tacos—made with mom-and-pop-shop Luna's tortillas—are still offered, but the formal atmosphere has been replaced by a sort of cowboy chic: dark- and honey-hued wood, glowing onyx, Rosenthal bone china, and rawhide chandeliers. The place is massive, with six separate rooms, including a "proper" dining area, favored by the ladies who lunch, and the kitchenside nook, where jeans (designer, of course) are the norm and the chef can be found chatting up patrons in his signature boots. Order the top-shelf margarita and the Oklahoma buffalo, marinated in maple syrup and served with jalapeño grits and a butternut squash taquito (entrées, $32–$50).
