A shrimp taco designed by one of the creators of Southwest cuisine. | Courtney E. Smith Revisiting a fine dining institution in Dallas It feels like it’s always splurge season in Dallas, so on a quiet Sunday evening during the tropical pre-spring season I popped into Fearing’s at the Ritz-Carlton to have the tasting menu created by chef Dean Fearing. Okay, I didn’t actually pop in — I made a reservation. But I could have because the dining room was more than half empty and, other than myself, seemed to be mostly servicing hotel customers.

Courtney E. Smith A look into the mission of this Black-owned incubator in South Arlington Down in South Arlington, right on the road that denotes the city line into Mansfield, the team at Kitchen Combine opened in January with a plan to do something that the nearby community can invest in.

The stunning prime rib cart at Landmark. | Landmark Prime Rib Let’s make steak nostalgic again It’s the first thing you see when you walk into the renovated dining room of the Landmark Prime Rib in the Warwick Melrose Hotel on Oak Lawn, right in the heart of Cedar Springs: a carving cart from the 1940s that has been refurbished. It has a curvy body, a complicated-looking silver lid, and a wood-lined body.

He’s intent on making a connection but not through charm or conversation; he only issues vague quips and inspirational platitudes, going in-depth when asked about how he ..read more
