The Art of Being Dallas

BY ROBBIE BRIGGS

N

ot long ago, I sat next to a rather talkative businessman on a long flight. When I mentioned that I was from Dallas, his eyes lit up. “Is it true what they say about North Texas?” he asked. He said he’d read story after story about companies moving to our area, about the strong economy and all of our population and job growth. It was an easy discussion, because all those things are indeed happening. But there is so much more to be excited 18

about, I told him. When you read articles trumpeting our current position among U.S. cities, one thing seems to stand out: Dallas is one of the top venues for the arts. (It’s also the hometown of actors Owen Wilson and Angie Harmon, comedian Jeff Dunham and singer Erykah Badu, all of who know a thing or two about performing.) On any given day or night, you’ll find world-class drama, comedy and other stage productions; thrilling symphonies; sizzling dance performances, from the finest ballets to mind-bending contemporary works; and the best in jazz, rock, country and more — all under the lights in some of the world’s most celebrated venues. Leading the pack is the 68acre Dallas Arts District, home to

The 5.2-acre urban green space known as Klyde Warren Park opened in 2012, constructed over a section the Woodall Rodgers Freeway. It connects to Dallas’ prosperous Arts District and serves as a downtown public congregation point.

Just 30 minutes from Dallas, Fort Worth’s Bass Performance Hall is an equally stunning facility, staging top-tier productions of all sorts. It’s also home to The Cliburn, the internationally renowned piano competition. Over the next few months,

What’s not to love? The Dallas Arts District is bordered by the impressive Klyde Warren Park, a lively 5-acre deck park which doubles as a spectacular outdoor performance venue, ringed with mid-rise and high-rise living spaces dotted across a glittering skyline. The Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Crow Collection of Asian Art and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science all offer extraordinary experiences in the district, just a short and enjoyable walk from one another. For thousands of downtown residents, their

dwellings enjoy views and access to many of these destinations— and for those who live outside of downtown, these cultural offerings are always available via the area’s easy-to-access transportation thoroughfares. So, how to spend time in Dallas? Ah, let me count the ways!

Super sizzling cocktails alone won’t cut the wind chill on cold winter nights in Big D. We found 11 memorable fireplaces and fire pits just right for keeping things cozy.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful But the fire is so delightful And since we’ve no place to go Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

“Let It Snow!” by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne was written in Hollywood, California in July 1945 during a heat wave as they imagined cooler conditions. I can relate, as I had the inspiration for this article during a Dallas heat wave a few months ago. We don’t see much snow around these parts, but that won’t stop North Texans from enjoying the romantic ambiance of a roaring fire. 34

Around October, when temperatures start to drop, patios become packed with diners taking in the glorious cooler temperatures. By cooler temps, I mean anything below 65 degrees. There is something super sexy and romantic about a fire that adds ambiance to any dining event. Whether you are clanking beer steins in celebration of your team winning a game or locking eyes with a possible love interest over a steak dinner, a fire can elevate the mood and adds a little joie de vivre to any occasion. Here are a few of my favorite hot spots in the Dallas area.

Whiskey Cake

From hanging swivel chairs, spacious benches and cozy booths right by the fire, the fireplace at Whiskey Cake appeals to all types of diners and provides a great space to enjoy their extensive Whiskey Library with over 350 selections of whiskey. Don’t miss their social hour that features $5 old fashioneds, $2 off craft cocktails, and $2 off draft beers every Monday–Friday 3–6 p.m. and 9–11 p.m. Fireplace seating is first come, first serve. 3601 Dallas Pkwy, Plano / 972-993-2253 / whiskey-cake.com

III Forks Steakhouse

Several fireplaces can be found when exploring the private and intimate dining spaces at III Forks, one of Dallas’ most lauded steakhouses. You can reserve fireplace seating at any time at this restaurant, and it’s worth it for the romance. While you can always enjoy a selection from III Forks Wine Spectator-recognized wine list while watching the flames flicker, you might instead try one of the restaurant’s classic cocktails featuring a carefully curated collection of craft spirits. 17776 Dallas Parkway / 972.267.1776 / 3forks.com

The Rustic

Located in Uptown, The Rustic’s outdoor space offers several small fireplaces for guests to cozy up around. As the weather drops, friends are encouraged to gather around one of the fireplaces and enjoy a live music performance—happening at The Rustic seven days a week. Starting in mid-November, The Rustic will be offering a special winter drink selection, consisting of boozy concoctions like Grilled Hot Toddies, RumChata Hot Chocolate, Bourbon Minted Tea and Maple & Coffee Ice Cream Melt. 3656 Howell St / 214.730.0596 / therustic.com

It’s the perfect winter destination to wrap up in a blanket and enjoy an afternoon glass of wine or an intimate evening of cocktails under the stars.

The second level is anchored by a distinctive “Blue Bar,” which leads outside to a large, open-air terrace. Guests can request seating around or near fireplaces. They do try to honor all requests, but may not be able to based on business volume.

The Dakota’s experience begins in the elevator—customers ride down to Dakota’s unique underground location in a canopied glass elevator, accessed from street level, that overlooks the 1,800-square-foot subterranean courtyard.

THE OF SOUTHWEST

CUISINE

Sometime over the last couple of decades, Dallas blew up into one of the nation’s more active culinary centers. Most food critics would agree that’s due, in considerable part, to the enormous influence of chef DEAN FEARING. His story is Lone Star legendary, and continues to gain steam with each passing year.

BY PETE NORTHWAY AND DAVID MUSCARI PHOTOGRAPHS BY DAVID WOO


ew in culinary circles can rival the longevity and success enjoyed by 62-year-old chef Dean Fearing. For two decades, he was the ebullient executive chef at the luxurious Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, where his reputation grew into national proportions. It was there that the great southwestern chef gained substantial notoriety before leaving in 2007 to start his own restaurant. Bringing Fearing’s to The Ritz-Carlton on Dallas’ sporty McKinney Avenue has contributed to transforming the area into one of region’s busiest social crossroads. For his part, Fearing, in his powerful pole position as the most noteworthy figure in the ascendance of Southwest cuisine, remains steady as a rock. Even for a man who needs little introduction, Fearing seems to always be adding to his impressive list of credentials, including being a recent recipient of the prestigious Pioneer of American Cuisine Award, presented by the Culinary Institute of America.

sion, the menu that met him at the door of the hotel’s restaurant was “totally French.”

Welcome to Big D

Over the years, Fearing’s seen Big D before and after the city’s culinary gold rush. “I really think we are international now,” he says of the modern day foodie scene in his adopted hometown. Interestingly, he attributes much of it to a unique, cosmopolitan attitude he’s observed around Dallas for many years. It was that kind of attitude that became Fearing’s cue for understanding exactly where he wanted to take his own cuisine. And since there was already an overabundance of French restaurants in town, he decided to do “… what Wolfgang Puck was doing, what Alice Waters was doing [with Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California], and what Larry Forgione [An American Place] was doing in New York City.” The time was right, Fearing considered, to put “our little American stamp” on Dallas. And with that, he took off. In 1981, during the early days of his tenure at The Mansion, Fearing remembers owner Caroline Rose Hunt wandering into the kitchen after a luncheon. At the time, Christian Cheim was the executive chef, and Fearing was his executive sous chef.

After attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Fearing set out to find his career. He soon drove south, to Dallas in 1978, for a job as a cook at the posh Pyramid Room in the elegant downtown Fairmount Hotel. “It was the only Five-Star Mobil Guide Hotel in this five-state area,” he recalls. Fearing remembers the Pyramid Room was, “… like every other restaurant in this town — they were all French.” In fact, other than a burger joint, Sonny Bryan’s BBQ (the first place he says he dined in town, following the lead of a Fairmont colleague) or an occasional diner, in those years Dallas featured a number of “American” dining spots. “It was French, Italian and continental … like Arthur’s [now on Quorum Drive in Addison],” he says. “I never could figure out what ‘continental’ was, exactly. I think it was kind of the first of the American restaurants, which [meant] they did everything.” Not surprisingly, by the time Fearing left the Pyramid Room for the fresh pastures of The Man-

Global Flair

In some form or another, Fearing’s been around the food business most of his life. “My dad was an innkeeper,” he explains, “and our family table was a table in the restaurant, Monday through Friday nights.” As the young Kentuckian matured, he worked the room, developing an invaluable skill set that would separate him from contemporaries and serve him well for decades to come. “My dad would always have guests and associates who would come up to the table,” he remembers. “We would all have to stand up and shake hands.” Family played an important role in his development and fundamental understanding of food. His grandmothers were deeply influential in his culinary awareness. They taught him the finer points of kitchens and a heartfelt

appreciation for southern cooking, particularly barbecue, which remains a backbone component in a variety of his dishes.

Farm to Fearing’s delicious vegetable salad features an artisanal Gem lettuce, Cask Aged Sherry Vinaigrette and Paula’s goat cheese.

“She hands Cheim a scrap of paper with scribbles all over it, and declares, ‘We are an international hotel, [however,] I would like to do something regional so that people could have a taste of Texas.’” Cheim took the paper and assured Ms. Hunt it would be done. “Christian turns to me and says, ‘I can’t believe she’s going to make me do a peasant soup,’” remembers Fearing. He then proceeds to instruct his young sous chef to “put this thing together so we can get it on the menu,” and walks off. The result was the beginnings of Fearing’s renowned Tortilla Soup, which would serve as a delicious calling card for years to come. “The very first cookbook I remember getting into was Dean Fearing’s Southwest Cuisine,” says Grady Spears, a Fort Worth native and one of America’s premiere cowboy chefs. Spears’ name has been attached to top-flight Texas restaurants including Reata, The Chisholm Club and The Burning Pear. His latest restaurant venture is Horseshoe Hill in Fort Worth’s historic Stockyards, and he’s also in his eighth year as the culinary partner for the NFL’s Houston Texans and Rodeo Houston. While Fearing’s southwest label may enter rooms before the chef, Spears thinks that’s too narrow —

he considers his colleague a true “forefather and creator of Texas cuisine.” Spears calls his friend of 20 years “approachable, incredibly nice and just someone I really look up to,” adding, “I’ve never told him this, but if I could be like someone … it’d be Dean.”

Drawing Inspiration When asked about his most significant influence, Fearing has his own a short list. “My mentor was Wolfgang Puck,” he says. In fact, he says he modeled his culinary career after what the Austrian-born chef was achieving at Ma Maison in Los Angeles. “And that was … to be a good cook, to serve good food, be consistent … and be humble.” As for the overarching brand most closely associated with Fearing than any other, he says he’s well aware. “I probably have a tattoo over my head that says ‘Southwest cuisine,’” he says, however, hastens to add that his self-perception is far from that of a one-trick pony. “I love Asian … I love Indian … and I love French,” he adds, enthusiastically. “People come into town and they want that southwest cuisine — that chicken-fried lobster. I never stay totally southwestern [but] I know that’s a big draw for us.” Fearing says the movement’s genesis occurred when “Robert Del Grande [Café Annie in Houston], Stephen Pyles [Dallas’ Routh Street Café] and I banded together to start Southwest cuisine.”

Fearing says their movement emphasized what was happening specifically in Texas, “but mainly what was going on in Dallas and Houston back in 1985.” He also believes it was distinctive — the kick-start of something that’d never been done. “Southwest cuisine is a true American cuisine,” he says.

Fearing’s Family Tree Another Fearing hallmark is the remarkable impact he’s had on young chefs around the area. “Dean’s has always been one of the ‘frontiersmen’ to me,” says Dallas chef Tre Wilcox (Top Chef, Iron Chef America). Along with Pyles and Texasbased Kent Rathbun, he says Fearing is “responsible for training some of the great chefs in this city.” Some of his most prized pupils over the years currently dot the culinary landscape around the U.S. “The tree of life is big in my world,” he laughs. Among the illustrious names at the top of Fearing’s extensive food chain is Nick Badovinus; his restaurants include local Neighborhood Services, Montlake Cut and Town Hearth. Then there is Jody Denton, executive research chef at PepsiCo-Frito Lay, who also worked on the staff at The Mansion. Other notable protégées include Randall Warder, whom Fearing refers to as “a big consultant in Las Vegas;” and Jeffrey Kollinger, who purchased Tillman’s Roadhouse in Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts district in 2016, then promptly hired another Fearing

apprentice, Michael Morabito, as executive chef. And don’t forget Nathan Tate (Rapscallion), Blythe Beck (formerly of Hector’s on Henderson, TV’s Naughty Kitchen and currently executive chef at Pink Magnolia) and Dan O’Leary (executive chef for Baker’s Ribs).

en. Woo also took the cover photo for this edition. “It all started in the summer of 1969 when Crosby, Stills & Nash came out with their first album,” he remembers. “I remember saving up $49.95 and we all ran down to the music store and bought [guitars]. “We were going to be [the next] CS&N. And that’s what started it.”

Past, Present & Future Nowadays, he plays jams with his celebrity friends on occasion, and with Dallas bands as an important creative outlet. Philosophically, Fearing believes the lessons of his past continue playing a role in his present, and hopefully, the future too.

Rock ‘n’ roll is also a key ingredient in Fearing’s life — the same kind of a passion, he says, as food. He’s an accomplished guitarist — a talented player and instrument collector who has shared stages with Hall of Fame friends including Steve Winwood (Blind Faith, Traffic), Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco) Jim Messina (Poco, Loggins & Messina) and more. Bob Boronow is a Dallas financial advisor, well-known foodie (he helped found a popular annual battle of the chefs known as “Dining Out in Dallas”) and a Fearing admirer. “Dean is a fun, free-spirited guy who infuses the way he lives his life right into his culinary creations,” he says. “Besides,” adds Boronow, “how many chefs are as competent with a spatula as they are with an electric guitar?” In a 2012 interview for the first edition of Dallas Hotel Magazine, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer David Woo shot Fearing wailing away on a vintage Fender Telecaster in his restaurant kitch-

“Throughout my career, I learned from the great Dallas moguls,” he says proudly, recounting relationships with Texas giants including construction magnate Henry Beck and retail legends Stanley Marcus and Ray Nasher, “ … All of those big, high-powered businessmen” as Fearing glowingly refers to them. Fearing says he remains mindful of those discussions to this day, and much of the practical advice he enthusiastically accepted over the years. “You can’t stop and retire,” they instructed the chef. “You’ve got to keep your mind going, just don’t stop.” “And I’m never going to stop,” he says with a smile.

eading the list of Cabo’s top getaways is Pueblo Bonito Golf & Spa Resorts, a handful of exceptional properties in the hemisphere’s fastest-growing and most glamorous destination. Currently celebrating its 30th anniversary as one of the region’s premier hotel and real estate firms, the company has an unparalleled record of excellence and a loyal following among both visitors and residents. Over the past three decades, this family-owned business has opened four all-inclusive hotels in Los Cabos, unveiled a new brand (Quivira Los Cabos) for its residential communities, and built a spectacular Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, among other accomplishments. First, the hotels: in 2005, the company debuted Pueblo Bonito

Pacifica, an adults-only, all-inclusive hotel along a 2.5-mile stretch of pristine beach. Designed to showcase the inimitable beauty of the Baja Peninsula’s mountain-desert-ocean environment, Pacifica redefined the upscale Cabo vacation experience for couples. Fast-forward to 2016 and The Towers at Pacifica, a “resort within a resort” located at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, which elevated the hotel to the ultra-luxe category. Featuring beautifully appointed accommodations, including a majestic Presidential Suite, The Towers offers a range of enhanced VIP amenities, including 24-hour butler service: These “artists of service,” all trained by the British Butler Institute, are experts at providing personalized luxury experiences.

For the traveling family, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, which opened in 2002 on a secluded site 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, is the perfect solution. Fronting the same glorious ocean beach as Pacifica, Sunset Beach—the largest hotel and fractional product in the company’s portfolio—is a multi-terraced, all-suite property that boasts a dazzling Sky Pool set high above the sea and an array of restaurants, including LaFrida, an elegant adults-only dining room that honors famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and reigns as a perennial AAA Four Diamond Award winner for excellence.

offers an array of eclectic eateries from Asian to Italian. On the real estate side, Quivira Los Cabos opened the first units at Copala in 2015. A full-ownership home and condominium community fanned out along desert bluffs, the master-planned, gated development showcases Mexican hacienda-style one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominiums with panoramic ocean views. When completed, Copala will comprise seven six-floor towers containing 36 condominium units per building. Copala Residences, which range in size from 1,800 to 2,400 square feet, are handsome custom homes, available in multiple layouts, designed to honor the region’s heritage. A total

of 86 houses will be built on an ocean-view site below the Copala condominiums. To serve the needs of Copala residents, a 60,000-square-foot, multi-level clubhouse features an infinity-edge pool, spa, movie theater, casual restaurant, a deli/ market, business center, and other amenities. There’s also a clubhouse concierge on hand to handle member requests. The newest and most exclusive residential offerings within Quivira Los Cabos are the Coronado Residences, which debuted in early 2017. Set on a desert ridge high above the sea, this premier 22-acre community of 68 homes is terraced below the Copala development, with each single-level residence offering ocean panora-

mas as well as views of the rolling fairways at nearby Quivira Golf Club. The four- and five-bedroom homes are available in five model options, two different lot sizes, and range from 4,100 to 5,000 square feet of luxurious indoor/ outdoor living space. Coronado’s first phase is expected to be completed by 2018. Golfers relish Quivira Los Cabos. On a spectacular site marked by huge dunes, sheer cliffs, and rolling foothills, Jack Nicklaus produced a strategic masterpiece. Opened in 2014, Quivira Golf Club, featuring more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos, was recognized as the Best New International Course of the Year by Golf Magazine. Remember those fantasy golf calendars with holes airbrushed onto vertical cliffs? Quivira has a few of those. It also has twisting arroyos, acres of cactus, lots of rocks…in sum, a little bit of everything Los Cabos offers. The drive to the fifth hole, which traces a switchback route up the side of a mountain, climbs to a vertigo-inducing tee perched 275 feet above the foaming surf. At just under 300 yards from the regular tees, this downhill par 4 can be driven, but it’s ‘hasta la vista’ if you miss the rock-walled, cliff-hanging green. The layout’s back nine weaves through the dunes and returns to the sea at the massive, Z-shaped par-5 12th hole. Behind the green is a deserted beach where many of the scenes in Troy, the swords-and-sandals epic starring Brad Pitt, were filmed. Every bit as memorable is the 13th hole, a petite par 3 that plays over a yawning abyss to a wafer-like green set atop a pinnacle of fissured granite rising more than 100 feet above the sand and surf. Arguably the most daring, eclectic course Nicklaus has ever built, Quivira is an aesthetic tour de force that offers a memorable challenge from any set of tees. In addition to a beachfront practice facility and thatched-roof clubhouse, the club’s comfort stations are well stocked with complimentary Mexican specialties and refreshments.

Quivira is accessible to guests of all Pueblo Bonito Golf & Spa Resorts in Los Cabos, though golfers tend to gravitate to Pacifica, which is located five minutes from the golf club. Make no doubt about it: Pueblo Bonito and Quivira Los Cabos have what everyone wants. Deluxe accommodations. Superb dining. Arresting amenities. A truly relaxing vibe. And the friendliest welcome in Mexico.

Just one of the exotic birds you’ll find at The Dallas World Aquarium. But that’s not all. The Dallas World Aquarium also features coral reef and kelp forest ecosystems in large naturalistic displays and a 200,000-gallon walk-through Shark tunnel. 1801 N Griffin St / 214.720.2224 / dwazoo.com
