Fearing’s Restaurant is planning a star-studded celebration of its upcoming fifth anniversary, with the two-month commemoration to take place over four evenings between August and October 2012. The special celebration dinner series will feature guest appearances by several celebrity chefs who have provided major inspiration to Chef Dean Fearing, both then and now.
The series will kick off with a casual August 19 evening starring Alabama’s legendary Chris Lilly, barbecue world champion and chef/partner of Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q. Next, two dinners anchored by famed TV chefs Michael Chiarello and Hubert Keller will celebrate five years of Fearing’s. On September 19, Food Network’s Emmy Award-winner Michael Chiarello will join Dean Fearing and his team as they celebrate the Napa Style of Chef Chiarello, while on October 4, Hubert Keller, acclaimed for restaurants including Fleur de Lys in San Francisco and for his master judge role on Bravo TV’s Top Chef series, will present a uniquely French-inspired evening at Fearing’s.
The Fearing’s Fifth Anniversary Series will culminate on October 19 with a special Dean’s Time Machine dinner, as menu highlights from throughout Chef Fearing’s culinary career will be presented by Fearing and by Houston celebrity chef Robert Del Grande of RDG/Bar Annie, to be followed by a musical performance of the Barbwires all-chef band.
A full series ticket providing participation in all four Fearing’s Fifth Anniversary events is priced at $400 per person and may be purchased beginning June 1, 2012 at 214-922-4817. Tickets may also be purchased at individual prices, based on availability, with partial ticket proceeds from all sales to be presented to the preferred charity of each participating guest chef and of Chef Fearing.Aug. 19, Family Barbecue with Chris Lilly, $55 per person Sept. 19, Dinner with Michael Chiarello, $155 per person Oct. 4, Dinner with Hubert Keller, $155 per person Oct. 19, Dean’s Time Machine with Robert Del Grande and the Barbwires
