Another beautiful day in the neighborhood as the craveRADIO staff hosted another slate of fantastic guests. This week we had on the charming and talented Chef Dean Fearing from Fearing’s in the beautiful Ritz Carlton Dallas in Uptown. We had a spirited conversation about wine, women and song, as well as BBQ and that one time when Fearing almost murdered the most beloved woman on earth, Julia Child. Fearing also chats with us about his new Fall menu which is about to debut any day now. We also chatted about certain menu items which can never, ever go away. Think lobster tacos, his legendary tortilla soup and that amazing banana pudding that just makes you feel at home.   


If you want t find out Fearing’s favorite BBQ spot in Dallas, listen in below and enjoy.

Also on the program Charlie Papeceno co-owner of The Windmill, a little neighborhood bar that is slinging some amazing, and affordable cocktails eve bit as good as the fancy spots found in Uptown and elsewhere across the city. Charlie always has fun tales, corny jokes and a clever smile, but he is also considered the bartender’s bartender. This is the only New Yorker expat that knows how to make real Texas chili. Find out how he came up with his recipe, and enjoy a bowl later this week at his bar located on Maple Avenue in Dallas. Find out why Esquire Magazine named his bar one of the nation’s very best.


If that wasn’t entertainment enough, we also had James Jordan from the Wine Poste, the new breed of boutique wine shops in Dallas’ Design District. This fresh shop offers a unique experience to their guests, such as special celebrity chef wine dinners that always sell out as fast as they are announced, wine tastings with winemakers from across the country, and special parties that pop up periodically. Mr. Jordan shared some pretty terrific wines that often can only be found at better restaurants, or the winery itself. These hard to find labels are not uncommon at the Wine Poste.
