Word from Dean Fearing is that he has been consulting with American Express as they open luxury lounges throughout the country. The first lounge opened in Las Vegas, and this month they will be opening just such a lounge in Terminal D at DFW.
The new Amex Centurion Lounge are much swankier and nearly a destination to themselves. Available free to holders of the by-invitation-only Amex Centurion Card or for $50 a visit for other Amex card members, the club offers restaurant-quality meals and snacks, a high-end cocktail bar and sleek relaxation areas.
There are also quiet, private workspaces and all of the power and Internet connectivity needed to work productively before, after or between flights.
Each city will feature prominent chef driven dining, and this is where Fearing comes in. At D16 you will enjoy a menu inspired by Fearing, high end cocktails, free massages, as well as mani and pedis.
“In each of their city’s America Express has asked a local chef to consult with their menu, and they approached me,” said Fearing in a recent craveDFW interview.
“It is mainly geared towards breakfast and lunch; so breakfast tacos, French toast, all with my kind of flair to it. A taco bar and great salads. Fun food you will want to have. I think for the traveler it needs to be Texas-style food,” continued Fearing.
The lounge is 10,000 square feet large and will open later this month at DFW.
