Never, ever, ever underestimate the celebrity power of Dean Fearing. Our Dallas homeboy knows, like, everyone. And he’s bringing his buddies, John Folse and James Beard Award-winning Rick Tramonto to Dallas for a little Louisiana creole night on Thursday, March 28, at Fearing’s restaurant. (Reception at 6:30 p.m. Dinner at 7 p.m.) So the price isn’t cheap ($155 per person, add $50 if you desire wine pairings), but it should be worth selling your left arm. No, really.
The press release states that “Lousiana’s John Folse founded Lafitte’s Landing Restaurant in 1978, bringing “a taste of Louisiana” to the world and later bringing it to the 1988 Presidential Summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. In 1989, Folse became the first non-Italian chef to create the Vatican State Dinner in Rome, prompting the Louisiana Legislature to name him “Louisiana’s Culinary Ambassador to the World.”
For one night, you can pretend to be a world leader dining on world-class food.
