How much will Fearings cost me?

Hi. Thinking of Fearings for hubby's b-day dinner. Menus sound tantalizing but no prices. What are the price ranges for lunch entrees and dinner entrees? What about the 3-course brunch menu? Should I take him there for brunch and then go somewhere else for dinner? Will "The Ocaso" outdoor dining patio be opened during early November?

Any other ideas for a nice b-day lunch / dinner / activities? We went to Stephen Pyles last year, which was good but not fabulous IMO. Hubby lives in Dallas. I live in Chicago, so not really well versed in the Dallas dining scene.

  1. I went to Fearing's with a few friends for lunch several months ago. I think we spent about $50/pp? That included soft drinks, appetizers and dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. Out waitperson was attentive without being pushy and all of us received a thank you card from her within a week of our visit. It was a great experience and one I highly reccomend.

    1. An average of $30 at lunch and $60 at dinner.

          Thanks for the link Webra1 and I am glad I asked. I was expecting $25-$30 dinner entrees, not $40-$50. And the apps Seeing as we're off to Paris in 4 weeks, it would be wise (and frugal) of me to pass this one up for now. Any suggestions anyone?

          1. re: Moshi Moshi

            Yep, you can eat really, really well in Paris for the $300.00 it would cost you at Fearings.

              If you are looking for a high-end 5-star experience, you might try Aurora for lunch where it seems they have three-course prix fix options priced at $16.95 and $21.95. I haven't been, but it's on my to-do list.

              This article has more info, but is a few months old, so you might want to call and double-check:

                Bijoux is AMAZING, if you are looking for a fine dining scene. If you are looking for something less fine dinign, may I suggest Hattie's. Wonderful southern comfort food. I am a huge fan of Al Biernat's. The quality of the food exceeds the price IMHO.

                1. re: chickstein

                  Been to Hattie's - just wonderful - both in food and atmosphere. Hubby has been to Al Biernat's and he said it was "alright". Aurora's 3-course lunch prix fixe looks like a great value but unfortunately only available M-F. We're leaning towards the $42 brunch at Fearings, but will look into Bijoux too. Thanks for the rec!

                    You might also consider Screen Door for Brunch. 3 courses for $32. Their Shrimp and Grits may be one of the best dishes I've had in a long time. I also had the best cherry cobbler I've ever eaten there. Great service also.

                    Personally, I enjoyed Screen Door far more than Fearings.


            2. I am not sure how "fine" you want your fine dining but my recent experience at Rise was absolutely fabulous. If the weather is nice you can sit outside. It was rich but every single thing was delicious and the atmosphere was great.

              Oh Lola has three courses for $39 and four for $47 for dinner with plenty of food in each course. The wine prices are great and the selection is the best in Dallas. You will always feel special in their environment.
