Meet Dean Fearing

Here’s an easy one. Make reservations at Fearing’s at the Ritz-Carlton. Take your seat, order a top-shelf margarita, and wait for the show. You can’t miss Dean Fearing. He’s the one in the custom-fitted Lucchese boots and the clean white apron, glad-handing his way around the room like a politician on Election Day. Fearing will shake your hand, slap your back, and kiss your kids. When you return, he’ll greet you by name.  Photography by Tadd Myers
