Fearing’s Restaurant To Bring Warmth and Nostalgia to Christmas Eve Menu, Presenting Fondly-Remembered Dinner Options – And a Box of Cookies For Santa
DALLAS, TX. December 1, 2010 -- When Dean Fearing was a young boy growing up in Kentucky, he would often assist his innkeeper father with preparation of Christmas Eve dinner. His fondest memory of that annual tradition is the crown roast of prime rib placed in the center of the family table, surrounded by flavorful seasonal side dishes, and enjoyed in a home filled with the aromas of holiday roast, spices and seasonings.
To this day, Fearing equates Christmas Eve with this beloved main course favorite. "When the family gathered for Christmas Eve dinner, the smell of the crown roast just permeated the house. I couldn't wait to sit down at the table and take the first bite of that perfectly-roasted baron of beef, with all of the familiar side dishes: horseradish cream, natural jus, whipped potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and home-made rolls and pies. This has been a tradition in our family for years, and I will always treasure it."
In homage to the cherished holidays of his childhood, Dean Fearing has added his family-recipe crown roast of beef to a special three-course menu offered just for this Christmas Eve at Fearing’s. Each course presents a choice of dishes designed to bring back memories of holiday dishes and ingredients of yore.
Capping off the experience, Fearing’s will present a holiday gift of “Cookies for Santa” to departing guests, in hopes that the evening’s dining experience can be shared with any late-night visitors from the North Pole.
