Jonathan Wright Rumors

I'd heard this last week, but it's flying around the boards now at Chowhound and eGullet, so I guess it's safe to post here. Yes, rumor has it Jonathan Wright will be taking the top chef spot at Dallas' grand dame, The Mansion at Turtle Creek. (I've had lots of Dallas folks stopping in over the past few days.) Chef Dean Fearing is departing (supposedly for the new Ritz in Dallas, I haven't heard officially) taking his signature southwest-style cuisine with him. My guess is this will be a great fit for Wright. He'll have a restaurant and staff already set up to provide world class service, and he can just concentrate on the food.
