A One-Night Stars Comeback; Dallas' Chefs for Farmers

SAN FRANCISCO— Legendary SF restaurant Stars has long been defunct, but its chef Jeremiah Tower will revive his much-beloved pillar to California cuisine for one night only, as part of a fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation. On November 7, Tower (along with chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark) will cook up a Stars menu from 1989 featuring classic dishes like "steak tartare, caviar and blini, oysters, tea-smoked duck breast, and vintage Champagne." The dinner will take over Foreign Cinema; more information here. [Eater SF]

DALLAS— The second-annual Chefs for Farmers event will fete in Dallas on November 3. Eater Dallas reports that the lineup, organized by FT33's Matt and Iris McCallister, will feature bites by local chefs Kent Rathbun and Janice Provost, as well as McCrady's Jeremiah Langhorne. Tickets and more information here. [Eater Dallas]

PORTLAND— Nicky USA's 13th-annual meat orgy known as Wild About Game threw down just outside Portland, Oregon last weekend, pitting four Portland chefs against Seattle chefs in a wild-game cook-off. PDX emerged largely victorious, winning three out of four head-of-head battles, with St. Jack chef Aaron Barnett winning the Judge's Choice award. Seattle's Joey Serquinia, the lone Seattle chef to win his bout, earned the People's Choice award. [Eater PDX]
