In just a few short years, celeb chef Chris Shepherd’s Southern Smoke foundation has raised well over $1 million for the MS Society and for restaurant-industry workers who need emergency financial assistance. And in true Chris Shepherd fashion, the master of reinvention and evolution presents, for the first time, Southern Smoke Spring, a springtime iteration of his annual fall foodie festival.


The main events — dinners with internationally acclaimed chefs Aaron Franklin, Jamie Malone, Jamie Bissonnette and Chris Cosentino — are essentially sold-out. But a unique and Texas-centric way to participate in the cause remains: Citywide Steak Nights take place April 16 and 17.

For this campaign, go-to purveyor 44 Farms has donated beef to more than 20 restaurants, from EaDo to Tomball, who will in turn create delicious, two-night-only dishes. Expect grilled beef tenderloin with mole Coloradito at Xochi; flank steak Tagliata with heirloom polenta at Coltivare; and sugarcane-smoked short rib with bacon-tomato jam and fava bean puree at Brennan’s of Houston. Shepherds’ own UB Preserv will serve a dish called Combo No. 88: hot and sour soup, fried rice, an eggroll and beef and broccoli. All restaurants will donate 100 percent of proceeds to the Southern Smoke foundation.
