When news broke in May that Nathanial Zimet (pictured), the chef/owner of Boucherie, was shot during a robbery, his friends and admirers in the restaurant business wasted no time organizing benefits to help his recovery. The biggest to date is Sunday's Beasts & Brass ("beast" is an affectionate reference to Zimet's work ethic) at the Howlin' Wolf. It begins with a patron party from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with brass bands, an open bar and food from a host of new-guard New Orleans restaurants, including La Petite Grocery, The Three Muses, Iris, Patois, Crescent Pie & Sausage Co., Martinique Bistro, Rambla, Lilette, St. James Cheese Co., Cure, Dante's Kitchen, La Boca and Sucre, plus Boucherie itself and local caterer Joel's Grand Cuisine. A general admission party with a cash bar and more bands begins at 9 p.m., when Zimet's food truck, Que Crawl, will serve barbecue outside. Tickets $20, patron party $85 in advance, $100 at the door. — Ian McNulty
