Photos: "Taste of Soulard" Shows Off Restaurants' Cajun Inspiration

It's been a good weekend for people who love New Orleans. In Soulard, participating restaurants brought out special menu items with varying levels of Creole and Cajun influences for the pre-Mardi Gras food festival, Taste of Soulard.

Photographer Jason Stoff hit up several restaurants on Sunday afternoon. In between the dozens and dozens of dogs walking the street for the Dog Parade, he shot these dishes.

Here's a full slideshow from the Taste of Soulard.

Johnny's chef Chris Roth says their Red Beans and Rice is a little different than what you'd get in New Orleans - theirs is a lighter dish, and more soup-like. It's a dish they've been perfecting since 1993. See more photos here.
