The day we chose to go (to see Van Morrison) was a wet one, but we still got in some good eats. Plus some Juvenile and some awesome music in the gospel tent. Here are some photos of folks enjoying the food--including some damp, dedicated crawfish peelers.
We got the combo on the sign below: potato salad, creole stuffed crab, and catfish almondine.
Next, a soft-shell crab po-boy...mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Below is Bennachin's stand. I've never been to the restaurant, so I was happy to taste some of their festival food.
Bennachin's platter: poulet fricassee (chicken on a stick); fried plantains; and jama jama (sauteed spinach). I love those sweet plantains mixed with the spinach!
Dedicated crawfish fans.
So many choices, so little room in the stomach. Until next year: good-bye Jazz Fest. Hello plenty of parking in the neighborhood.
