  Chef Tres Barnard opened his soul food-inspired pop-up, We've Got Soul, at Carrollton Station (8140 Willow St., 504-865-9190; www.carrolltonstation.com) Oct. 2. Barnard previously ran the pop-up at Marie's Bar and at the now-shuttered Jims in the Bywater. Barnard, who hails from Mississippi, says the changing Southern-inspired menu is influenced by the meat-and-three-style dishes he grew up with. The opening weekend menu included barbecue nachos made with 16-hour smoked pulled pork, cheese sauce, jalapenos and green onions; cold-smoked chicken wings with blue cheese and Buffalo sauce (pictured); pan-seared soft-shelled crab with roasted pecan and buttermilk puree; and merguez-roasted leg of lamb with char-grilled peaches and rum-raisin compote. We've Got Soul is open from 5 p.m. to midnight Thursday through Sunday.
