One foot in front of the other, that's how Rick Parsons has built his business. He started with a stall at the Saturday Morning Market in St. Petersburg — jambalaya and other NoLa lovelies — then leased a small space vacated by In Your Belly Deli on Fourth Street N. The menu expanded to include deli sandwiches, po'boys, drippy cochon de lait sandwiches and muffaletta. Then he added a second, equally humble location inside Bob Lee's Tire & Mobil Co. and most recently the old Savannah's location on Central Avenue. The space is spectacular: high, pressed-tin ceilings in a two-floor room, warm ochre walls, cozy booths and a new covered patio area in which live music can be heard on the weekends. And the menu is hearty portions of etouffee, jambalaya and the like.
