Here’s what was served at the Stop’s eighth-annual all-you-can-eat-and-drink night market

The Stop’s annual all-you-can-eat, al-fresco affair took over Stackt Market for a two-evening edible extravaganza from a bunch of the city’s best restaurants. Each night featured a different lineup of food and drink vendors, who donated their time and products for this fundraiser. This year alone, $330,000 was raised for The Stop’s vital anti-hunger programming. Here’s a look at some of what was served on the second night.

A band led hundreds of hungry guests into the market:

Donna’s delivered with a plate of barbecued lamb belly served over a pea-and-frisée salad that got a jolt from some jalapeño and mint. Here’s chef Jed Smith manning the grill:

And the finished dish:

The Tempered Room served chicken tikka wrapped in house-made paratha and dressed with a wild leek raita:

DaiLo’s Nick Liu went vegan, and served deep-friend tofu topped with mushroom duxelles and wing beans:
