New Orleans is over 2,000 miles away and a 948-hour walk from Seattle—so popping over to The Big Easy just to get our hands on a quick pot of gumbo and freshly powdered beignets is out of the question. Good thing Jude’s exists. This Cajun restaurant does feature classics like gumbo and beignets, though they also have dishes like smoky blackened shrimp served over fluffy grits, and dirty rice loaded with tons of spices and juicy ground pork. Stop in for a simple weeknight dinner that involves snacking on hushpuppies and sipping bourbon.
