Jumbalaya and Other Cajun Eats West of Cleveland

Craving jumbalaya, corn bread, etc. after having phenomenal food at Acme Oyster House in New Orleans and at The Bayou in Glenwood Springs, CO this year. Help!? Any recommendations that aren't downtown Cleveland? Thanks.

  1. There is a place on Warrensville Center Road (just north of Cedar, I think) - Baptiste & Dupree - that is reputed to have authentic and wonderful Nola-inspired food to the Cajun side. I haven't tried it myself, but hear nothing but raves. Expect slow service and made-to-order from scratch food.

    1. re: NancyH

      Sounds great but that's even farther than downtown for me. I'm a West sider, closer to Lorain actually. I will keep this in mind if I get over to that side of town though.

    2. I know of zippo in this category, nothing. I wouldn't even consider Fat Fish Blue, which is downtown, as close to real cajun. Sorry.
