by Jennifer Truesdale

Have you eaten at Craving Cajun yet? Having opened in January, you've had nearly a year to come see what all the fuss is about -- and there has been quite a fuss.

Since NS Everett/Marsyville alumna Cynthia Bowens and her husband Calvin opened the doors of their grill on Colby Avenue, they've been winning competitions and wonderful reviews. In October they took third place for Best New Restaurant in Evening Magazine's King5 Best of Western Washington competition.

The Everett Herald featured an article on the Bowens in its Oct. 21 edition. The article points out how Cynthia's business degree, earned at Columbia College, along with the couple's extensive kitchen experience and dedication to continued learning, adapting and evolving to a changing business environment, have helped them succeed. Be sure to read the article -- and be sure to get down to Colby Avenue for some crawfish!
