about us


Parish NW came to us through rich history of family restaurants and a love of all things New Orleans. Our goal of bringing traditional and authentic southern food while still using high-quality and local (whenever we can) ingredients has come to life in this down home rendition of what was passed down to us from previous generations. Keeping that tradition is very important to us, and we would love to share a bit of it with you.


Executive Chef
Alek Akers

Born on the bayou just outside of Houston, Texas, Chef Alek moved to the Seattle area as a teenager. Working his way from greasy spoons and pizzerias to highly lauded downtown restaurants, he developed a passion for making simple delicious food with quality ingredients. Now he brings his skills, creativity, and dedication to Parish. He spends his free time making music with his band, working in his garden, and spending time in the great outdoors with his wife and dogs.

“Love, peace and chicken grease.”
