The Boiling Crab will soon complete its takeover of the former Westwood Brewing Company, making it perhaps the largest branch of the Cajun seafood chainlet. The Koreatown location, which already features some of the most tremendous lines in L.A., is currently the most western location, though this Westwood spot will jump that by a few miles.

Based on the signage and hiring announcements on the front, it looks like The Boiling Crab is firing up the pots and close to completing its overhaul of the divey "brew-co," as it was often referred to by local UCLA students. At the moment, windows are papered up, but spicy shrimp and crawfish will be heading to Westwood within the next few weeks.
