Eagle Rock is next up on the casual seafood express, having only just landed the new Crawfish on Fire last week. The peel-and-eat idea has proven to be a popular one around Los Angeles, with places like Boiling Crab doing gangbusters wherever they land.

This new Eagle Rock iteration offers by-the-pound ordering (most of it is listed as Market Price, so watch out), though there are options for fried fish baskets and sides like sausages and hot wings.

The restaurant is located in the same strip mall as the former Lemongrass, along the busy intersection between Eagle Rock Boulevard and York. It’s a tough corner for consistent foot traffic given the high car density there, but with a new concept and casual environs there could be life amongst the local crowd yet.

Crawfish on Fire keeps daily hours, opening weekday at 3 p.m. and weekends at noon.
