Opening Alert: Westwood's Boiling Crab Now In Seafood-Shelling Business

The popular chain is in soft open mode.

Attention Westwoodians (Westwooders? Westwoodsmen?)! You may now begin forming orderly lines for The Boiling Crab.

The insanely popular local chain of Cajun-inflected seafood boils has officially soft opened on Glendon Avenue. The current Koreatown option is among the longer lines and wait times in that part of town already, and with lots of hungry UCLA students nearby in Westwood the lines at this latest version should be nothing short of extraordinary. The whole thing is kicking off at 3 p.m. today, so walk don’t run.

In anticipation of the rush, The Boiling Crab went ahead and made this among the largest restaurants in the chain, complete with a seriously nautical theme and lots of hanging TVs. That elbow room will come in handy while shelling seafood by hand and downing beers. Rumor has it, there’s even a back patio.

Head to Westwood now for some serious seafood action, courtesy of The Boiling Crab.
