A restaurant specializing in Cajun-style boiled seafood has just opened its third location (and first in Boston proper). Loui Loui Louisiana Seafood added an Allston location to the mix last weekend, opening up the doors of 160 Brighton Ave. and feeding guests bags and bags of boiled, fried, and raw seafood.
Loui Loui Louisiana Seafood has one location in Stoneham, which opened early last year, as previously reported, and another in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The Allston location features the same menu of Louisiana-style boiled seafood, including mussels, clams, shrimp, lobster, crawfish, and a few different kinds of crab. There are also fried seafood options that come with Cajun fries, along with oysters and clams on the half-shell, clam chowder, and jambalaya.
Early reviews on Yelp are largely positive, with one guest writing that it is a “solid seafood option” in Allston and another writing that the fried clams and calamari were “nice and crispy.”
Loui Loui Allston is open seven days a week from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. It joins Holly Crab in Packard’s Corner and Shaking Crab in Newton in dishing out Southern-style seafood in the Boston area.
