Fish story: Crab Du Jour bringing seafood boils to 1st Avenue

An outpost of Crab Du Jour is opening at 225 First Ave. between 13th Street and 14th Street. The coming-soon signage arrived late last week. (Thanks to Pinch for the photo!

This is the latest NYC location for the expanding chain described as a Cajun Seafood Boil & Bar. 

Per the restaurant's website:
Crab Du Jour offers experience-driven seafood dining in a fun, communal atmosphere, perfect for friends and family. Our Cajun-inspired eatery is known for fresh seafood boils (made for sharing) and an array of signature house-blended sauces, to enhance the experience. 
We offer everything from delicious starters like wings, po-boys, chicken tenders, and seafood favorites such as fried fish, shrimp, crab and oysters.

This address was previously a Checkers, which closed late last year after six years in business.

I really wish the NYPD would take a more proactive stance and arrest all the 'artists' tagging buildings.

^Absolutely. The EVill is looking pretty banged up these days. Overflowing trash bins, shitty tagging (this is NOT) art, barren tree beds. NYU has barren, overgrown tree beds all down 3rd Avenue. Forlorn. Looks like shit. Maybe landlords should also be held accountable for maintaining empty storefronts through fines. Things would probably change quickly.

Yeah, NYPD arresting people is the answer. You’ve got to be kidding me with that.
