BeClaws Cajun-fusion restaurant opened in Hyattsville last week.
The restaurant focuses on seafood, with Cajun and Asian influences. You can order crawfish, shrimp, clams, mussels, snow crab, king crab and lobster by the pound; try traditional Louisiana entrees like a seafood po’ boy, gumbo and crawfish étouffée; or have a bowl of Cajun seafood pho or ramen.
There’s also lots of fun drink options, with a daily happy hour starting at 7:30 p.m. And the kids menu includes chicken tenders, fish and chips and grilled cheese, although more adventurous kids can add crawfish to their macaroni and cheese.
BeClaws will also expand the area’s brunch options, with a special menu that includes Cajun shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, bananas foster pancakes and breakfast tacos.
The interior decor has a few fun Louisiana touches including a tin ceiling, lights made with mason jars and wall of different colored shutters. It’s also very light and airy, with classy touches like a gas fireplace and ambient lighting that would make it a great option for date night or brunch with the in-laws.
Manager David Neal told the Hyattsville Wire that the restaurant will have a grand opening celebration at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, including some special guests.
