After more than a year of sitting idly, the Assembly Music Hall space will finally transform into something else—but it won’t be a live entertainment venue.
Instead, it will become the Boiling Crab, one in a small chain of restaurants, with locations throughout California as well as Texas and Nevada. There’s already one in south Sacramento.
The casual eatery specializes in cajun-flavored seafood, and it aims to open 1000 K Street, Suite 100 in early November. The concept is pretty simple: choose your seafood, such as crab legs, crawfish or shrimp; pick a seasoning blend; and decide how much spice you can handle. The result gets steamed or boiled in a bag—”to preserve the flavors,” according to the menu. There are a few sides and fried options as well.
