Crab du Jour

12075 SW 152nd St., Miami
The fast-growing Cajun-inspired seafood restaurant chain known for its seafood boils has opened its 85th location at the Deerwood Town Center in Miami. Here, customers select their seafood, choose from an array of house-blended sauces like Cajun, garlic butter, Old Bay, lemon pepper, or ‘du jour’ which incorporates all of the options, customize their desired spice level, and add side items like corn, potatoes, and sausage. Each boil is served in a bag, which is shaken and presented tableside in front of guests. In addition to the boils, the menu also includes Cajun specialties and non-seafood dishes, as well as a full-service bar. 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11:30 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

1737 N. Bayshore Dr., Miami
Entrepreneur Sasha Krilov and restaurateur Misha Zelman have launched a joint culinary venture: Klaw, which recently opened in Edgewater. Here, the duo has breathed new life into the 96-year-old Miami Women’s Club, a five-story structure on the waterfront that was one of the first buildings in Florida to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's now home to the only rooftop bar in Edgewater, boasting unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay. Klaw's concept is high-end surf and turf, including king crab shipped from the Arctic seas of Norway and kept in the restaurant's bespoke tanks before cooked and cracked tableside. 5:30 p.m. to midnight Wednesday through Sunday.
