FORT LEE, N.J. -- Seafood lovers craving a little Louisiana-style creole can turn to a new restaurant that's turned up the heat in Fort Lee.
Loui Loui based in Stoneham, Mass., just opened a second location on Main Street. The cafe serves boiled and fried seafood that combines homemade cajun spices with traditional Louisiana gourmet.
The restaurant offers a raw bar with oysters or clams on the half shell. Mussels, clams, shrimp, crawfish and a variety of crab come boiled and served with a choice of three sauces in a range of spiciness.
From the fryer, there are clams, shrimp, oysters, calamari and fish, along with chicken wings or tenders for land lovers.
Sides include andouille sausage, garlic noodles, corn on the cob, baked beans and standby favorites like fries (cajun or regular), rice, potatoes and coleslaw.
Jambalaya is also available by the cup or bowl, along with New England-style clam chowder.
Yelp reviewers have consistently rated Loui Loui five stars, calling the seafood boil fresh, authentic and delicious, and the fish and chips extra crispy. The sauces and garlic noodles were noted as being especially worthy.
The restaurant is BYOB and open daily 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.
