These Jersey City Seafood Boil Restaurants Offer a Taste of the Big Easy

23Jun

We may be used to white tablecloths at our Jersey City restaurants, but in the South, foodies love to dig in – especially at seafood boils, where seafood is cooked in a large pot with seasonings before being dumped on tables for diners to eat with their hands!

Here in Jersey City, you can get a taste of this delicious seafood tradition at our restaurants specializing in seafood boils straight from the South. At these eateries, choose from crab legs, clams, shrimp and more and prepare for a full stomach!

Just BeClaws, located at 280 1st St, Jersey City which is five minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a family-style seafood spot serving seafood boils, po’ boys and shrimp baskets in a nautical-themed, industrial space.

At an early age, brothers Francis and Nambinh Tran were introduced to the restaurant industry when their family opened up their restaurant “Miss Saigon” in Jersey City more than 20 years ago. Inspired by the family business and their love of seafood – a staple in the Vietnamese culture – the brothers brought a little bit of flavor to Jersey City when they opened Just BeClaws in 2015.

The Boil, located at 8 Erie St, Jersey City which is eight minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a lively seafood-focused restaurant and bar that serves fresh Creole and Cajun-style cuisine.

Here, seafood is ordered by the pound with your choice of sauce and spice. This rapidly growing local chain also has locations on the Lower East Side and Greenwich Village, with another soon to come in Brooklyn.
