Anyone tried it out yet? Saw the sign/banner yesterday driving down Atlantic. Review on Yelp seems to be by the owner. The korean place that used to be there was not too bad.

    This place is officially gone. For lease sign on door. I never did see the restaurant open for business.

      I was there a few weeks back. It is more of a boiling crab with some korean food. More pricier than BC in my opinion as I had to pay extra for the corn and potatoes in the seafood. This is not a cafe. I went in thinking it was. They sell seafood by the pound and comes out kinda spicy. I ordered mild and it was very spicy. But service was good as we were the only ones there. A few other people came in and left after seeing the menu.

        This place isn't even open. Looks totally dead on the outside except for a sign saying they're open from 5 pm to 2 am, plus the Grand Opening sign. But it wasn't open even at 6pm. Also there are no Yelp reviews--not even the one that the owner put up a while ago.

          I just looked at the Yelp review.. sounds like an idiot wrote it. His one and only review.. you must be right, that must be the owner or an interested party. : )

            Boiling Crab + Sunday Bistro = DJ Cafe?

              Now I'm confused.
              I tolerate BC but hate SB.

                I'm just saying that DJ seems like a combo of Asian seafood and hong-kong style cafe ...

                Not making any sort of qualitative statement about any of the places.

                  Got it.
                  When you mentioned the two I thought maybe they were the same owners.
                  Sounded like quantitative analysis.
