Louisiana Crawfish (ex-Tempest Lounge)

The spot previously occupied by The Tempest Lounge (Main @ Broadway) is now vacant, with new banner sign outside that says coming soon, Louisiana Crawfish. Anyone know the tidbits behind this one ?

          Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar has fried soft shell crab po' boys:

        2. Tried cray out today, the food us utter c***. they have no idea have to cook, not to mention cajun food... the only thing thats good is that they have beer. I am a big crayfish fan and am a regular customer at hot n juicy in vegas, but this place sucks in comparison! Im cutting cray the slack cuz they've only been open a few days, but am seriously disappointed. crawfish king is 1000% better I was hoping that cray would be better so that I wouldn't have to drive to richmond for my crayfish fix.

            Well that's bad news, considering Crawfish King is in the dumpers right now. Any idea who's behind this operation ?
