Crab Du Jour Is Opening in Hyde Park

A rapidly-growing chain of Cajun seafood restaurants will be opening its first location in Boston.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Crab Du Jour is planning to open in Hyde Park, with the address indicating that it would be moving into the shopping center on Hyde Park Avenue that is home to America's Food Basket. Based on the other locations of the chain, expect to find such items as hush puppies, fried pickles, seafood baskets, po boys, crawfish, crab, lobster, and more.

Crab Du Jour first started out in 2019 in Raleigh, NC, and now has approximately 60 locations mostly along the East Coast.

The address for Crab Du Jour in Hyde Park is 950 Hyde Park Avenue, Hyde Park, MA, 02136. The website for the chain can be found at

[April 22 update: A poster within Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants tells us that Crab Du Jour is now open, with a Facebook post from the restaurant confirming that it indeed opened today.]
