Georgia will become the first U.S. state to get a taste of the best seafood boil restaurant in Canada.
Founded in 2015, The Captain’s Boil saw immediate success in the Great White North with its unique offering of build-your-own Asian influenced, Louisiana-style, low country boils served in a family-style fashion. One of the restaurant’s founders was inspired to create the concept after taking a trip to the American South. Currently, the brand operates more than 20 locations across Canada and was named “Best Seafood in Toronto” by Now Magazine.
“We are very excited to have Atlanta as the launch point of our U.S. expansion,” said Eugene Chan, CEO of The Captain’s Boil in a press release statement. “The city’s growing reputation as a ‘food destination’ is what makes opening our first locations in the U.S. right here so special, and we can’t wait to share our favorite meal with Atlantans.”
Atlanta was identified as the ideal place to start the brand’s expansion in the States due to its flourishing dining scene and celebrated culinary diversity.
Beginning this fall, The Captain’s Boil will open in Atlanta’s Cumberland Mall at 2680 Cumberland Mall #1615. Additional locations are also planned in Woodstock at 180 Parkway 575 #100, and Lawrenceville at 911 Duluth Hwy #F. A fourth location is planned for the Sandy Springs area, but a representative for the brand told What Now Atlanta that the exact address could not be revealed at this time.
The official launch of The Captain’s Boil brand in the U.S. and its inaugural location in Georgia will be held later this year at the Cumberland location. Details regarding the grand opening event and ribbon cutting festivities will be announced next month. The brand plans to partner with local charities in support of the community.
“We hand-picked each of our locations because of the wonderful neighborhoods and people that surround them,” said Chan.
Atlanta’s hungry crowds can expect to enjoy fresh, succulent seafood feasts and modern digs. The menu features delicious seafood prepared with a mix of Southern flavors and Asian influences. A variety of options including crab legs, crawfish, lobster, shrimp, and mussels are offered and can be seasoned in lemon pepper, garlic, Cajun, or The Captain’s special blended sauce when ordering a boil.
Guests have the option to have their seafood hand-breaded or fried to order. Optional “add-on” sides include classics like corn, potatoes, Cajun fries, sausages, and okra. Creamy gouda macaroni and cheese bites, chicken wings, breaded calamari, and fresh oysters are offered as “shareables” for the table. Ten dipping sauces and tasty dessert options round out the menu. The Captain’s Boil provides a casual, boil presentation and encourages guests to literally dig in with provided gloves, bibs, and scissors.
