Crab boil & mariscos restaurant Pirata Luchi now open on 29th & Swan

Seafood is also available by the pound.

Louisiana-style crab boil restaurant Pirata Luchi quietly opened on Saturday at 4606 E. 29th St. The space previously held El Taquito King and before that, a second location for Mexican restaurant El Sur.

Operating hours are listed as 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Friday – Wednesday and 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. on Thursday. We swung by Tuesday for more information, but they had a sign up stating they were closed that day;  here are the other basic details summed up from their Facebook page.

Seafood is available by the pound; it is boiled in seasoned stock and rubbed with the restaurant’s signature drunken sauce.
