Coming Soon: Oceanic Boil
« on: November 23, 2014, 12:38:40 PM »
Just passed the old YoYo Accessories store on 37th b/t 84th and 85th (south side), and there is a sign for a new restaurant coming soon called Oceanic Boil, with a picture of a lobster. Sounds like something exciting and different for the neighborhood. Anyone have any scoop??

That is the best name for a restaurant I've heard in a while.

i) trenchant commentary on global warming?

Or

ii)  maybe it's a dermatology clinic for seafarers?

sounds good. my guess is something akin to this flushing place, sort of a mixed bag of seafood boil?

The company that filed the liquor license request is called Minh and Jimmy.  http://www.businesslookup.org/minh_and_jimmy_company_inc

I know Minh is a common Vietnamese first name, but other than that, I can't find any clues.

However, to continue with the speculating  :) maybe it's something like this Vietnamese Immigrants Carry on a Cajun Food Tradition

I agree - the name is unfortunate.  Sounds like a skin condition you get from swimming too much.

Sure it wasn't a crayfish?  That's what i think of when i think of a boil.

Interesting about the Vietnamese/Crayfish boil mash-up. Must be a crayfish on the sign. Oh yes...that name!! Well, hope the food is a winner!

My senses tell me it's going to be Vietnamese crab boil - which is awesome. I am curious that is located next to Saw Shack, and the logo seems similar.

Not really familiar with what a Vietnamese seafood boil is, I did a little research on YouTube and came across this video. Is this what we can look forward to IVVS3? This looks fun!

Oh, I was thinking like the seafood boils that I had in New Orleans...


I am looking forward to whatever this is. Vietnamese + Ocean + Boil = great in my book


Here's something to think about:
