EAST VILLAGE — A new cajun seafood restaurant is coming to Division Street in Wicker Park.
The Boil Cajun Seafood, 1805 W. Division St., will soon replace Harvest Moon, an artsy farm-to-table restaurant and lounge that closed in late 2017.
Huan Huan Liang, the owner of Boil Cajun Seafood, confirmed the restaurant would open soon but declined to answer other questions.
On Tuesday, an application for an incidental liquor license dated July 31 was posted to Boil Cajun Seafood’s window. Eater first reported the opening.
Before Harvest Moon, sushi and karaoke spot Bob San called the restaurant home for 15 years. Bob San closed in 2015.
Bob San’s owners, who also owned the 8,000-square-foot building, sold the property for $3.6 million, DNAinfo reported.
Unlike Bob San and Harvest Moon, it does not appear Cajun Shrimp Boil will take up the entire 8,000-square-foot storefront. The eastern half of the building remains vacant and still has Harvest Moon’s crescent moon paint design.
