A new restaurant specializing in boiled seafood celebrated its recent opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday.
C'est Bon Crawfish in Youngsville held the ceremony Friday afternoon. The Youngsville Chamber of Commerce was in attendance and helped to celebrate the milestone.
The seafood restaurant officially opened its doors on January 14th and offers boiled shrimp, crab, and of course, crawfish.
Owners Keith and Kelly Broussard hoped to open their restaurant last year, but said the COVID-19 pandemic made it hard to get supplies, adding that supplies and shipments were often delayed. They decided to postpone the soft opening to January, and have taken the time since to train themselves and their employees on running the restaurant.
"Not being able to open last year kind of hurt, but we wanted to get our foot in the door immediately as soon as we could with the crawfish this year. It's been trying, but we made it work," said Keith Broussard.
And now, just weeks after the Broussards opened their doors, winter weather hit Acadiana, bringing ice and freezing temperatures that negatively impacted crawfish production. But the Broussards are optimistic, hoping the favorable first half of the year will be an indication as to what's to come.
"If that's any indication of what we have to look forward to, then I think it's going to turn out to be a really good year," Keith added. "We just need to get ponds warmed up again."
C'est Bon Crawfish is open seven days a week - from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 2 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Sunday. They're located at 3301 Chemin Metarie Parkway in Youngsville.
