Rainier Crawfish Seafood House will undergo a change in management and will now be known as Crawfish and Hotpot, located at 9447 Rainier Ave S in the Dunlap area, according to recent permit filings.
A representative of Crawfish & Hotpot or Rainier Crawfish Seafood House did not immediately return What Now Seattle’s request for comment.
While the shift to new management has yet to be confirmed in regards to timelines or any official changes, patrons are able to walk by to see a sign sporting the change with a notice of ongoing renovations.
Under prior management, Rainier Crawfish Seafood House’s concept was the fusion of traditional Southern Louisiana-style cooking with a unique Asian twist, aptly named “Asian-Orleans cooking.” The culinary team had crafted their own homemade food concept, emphasizing the use of fresh ingredients that were sourced daily.
For those who are unfamiliar, hotpot, also known as a steamboat, is a communal cooking style where diners gather around a simmering pot of broth and cook a variety of ingredients at the table. This interactive dining experience allows patrons to select their preferred ingredients, such as thinly sliced meats, fresh seafood, vegetables, and noodles, and cook them to their desired level of doneness in the flavorful broth.
