Why visit Downtown Jersey City for seafood? Just BeClaws

JERSEY CITY Brothers Nambinh and Francis Tran expected customers to need to warm up to their new Vietnamese Cajun seafood restaurant before it really caught steam. They were wrong.

"People say there's a slow period when you open a business until you advertise, find clientele, and create your brand...but every single night so far it's been a full house," said Nambinh, 25, the youngest of his family and co-owner of recently opened Just BeClaws.

"Since we're new, it was hard to gauge how much product we needed at first. During the grand opening week we sold out of everything so we had to close a day early," he said between laughs, "we had to close Sunday because we sold out of everything by Saturday."

The rural and nautical theme of Just BeClaws, which officially opened in May and seats fifty, is made up of wooden tables and chairs, as well as (what is likely) Jersey City's first "boat bar."

A narrow hallway greets customers as they enter the restaurant giving the impression one is boarding a fishing liner with small metallic ship-window frames containing quirky seafood-related phrases like "I'm on a seafood diet. I see food and I eat it" and "But First, Let Me Talk a #Shellfie."

Customers can expect fresh produce with daily imports of king crab and snow crab arriving from Alaska, as well as mussels, clams, oysters and shrimp from New York, Louisiana, and Ecuador. Read more

Nice.
TheFang: yeah, i gotta agree with jehu here

Darna: we had a lovely shat with mrs binky this morning

stephen: Hmm I'm as clueless as you are.

Darna: could someone please splain to me why a person in a gang is called a gangbanger but a gangbang has nothing to do with gang activity?

shahaggy: can't believe I'm saying this but +1 jehu

[02:58 PM] MCA: it's not stalking, it's caring enough to find out things she won't tell you herself

[01:35 PM] shahaggy: fine but jehu's correct

TheFang: as much as it pains me to say, jehu might be right.

One time, I hired a monkey to take notes for me in class. I would just sit back with my mind completely blank while the monkey scribbled on little pieces of paper. At the end of the week, the teacher said, "Class, I want you to write a pape
