You've been here before. No, really, you have. Cajun Bistro is housed in a building that has had more name changes than Sean Combs. Chances are you've eaten in at least one of its iterations. Within the last few years, the shack at the corner of Newport and Walnut has been the location of two Korean barbecue restaurants, some eatery optimistically called Happy Snacks, and a long-forgotten thing called Seoul Korean Cuisin. Now it serves shrimp, crawfish and crabs in the style of Boiling Crab and its copycats, steeped in a Cajun spice-spiked sauce with lots of garlic and butter. You can't blame it if it tries harder than most to distinguish itself from the pack. Supplied aren't just the usual crab mallets and bibs, but also gloves and complimentary hot crusty bread--the perfect device to soak up that sauce. They'll even take an instant picture of you to tack onto their wall in the hopes it will stay up there in perpetuity, or at least until the place changes again.
