Hooked is focused on seafood, offering everything from fresh catches of the day to fried oysters to jambalaya. The approach is straightforward but very customized, meaning you choose what seafood you want - blackened, fried, or grilled; if you want it as a po'boy, a platter, or over a salad; and what sauces you want served with it. In addition, they have a number of sides including honey-jalapeno hushpuppies and some non-seafood menu items like chicken and vegetable entrees and a variety of salads and sides. Everything runs approximately. $8-12 and it's BYO, making it an affordable meal out.

They're currently in their soft opening phase,  open from 11am-10pm every day.

Pinwheel Garden, another new restaurant opening soon in Lafayette, is located at 318 Communipaw Avenue close to LSP and across from the currently-under-construction OAK on Pine by Sam a.m.. Owned by two brothers, Pinwheel Garden is a dumpling and noodle shop with flavor influences from all over the world.

They will be offering handmade dumplings, a variety of noodles, and a couple of rice options (including a gluten free choice) and a number of different soups and sauces to accompany them. They plan to provide several vegan and vegetarian options as well as use local resources for ingredients wherever possible.

Pinwheel Garden is aiming to be open by the end of the month.

Stay tuned for more updates!
