Comedian and internet sensation, Kwaylon Rogers, popularly known as BlameItOnKway is gearing up to open the second location of his beloved restaurant, Krab Queenz. The most exciting part about it is that it’s making it’s way to the West Coast! Los Angeles, get ready because the Louisiana Seafood diner will open up in downtown LA right across from the Staples Center during the 2019 BET Experience! We caught up with the entrepreneur to discuss all the exciting details surrounding his upcoming opening!
Congratulations on the opening of the second Krab Queenz!
Thank you so much! I still feel like I’m dreaming. Not even a year ago, we opened up the Houston location and now we’re opening in LA… and during the freaking BET Awards weekend. It’s definitely God.
What made you want to tap into the food industry to open up this Louisiana seafood dinner in the first place?
I was introduced to Tonique through someone else in the industry. I had the opportunity to taste the food. We met again and started talking recipes. After talking to her and my manager/business partner Natasha, we decided to create an atmosphere that wasn’t just about great food but amazing vibes as well. The rest is history! We’re on our second location.
What is your favorite dish from the Krab Queenz menu?
HONESTLY EVERYTHING! But the Krab Legs and Daiquiris are our signature. We’re bringing exclusive items to our LA location as we have in Houston and plan on having future locations. We want our guests at each location to have unique experiences.
What can attendees expect upon going to the Grand Opening of Krab Queenz in LA?
Outside of authentic Louisiana flavor, superb customer service as well as great vibes, guests can expect to leave happy and full. We’ve of course invited some of our celebrity friends and the media for an added touch. But it’s all about the guests! I can’t wait to greet everyone.
The Grand Opening of Krab Queenz LA will take place on
Friday, June 21st at 1 PM at 1111 S Hope Street Los Angeles, California 90015.
