Cafe Taxim shutters in Palo Alto; Crawfish Fusion moves in
Uploaded: Aug 6, 2015
Downtown Palo Alto Turkish restaurant Cafe Taxim has closed, and will be replaced by a Bay Area Cajun-inspired fusion restaurant called Crawfish Fusion.
Cafe Taxim opened at 423 University Ave. in 2011. Kristine Huang, the owner of Crawfish Fusion in downtown San Mateo
and San Francisco
, has laid claim to the space, per a new Alcoholic Beverage Control license.
Crawfish Fusion serves Southern favorites like Louisiana crawfish, deep-fried oysters, blackened catfish, gumbo, shrimp and grits and beignets. There's also lobster, Dungeness crab, Cajun hot wings, stir frys, noodle dishes, BBQ short ribs and grilled fish and meats.
Huang did not return requests for comment. Stay tuned on further details and an opening date.
