The old Pizza Hut location has taken on a new life as a chicken and seafood destination.

After we got the news last week of Guy Fieri opening a ghost kitchen in Colonie, we have another newcomer on the Capital Region restaurant scene to pass along. Union Bonchon Chicken & Cajun Seafood is now open on Union Street, according to a Times Union story.  If you check out their menu, there is a wide variety of items including snow crab, shrimp, fried fish, mussels, and crawfish, If land creatures are more your game, there are plenty of options for chicken wings.

As far as restaurants go, seafood is one of the few dining categories that is a little under-represented here in the Capital Region. So if you are a seafood fan, Bonchon is a very welcome edition. Plus, we also got word last week that another new seafood boil restaurant is coming to Crossgates Mall. So as of today, the seafood scene in the Albany area is starting to boil over a little bit, just in time for the warmer months when the time just feels right to dine on creatures of the sea.
