Wu’s has launched a brunch menu that includes a Bloody Samurai topped with an entire crawfish

Find Wu’s at 1714 South Boulevard, open Monday through Thursday (11 a.m.-11 p.m.), Friday (11 a.m.-12 a.m.), Saturday (10 a.m.-12 a.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m.-11 p.m.). Connect on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Wu’s, the newest venture from Bottle Cap Group, the minds behind places like All American Pub and Slate, has launched a weekend brunch menu.

In case you missed it, the restaurant is a take on “New Orleans meets Far East Asia,” and the theme is reflected in both the menu, which includes gator balls, gumbo, sushi and an Oyster Po’ Mi, and the décor – the building is crawling in alligators, Chinese lanterns and Maneki Neko, the waving fortune cat.
