“Mudbug” Coming to Crystal City

A new bar/restaurant is taking over the old El Pollito space on 23rd Street in Crystal City.

The place will be called “Mudbug,” according to a state alcoholic beverage application advertised today in the Washington Post.

What Mudbug will serve is anyone’s guess, but the word mudbug is a Creole slang term for crawfish. That seems indicative of a Louisiana/Cajun theme (sounds familiar, right?).

One of the business’ principals, Measar Saengplai, is a bartender at Rosslyn’s Cafe Asia, according to his Linked In page.
