Pho Long, is now open at 8613 Olive Boulevard in University City. As Gut Check learned when we previewed Hooked last month, the restaurant has been ready to go for a while but still awaited the approval of its liquor license.
One of Gut Check's trusted operatives dropped off a copy of Hooked's menu, which offers several seafood salads (shrimp, crab claw, fish of the day), calamari, skewered and coconut shrimp, and a crab cake.
Entrées include scallops, calamari, shrimp and salmon -- no further
description is given on the menu-- each served with your choice of mixed
vegetables, seasoned rice or French fries. There are three seafood
pastas (shrimp, clam and a combination) and six po' boy sandwiches, beef
brisket and fried oyster among them.
According to Hooked's
Facebook page, the restaurant is open Monday and Wednesday through
Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and for dinner 4:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m. It
is open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday and closed Tuesday.
attempts to reach the restaurant to confirm its posted hours have yet to
be successful, so you might want to call first (314-997-8886) before
