A new Cajun seafood restaurant is opening this fall in the former Ruby Tuesday on Wards Road.

Crab Du Jour, a chain restaurant which promises to offer fresh seafood and authentic recipes, will open in November at 3810 Wards Road.

Wen Zhang, a partner of the restaurant in Lynchburg, said the restaurant will offer dine-in services and a bar.

He said menu items will include crab and shrimp boil, fresh seafood and oysters, calamari and various types of fish.

He anticipates hiring around 30 people.
