The restaurant began with Austin-based celebrity chefs and James Beard Awards winners Tyson Cole of Uchi, Uchiko, and Uchibā and Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbeque in 2018, combining their love of Asian and Texas cuisine.

In those five years, LORO has expanded to four locations across Texas, one in Houston and Dallas, and one in Austin. However, all four locations will be participating in the crawfish boil on Tuesday, April 4 starting at 2 p.m.

Guests can purchase a plate of crawfish, with each one priced at $18 but come with a pound of crawfish, corn, potatoes, and Thai sausage, with each location putting its own special spin.
