Review on Plaquemine Lock
Housed in a former pub, Plaquemine Lock is located opposite the Regent's Canal in Islington. It's the second venture from chef Jacob Kennedy who already operates the successful Italian restaurant Bocca Di Lupo in Soho. Named after a small town in Louisiana this restaurant is dedicated to Cajun and Creole dishes. It has a colourful interior dominated by huge murals on the walls created by Jacob's mother Haidee Becker, alongside smaller paintings and pictures with some by Dr Bob Art, a New Orleans folk artist.
Open all day guests can look forward to starters in the shape of fried soft-shell crab amandine or beef yaka mein smoked brisket, egg noodle, Cajun spice, soy broth. When it comes to main courses there's fried chicken bisquit, grits and green tomato jam or Redfish court-boullion gurnard, creole tomato gravy and shrimp over rice. Pecan pie cane sugar ice cream or steamed persimmon pudding, served with cane sugar ice cream provide an happy ending to proceedings.
To accompany the food there's wine, British beers and all-Luisian cocktails served in a friendly relaxed ambience.
