Plaquemine Lock

Now Open

What they say:

From Bocca Di Lupo to a new Louisiana spot inspired by his family history, Jacob Kennedy as opened a second restaurant in London. Having converted a former traditional canal-side boozer in Angel, the chef has turned it into a mix of British pub and American inspired eatery. Named after the lock his great grandmother opened in Louisiana, Plaquemine Lock is a family-inspired affair as the chef's mother has painted murals for the restaurant.

What we say:

With dishes such as fried oysters and bacon, crawfish pie and spicy shrimp, Angel's latest opening is packing a punch. Plaquemine Lock retains its English pub charm, but serves a menu that's inspired by the multicultural cooking of Louisiana. The cocktail was also supposedly invented in the southern US state so expect a boozy affair of concoctions with a drinks list that includes a Hurricane (rum, passion fruit and grenadine) and Creole Bloody Mary. Beer is from local London breweries with one changing US special available on taps.
