Plaquemine Lock Presented by Bocca Di Lupo founder Jacob Kenedy, Plaquemine Lock serves the best of New Orleanian cuisine. Specialities include oysters, boiled crawfish and gumbo (soup) along with po'boy sandwiches filled with fried shrimp, blackened chicken, slow-roast beef debris and fried green tomato with cheddar. Further dishes include blackened grey mullet, dirty rice and pork boudin balls while desserts are indulgent with pecan pie and strawberry and cream pie among the options. Beers are British but the cocktails are all Louisianan. Housed in a former pub, the restaurant, which takes its name from the waterway that Jacob's great grandfather constructed in Louisiana back in 1909, retains the original bar, wooden fittings and pub atmosphere.
