The King’s Road is an unlikely setting for a theme restaurant celebrating New Orleans in all its sinful glory, but drop by most nights and you find this good-timing eatery packed to the rafters. Wipe-clean chequered tablecloths, plastic lobster bibs, wackily titled dishes, a Tequila-heavy cocktail list and thumping live music all say ‘to hell with it’ – a message reinforced by the gut-busting menu. It may be all about size, but the kitchen knows where it’s at: extra-meaty St Louis-style spare ribs come with BBQ beans, butter-drenched whole lobsters are sweet and juicy, and the bone-in rib-eye is timed to perfection. Elsewhere, chicken ‘tenders’ (goujons), lobster rolls and crackly pork scratchings with apple compote also get noticed. Happy-go-lucky service is right on the money, although not everyone is sold on the restaurant’s ‘dark corners’ and high-decibel soundtrack.
