While waiting for everyone to arrive, we shed our coats and admired the alligator themed art in the restaurant, including this little guy. He wasn't featured on the menu as they haven't had alligator skewers available in months - though its still listed on the menu.
Since there were so many of us, only took pics of food easily within camera reach - I was too lazy to get off my butt to take pics hahaha! Several of use ordered the Grilled Crab Cake. Advertised as cornmeal crusted, with garlic and green onion cream, the crabcake was tasty, though it consisted of more seasoned cornmeal throughout (and not just encrusted) than actual crabmeat.
While the crabcakes were good, the saffron rice that came with it... was not. Well seasoned, the rice had one big issue - a good third of it was hard and dried out (the darker brown bits). Not just a bit undercooked hard, but scraped off the bottom of the pan after several hours on the back burner turning it into rock hard shards hard. If its been premade, don't scrape the hard bits off the pan, as it sure resembled leftovers from lunch service.
Again, didn't take pics of everyone's food. A few of my friends got the Satisfaction Plate, a platter with Louisiana Jambalaya, shrimp creole and red beans and sausage. There was a choice of creole sauce or tomato with tequila salsa. Forgot to ask which one he got, but since he was hungry, he found the combo tasty and polished it off.
Overall, with the poor execution, over/underseaoning, overcooking and puzzling service, LP has a long ways to go before it lives up to its motto of "fine Southern cooking".
