Pork Feast

I have participated in butchering a hog before and we ate everything but the tail (well my parents did). Tonight the whole pig was available on the menu! This was one night that my hubby, although sharing, over ordered. We had Couchon, greens, cucumber salad, shrimp and eggplant dressing and Lima... read more

Cochon is a carnivore's palace, as you would suspect from the name. I am torn in reviewing the restaurant because it is a place that truly embraces the hoof to tail approach, and our party are adventurous eaters. My issue comes with the concept of the preparation not the use of the meat. Go through the menu and see how... More

Tried a variety of food and it was all pretty good! The rolls were good! I had the catfish and it was quite tasty. The sauce was spicy!

We came without a reservation for a dinner, waited for about 40 minutes but it was worth a wait! The meal was excellent! For sure one of the best meals I had in a restaurant, we had paneed pork cheeks with creamed corn & shaved chilies for starter. Pork cheeks were an amazing surprise (I absolutely recommend it)! For main... More

Great Louisana cooking. Smoking there own meats out-back from whole hogs they purchase from ranchers they know. No imports needed.

We tried to go to Emeril's but it wasn't open yet so someone on the street recommended Cochon's and we were so happy. It has a very airy and clean and happy atmosphere and at 5pm there were already lots of people there which is always a good sign. We ordered the alligator app and it was awesome. Then we... More

We had the fried Alligator with Garlic Mayo (Good enough, with a gamey fishlike aftertaste, but I don't need to eat Alligator again). The Hey Jack is the BEST DRINK I HAVE EVER HAD! So different and tasty and definitely worth the trip there. I also had the short ribs with the Horseradish Potato Salad...awesome. Get there early, this place... More

I was only in New Orleans for a couple of days, and finding good places to eat was of the highest priority to me. On a strong recommendation from a friend who has frequented NOLA, I took a stroll a bit outside of the French Quarter main drag and headed out to Cochon. I have to say I'm glad I... More

Must like pig. That's a requirement for this restaurant. We had a great time here. The staff is great. We asked our server to help us choose (cause let's face it, they have a lot of yummy things to eat here) and her response was "I'm good at this game!" Great comeback and we can vouch that she is really... More

Maybe I hit this hot spot on a bad day. I have read all of the reviews and had high expectations as we live in Atlanta and go to many food to table trendy spots. The Pork Cheeks were wonderful, however, the gumbo was terrible, it had a weird taste and I should have sent it back. One of us... More
