Cochon is tucked in what feels like the far edge of the burgeoning warehouse district. Just a few blocks past the more developed blocks with Emeril's and others. Very attractive interior space but we chose to sit at one of the sidewalk tables. Shared 5 small plates with the wood fired oysters, eggplant and shrimp dressing, insane ribs with pickled... More

We were glad we'd booked a couple of weeks in advance - the restaurant was busy and people being turned away all night. Cochon is more cosmopolitan than the traditional New Orleans restaurants - less formal (don't wear a tie gents!) and with a more adventurous take on Southern fare. My smoked ham hock was melt in the mouth (and... More

Our meal at Cochon was superb. It's a bit of a walk from the French Quarter - located in the warehouse district - but it's not a bad walk straight down near the Riverfront. As a bonus - tons of art galleries are close by. The food here is delicious - and they have a very interesting drink menu including... More

Pretty pretty good food in NO. My family and I enjoyed the charcuterie and Creole mains. It's hip and a great place to enjoy a meal. Drink selection pretty good and the staff professional. I would go back here.

Just visited this restaurant last week while in New Orleans after hearing many great things about it. I was not disappointed! My guest and I had many small plates including the grilled oysters, barbecued shrimp, and Boudin Balls. We also had the Bucherie platter, and my guest had a Catfish dish. Everything was exceptional, keep up the good work.

Normally, a reservation would be required at Cochon but we hit at just the right time and 5 of us squeezed around a table for 4. We had the gumbo, beans and rice, catfish, fried pork cheeks, braised short rib with white bbq sauce and the wood fired oysters. All of it was excellent. Dessert was equally as good with... More

Recommended by the hotel concierge, this was our best surprise this trip. An easy walk from the WWII museum, we had great service and some of the most unique food ever. I had the smoked ham hock with fried chicken livers as an appetizer. Make reservations if possible

Our intention was to visit Cochon Butcher but we neglected to, quite literally, turn the corner and ended up here...we were NOT disappointed. The chile butter baked oysters were insanely good - tangy, unctuous, velvety...just amazing. The mushroom salad topped with fried lemon slices, beed jerky and vinaigrette was light and flavorful. To top off the meal we enjoyed a... More

Drama free: Service: all our staff were characters in a good way. Genuinely interested in you enjoying yourself and your food. Food: The ribs. One of the best things I've ever eaten. DO NOT skip the ribs. Salty, sweet, hot, smokey, tender, meaty, succulent, lovely ribs. Justifies being an omnivore. Fried chicken was 105% worth the wait. Space: The restaurant... More
