Description: Cochon captures the true essence of Cajun and Southern cooking. Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski bring their love for southern Louisiana foods to every plate at Cochon. Donald's experience cooking with his family at their homes in Crowley and Rayne allow guests to share in his passion for real country and home cooking. The food is focused and simple, featuring roasted meats with natural sauces, homemade sausages, and fresh local seafood. The menu compliments the rustic, yet contemporary setting of the dining room. The Bar at Cochon features signature cocktails as well as the classic libations of New Orleans. A diverse beer selection with an emphasis on local micro-brews offers a cool contrast with the sometimes spicy cuisine.

This is a must do in New Orleans. The food is delish, the servers are helpful and interesting, and it's a great atmosphere. I came home with pickles and their yummy sweet potato habanero sauce. You could grab a sandwich here before walking through the industrial district and then on to the WWII Museum. Yummy!

I'm a huge foodie and we were simply passing through New Orleans on our way to FL, so this was the one place I chose. It did not disappoint. First thing, the amazing aroma upon entering is staggering. Ordering was a bit awkward as the menus are scattered above in two directions so check the menu before you arrive (I... More

Every time I'm in NOLA, I make it a point to eat atleast 1 meal here. My favorite is the pork belly sand or Buckboard bacon melt. It's always top quality and very good.

I had never tried many things on the menu so decided to be adventurous. The pork belly sandwich was awesome! My taste buds were dancing in my mouth. The boudin was also another one of my favorites. It had a hipster vibe to the decor. Can't wait to go back.

I had a chili cheese dog that was amazing. The house made chips were so tasty. It was standing room only when we arrived but by the time we paid and were looking for a seat. It is an eat and go place but the quality go the food was top-notch and worth the wait and $$$.

Since we had never had a muffaletta we decided the best place to try one would be here based on the reviews. I am not a fan of olives, but this sandwich was yummy. Also tried the bacon praline. All the employees were very friendly. Highly recommended.

Little pricey for sandwiches considering that you pay for a sandwich and then sides but completely worth it. The muffaletta was perfect as well as the roast beef with horseradish that my wife had. Service was fine but nothing super special as for that you would need to go next door to Cochon at twice the price. Make sure to... More

It was so good that we ate there twice during our visit. You walk to the counter to order then have a seat and the food and drinks are delivered to your table. I had never eaten a Muffaletta before so I ordered their Cochon Muffaletta. It was amazing. A must have. Their Mac and Cheese was also very good.... More
