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.

After trying to visit this gem and accidentally visited sister establishment Cochon - which was a VERY happy mistake, we ate here on 7/15 for lunch and were NOT disappointed. My daughter had the Muffaletta and the housemade chips and I had the Guido with marinated Brussels Sprouts. All were amazing and we got to share our lunch space with... More

Get here early if you can and enjoy some great low-frills fare in a hopping atmosphere. The energy here is contagious and the quality of the food is up to the standard set by Cochon. Sandwiches and small plates rule the roost here and the pricing is very reasonable for the quality of preparation. Food quality is 5 stars, but... More

We spent 5 nights in New Orleans and we came here twice because it was so good. I had the brisket sliders on the first trip and an outstanding bacon sandwich on the second trip. Just be aware that your clothes will smell like delicious smoke when you leave.

All sorts of other meats available Their smoker sits in plain sight. When opened, all sorts of sausage , brisket , etc aromas waft out. We love the Cajun/creole food, but modern bistro outstanding. Great break... More

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.
