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.

So good- we are Donald Link fans anyway and this was so yummy. If you are not a meat lover, this isn't the place for you. We picked up a to go order. Hot boudin, hoghead cheese with pickeled condiment goodness, le pig mac and moroccan lamb sandwiches. The food is so fresh, homemade and just so darn good. For... More

We tried the Moroccan lamb and the pork belly sandwiches and they were very good although on the pricier side. I believe you need to try them if you come to New Orleans.

I have eaten many muffuletta's in many places in New Orleans. Central Grocery may have originated this sandwich, however I believe than quality and quantity of meat is what sets Cochon Butcher far above it's competition. We were on our way out of town, so we ordered to go. While waiting, the butcher was kind enough to let us sample... More

Love this place. Found it by happenstance one evening after an event at American Sector. Sandwiches are fantastic! The breakfast egg sandwich was the best egg sandwich I have ever had. Casual dining, reasonably priced.

You have to go to this place to experience the smell when you walk in the door. I got the bacon melt and it was delicious. If I had stayed longer in NOLA I would have gone back several more times to try as much of the menu as possible. If I lived there this place would be destroying my... More

We had the Gambino and the BBQ pork sandwiches, they were perfect. Also added the charcuterie board because we were hungry. Absolutely fantastic. The mac and cheese is a beautiful thing as well. Not one thing is wrong with this place.

Some of the best sandwiches we've ever had! Simple delights done right!!! On top of that - everyone was very friendly and knowledgable about the food. I wish I had one of these in my hometown :)

The menu at this sandwich shop is very different from anything I have ever seen before. It has lots of unusual flavor combinations, but don't let that scare you away. Our party of 10 tried a variety of items and I don't remember one person saying they didn't like their choice. The prices are a touch on the high side... More
