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.

Been coming to NOLA for years. How the heck have we missed this funky little spot not far from the Quarter. A meat-lovers dream. Excellent sandwiches and cocktails/beer, what more can you ask. One of our new favorite, casual places. We will surely be returning.

Brought my daughter for great food at reasonable prices. It did not disappoint. I had the mouth water pork belly sandwich and grilled greens and she had pimento cheese sliders and the Mac and cheese. The restaurant was expanded since the last time I was there, maybe 3x the seating as before. About a 5 minute walk from St Charles... More

What a fantastic casual dive in a great part of town. I am a fan of all things pork, so this restaurant (and Cochon) is right up my alley. She smell of smokey goodness hits you as soon as you walk in. The meat counter looks great, and the menu is varied in style and flavor profiles. The highlights for... More

I stopped here for lunch during a recent conference at the NO Convention center. The food was very high quality, much butter than was available at the convention center, while only being about 5-10 minutes from my conference and about the same price as the boring food in the convention center. The place was a little loud, with a lot... More

Simple setting - your order at the counter, get a number, and they bring you the food. Great choice of sandwiches, sausage, cheeses, etc -- duck pastrami sliders are scrumptious. Good beers and wines make this venue a great find, in case the restaurant next door is full or just otherwise.

We have been in NOLA for about 6 months and have stopped by Cochon's several times. The menu I s always different, always good, and always pulls us back. I could go on and on, but it is worth a visit. Also, it is not far from Poydras street, and Tcopotulas and is an easy walk down Tcopotulas, as an... More

WOW this place first of smells amazing and second tastes amazing. We had the smoked turkey sandwich, pastrami reuben, potato salad and mac and cheese. I really wanted one of each item on the menu but that will just have to wait until next time around. I want to try Cochon the restaurant and their sister place Peche because we... More

This is the little brother to Cochon, serving sandwiches and some smaller plate type items as well as having a deli style counter with some specialty meats and house cured stuff for sale. Really like this place for when I don't want to commit to a full meal at Cochon. If you are a pork belly fan try the pork... More

We visited Butcher based on reviews and were not disappointed. I had the muffaletta. It was very old-school with the improvement of having fresh, house cured meats. That made a HUGE difference. I'm not a huge meat eater but these slices were so good, I had to eat them out of the 3rd quarter as I could not finish it... More
