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.

“Unique menu and cool atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Food was very unique and very good. Service was excellent. Recommend a reservation, we went for a late lunch and lucked out with a seat overlooking the chiefs. Very cool.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Everything was fantastic, but the person i was eating with was so startled by the pig head in a bucket clearly visible from our table she couldn't finish her food.

“Yummy sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We came here at the Suggestion of a local on our flight in. We almost didn't make it since it is a ways away from the quarter. So glad we did. It is refreshing after eating New Orleans style food for 3 days. Sandwiches are big and the sides were fantastic especially the Mac and cheese! I really liked the slaw as well. They have cocktails too! Wish I would have tried a hot pressed sandwich but the turkey was very good.

“Delish-Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Cochon Butcher was highly recommended by a friend who said he just kept going back there. I can see why. It's very casual, order at the counter. Sandwiches, sides,etc. I had the Cochon Muffaletta and we split a great salad. Really, really great sandwich! Next time, I've got to try their potato salad. Don't miss this when you visit NO!!
