We had our best meal here. I ordered the Fried Oyster BLT. My husband ordered the Rabbit Stew. We were not disappointed, rather, we were blown away at how delicious everything was. Based on how good the lunch was, we then ordered dessert of Blueberry Skillet Pie with Cream Cheese Ice Cream. I wish we could go back.

Simple, yet incredibly tasty. Alligators and Cochon were superior. Nice atmosphere, very prompt and attentive service. To be repeated for sure.

We ended up walking here from the French Market and it was worth the walk. The meat and cheese chaucaterie was amazing. From living in the New York area surrounded by excellent pastrami sandwiches we didn't think it would compare to them but Cochon pastrami sandwich was impressive!

I love the grilled chile butter oysters. The bread was delicious too. My husband ordered the catfish which he absolutely loved.

One of our tour guides recommended this restaurant as we passed it on our tour and we were definitely glad we tried it. We didn't have reservations but they were able to take us in after a very short wait, maybe 10 minutes. The food was excellent and portions were good. I tried the butterscotch root beer and now crave... More

My girlfriend and I took a trip to New Orleans and decided to save this restaurant for Saturday night. It was tip top from the time we entered the restaurant. I strongly advise calling ahead or making a reservation on Opentable first. It was basically full but we were seated promptly. We started with the fried alligator and pork cheeks... More

Don't get me wrong. The food is good, but the servings small and the price large. Food is true to his cajun roots, but I just can't get over the small portions.

We decided to have dinner here, last minute, after being rained on all day. I knew about it, my brother read the rave reviews and it was just off the streetcar line (a 10-15 minute walk). It was packed when we got there, but decided on seats at the open kitchen. We watched food go in and out of the... More

An institution in New Orleans and on the tourist map. Seating is a bit cramped (the norm for a restaurant this popular I guess) but not so bad that you cannot have a private conversation. They are known for their oysters but we decided to skip those, and instead opted for a selection of small plates – the alligator, boudin,... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
