The best meal I have had in a very long while. Started with the fried alligator tail. So good we ordered a second with the meal. Bake oysters , fried boudin, ice cream sandwich trio.

Before we visited this restaurant, we had printed a paper menu in the hotel and had done some research on it. Following the recommendation from a blog article, we ordered grilled oyster, pig face, pig guts meat ball, catfish, salmon, and croc meat. All of dishes are full of arts. We really enjoyed all of them! The decoration of this... More

We ate here not exactly knowing what to expect. We were not disappointed. The Cajun crab rice was to die for, and my husband enjoyed his crawfish pie. We chose to go with the small plates because we weren't terrible hungry. Not to worry--there was plenty of food. My husband drank beer, which he usually does, but I went with... More

Gorgeous place, great service, cool ambiance, incredible food, great wine list! It's modern and delicious. I had the Braised Beef Rib, which came on a bed of grits and was topped with a superb mixture of okra, squash and tomato and garnished with fresh basil. Absolutely outstanding!

Ummmmm I don't even know where to begin. Maybe with the char-broiled garlic oysters?!? The BEST oysters I've ever had in my LIFE! Pork cheeks are unbelievable as well. Holy cow if you don't make it here then you've missed a staple New Orleans restaurant!!

We actually mistakenly ate here (trying to find Cochon Butcher), but it was a surprisingly pleasant mistake! We had the fried alligator, onion braised beef, and gumbo = ALL amazing. Service was great, overall a good dining experience.

Everything here was lovely, from the alligator (dense, but not rubbery like I imagined it would be—plus, it’s fried and topped with spicy mayo, so there’s no way it was going to be bad) to the chocolate hazelnut pudding. But our favorite thing was the pork cheeks. Tender, flavorful, lovely. The restaurant is a nice blend of causal and upscale.... More

Was in New Orleans for a conference and we had an exec lunch at Cochon - great choice, the atmosphere was friendly and sophisticated and our waiter took us on a captivating adventure through the menu - we were so taken with his descriptions we ordered a number of different plates to share - try the alligator bites, the...

We visited this restaurant because the other portion of the place, Cochon Butcher, had a line out of the door. It was a better than a case of Serendipity as the sit down venue was tranquil and the food proved to be exceptional. Noting the service was not being pressed, our server had time to explore the menu to us... 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.
