If you're wanting a great NOLA experience this is probably not the first place you should visit. Food was ok and it was very crowded. Lunch at Peche was a better Link choice

Grabbed some sandwiches for dinner. Pulled pork was excellent. Little expensive for portion size. Everything in NO was about 3-4 $ more though.

It is great place to get some fine food. If I ever get back to New Orleans, I will surely eat there again.

This is a great place for a sandwich at lunch. First class meats and bread treated right and served fresh. The case meats are all top shelf too, but are they pricey. Look for $10.00 per pound sausage and mid $20's for pate. Good, but expensive.

After hearing about Cochon and Cochon Butcher on a foodie network, I was excited to visit. None of the accolades can impart even half of how amazing this food is! It is obvious that people who love food and its preparation are working here. We tried as much as possible, in a wide range. I had a simple cold roast... More

Super service and Epic food. We came here after visiting the WWII museum, just a couple of minutes to walk from there. Would recommend eating here for sure!

The food was prepared well, but we was looking for authentic creole and the food here was more gourmet style. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and professional. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere for dinning out with friends and family or trying to impress a date

Recommended by a number of people we went for a late lunch, and it was worth the walk in the rain to get there! Order at the counter for food and drinks and either take away or eat in. Full table service from the bar if you eat in. Service is great and the food is fantastic. As the name... More

I came here expecting great charcuterie and what was supposed to be the best muffelatta in the city. Instead, there was no such thing on the menu. Apparently, they had just opened this place up. The mistake was mine, but Google led me down the garden path on this one. We left without eating.

Cochon Butcher was within walking distance of my hotel, so I chose it - based on reviews - for a quick lunch. When I entered, the counter staff was less than friendly. It was my first visit, so I was unfamiliar with the menu. The gentleman at the register seemed annoyed by my questions and while no one was waiting... More

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.

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.
