We loved this place!! Ate there twice during our stay. You can't go wrong with any menu items. We especially liked their Duck Pastrami Sliders, the Buckboard Bacon Melt and the Morrocan Spiced Lamb

I only went to the restaurant on the last day of my short visit to New Orleans. I wish I could have come earlier. It is a thriving place with lots of tables. Since my hotel was very close by, I took the food with me and ate at the hotel. I had the day's special, boudin with tomatoes. It... More

First place I wanted to go when we got in town so I made my way over there without a reservation and was told that it was a 15 minute wait. Sat and waited and watched no one gets sad at any of the empty tables for over 10 minutes until finally the party of five walked in off the... More

My wife and I enjoyed a truly fantastic lunch at Cochon Butcher. I had the ribs and make and cheese which were mouth watering good. My wife throughly enjoyed an order of pork belly cheeks. Highly recommended during your visit to NOLA!

We ordered take out: muffuletta, pig Mac, turkey and lamp sandwiches. This was the best I've had in a week! Highly recommend. (Call order in is good advice. )

We chose the deli for a fast meal over the restaurant which one day I hope to go. Deli (butcher) was super busy and we were lucky enough to get the last table. I got the pork belly sandwich which was pretty good, pork was a little dry. My friend got the side of mac and cheese and it was... More

Great place in Nola! It was a quick drive from the French Quarter. The food and atmosphere were awesome. I especially enjoyed the potato salad. I just wish I would have saved room for dessert!

Decided to order something different this time, but was not disappointed. anything from the charcuterie board in a sandwich is great, as is the roast beef.

We stopped here for lunch before walking to the WWII museum. We all enjoyed our sandwiches and the carrot cake. Also, the roasted brussell sprouts were also a favorite. Great location for food before or after the museum.

We stopped in here after spending the day at Lake Pontchartrain and returning our rental car to Hertz, which is located just up the block. The atmosphere is great, with a view of the kitchen and open fire. We just ate small bites, including ribs and chargrilled oysters. Both were tasty, although the ribs were a little tough. We enjoyed... 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.
