We stopped here for a quick bite on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered the pork belly sandwich and it was delicious. I also had a side of marinated Brussel sprouts. The sprouts were good. The food came out quick and the service was very good.

A co-worker and I were in town for a convention and stopped in for a quick lunch. The food was absolutely amazing and worth the cost. I had the spiced lamb flatbread while my friend had the macaroni and cheese and brussel sprouts. Everything was house made from scratch, full of flavor with no short cuts taken. The beverage options... More

Honestly one of the best--if not THE best--sandwiches I've ever had. The food here is simply delicious. If you're in New Orleans, don't skip Cochon.

I went to Cochon to escape the trade show grind at the convention center. I am really glad I ventured up the street a ways past Fed Ex. I had wood-fired roasted oysters with chili garlic butter sauce – awesome. Also had liver and onions appetizer quite good. Worth the trek!

This is just down the street from the WW II museum. You walk up and order from the counter the choose a table. The line was a little long but moved quickly. Try the butcher chips. They are house made potato chips and were great. I had the turkey sandwich and it was great. The staff was funky and friendly.... More

One of those places that is just so good! Casual environment, order at the counter and find a seat. Many delicious sandwich options. Delicious appetizer portion of boudin. Great grocery/souvenir shop to browse through after the meal.

An outside patio and a great interior at this excellent eatery. We shared an oyster and bacon sandwich that was truly remarkable. Then we shared the beet, fennel, mint, and pumpkin salad, and a whipped goat cheese dressing. OMG it was so delicious. The wine list is extensive and the choices great.

Finally had a chance to check out this place. I have been wanting to try it out for a while. I went in the afternoon for a sandwich and a beer, both were really good. The place is both a restaurant and butcher shop, selling meat prepared or in bulk. I really enjoyed my visit and I'm already planning my... More

Must try. The brisket was melt in your mouth so good. Loved The crawfish pie, wish we had ordered 2. The oyster and bacon sandwich is enormous and amazing. Cochin had the creamyest grits that I have ever eaten. Don't miss this place if you are in the area.

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.
