Description: 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.

Went to Cochon but too popular. Wanted something quick and easy and not too heavy. Love this place for its creativity and sourcing of its ingredients. Favorites=Mac cheese,pickles, brussel spouts. Muffalta was good but he duck sliders better. Wanted to try the other sandwiches but not enough time.
Will head there again when in town to see what's next

About a ten-minute walk from the convention center area, this is a small shop connected to the Cochon Restaurant. We were there on a Saturday about 1 p.m., and the line to order was out the door, yet moved relatively quickly. The bigger delay was getting the food once the order was submitted -- we stood for about 30 minutes waiting for our name to be called. The seating consists of one long communal table in the middle of the restaurant, a line of counter seats along one wall, and a few tables outdoors. They were all taken, sometimes by people just waiting for their order, so we just got our food to go. We had shared a muffuletta, and had sides of potato salad and cucumber salad; all was quite good, but the sandwich's olive mix taste was quite strong. I agree it was a bit pricey for what you get.

When we passed the restaurant at other times, we didn't see the extreme crowds, so choose your arrival time wisely.

Always wanted to try this place after trying its big brother next door, Cochon, which was very good. Tried the muffuletta (warm instead of cold as in Central Grocery, very nice), pastrami (with sauerkraut on marble rye - my favorite), and a special of roast pork with chimichurri sauce - also very good. Also had a link of boudin for appetizer. All were well executed. Will return to bring a couple of the nearly two-feet long house-made Andouille sausage back to LA with me! Oh, a slice of the five-layer chocolate cake purchased to go turned out to be lethally good!

My husband had the pork belly sandwich which was not crispy, the pork belly was limp and while it had good flavor, it could have been a lot better if it had been better prepared. I had the roast beef with horseradish sauce and it was delicious! I would eat here again but it was very crowded and kind of pricey.

We didn't make reservations, but the staff were very accommodating at getting us a table. Gluten free options were excellent and my meal was excellent. My spouse's meal wasn't as good as mine, but still was good.
