My better half and I have been to Cochon at least a dozen times--basically every time we have come to NOLA in the past six years. It is the ONLY place we have been to every time we come, and it is the place we ALWAYS make sure to take any traveling companions to if they have never been there.... More

I had heard some fabulous reviews about this place; from magazines, on-line reviews, and food shows on TV. All raving about the food, especially the pork cheek appetizer. They were absolutely right! The food is a miracle of perfectly combined flavors. The rabbit & dumplings as well as the ham hock & beans sent you to heaven. We could not... More

I hadn't been to the restaurant since they doubled it's size. Restaurant now feels like more of a tourist food mill. Food is still good and interesting, but quality slipped a bit. The server was very disappointing when he actually showed up. The back waiter was more attentive but the server sped/mumbled his way through items we asked for descriptions... More

I was out at lunch looking for a sandwich and decided to try Cochon Butcher. I reached the restaurant not aware the restaurant and Butcher were two different places but settled in at the chef's bar overlooking the kitchen in the restaurant section. Other reviewers complained about the location but I walked over from canal st and did not feel... More

My favorite restaurant never disappoints! Very busy on weekend nights usually. Staff is extremely generous and friendly. Sit at the kitchen bar for a complementary experience! The cocktail I have arrowed in my pic is the best cocktail in the universe! The Jenny Diver Mule! Try the Boucherie plate. It comes with head cheese and everything is made from in... More

We almost didn't make it to Cochon. After several days of eating and drinking our faces off in New Orleans I was getting bloated and cranky and could only imagine eating a salad, I should have known that what I really needed was a big dose of vitamin pork! Luckily my wife has super powers; she can both tolerate me... More

Pork cheeks outstanding as well as the rabbit. Six of us tried virtually all of it, but bailed out on dessert. Casual atmosphere in a very tasteful restaurant. Perfect knowledgeable service. Loved it and will be on my list every trip to NOLA

There certainly are fancier places in NOLA but I cannot imagine a better overall experience. The lively vibe, the outstanding friendly service and the extensive wine-beer-cocktail offerings all complemented a fantastic menu of delicious food. Starter was oyster-bacon pie (unique - highly encourage you to try it), mains were ham shank with pinto beans and smoked brisket with horseradish potato... More

Two foodie friends separately touted Cochon as a New Orleans "must" meal. Our four-day trip was characterized by delicious, even innovative cooking and warm, enthusiastic service. Cochon was the only disappointing meal of our trip. Everything was well prepared. But I expected more; something out-of-the-box. Appetizers were good. My fried rice with blue crab was tasty. Another's mushroom salad was... More

So this was our second dinner in NOLA. The smoked pork ribs with watermelon pickle was a great app. Nice flavors and texture on the ribs - the perfect toothiness. The pork cheek country captain with raisins, turnips & almonds turned out to be a winner too. Mains included the louisiana cochon with cabbage, cracklins & pickled peaches as well... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood 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.
