This was my second time visiting Cochon Butcher and, once again, I was completely reminded of why this is my favorite place to eat in New Orleans. This time around I had the Duck Pastrami Slider and the Le Pig Mac. The Duck Pastrami Sliders were addictive! The bread was perfectly toasty and filled with flavorful creamy melted cheese and...

This is a short walk from the WWII Museum. We enjoyed a delicious charcuterie platter. Nothing fancy, but good food.

Tired of the expensive choices with poor service, quality and portions that conventions usually offer, this was a great discovery. Only a short walk from the convention floor.

Looking for lunch outside of the WWII museum and a volunteer sent us to this great, quirky place. Looked at Cochon's menu, a little more involved than we were in for, so ended up at Butcher, their "sandwich shop". What a fun place, counter service to place orders from chalkboard menu. Lots of interesting choices. I'm sure there there's a... More

You can tell as soon as you walk into to order and see the meat case full of awesomeness that you are getting something special. Everything is made in house and great. The beer selection is relatively small but excellent.

Cochon has a very inviting interior, I like how the restaurant is arranged. The wait staff was efficient, friendly and professional. Everything from the bread, fried alligator (appetizer) to the main dishes were delicious. In particular, I had the beef brisket and horseradish potato salad and it was excellent. The rabbit and dumplings was exquisite. The bartender makes a great... More

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!

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.

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.
