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.

Good mufuletta's, BBQ pork, good beer. Bought a few T-shirts to bring home. Service is quick, not too much seating. Cochon Restaurant out front would be better if had more time.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

Was there for a group dinner, so it was a pre-selected 5 course meal that didn't disappoint! Gumbo was fabulous, pork loin amazing - just so disapointed to have missed some of the great items on the regular menu!

“Fun Place, Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

This is a must visit in New Orleans. A great and relaxed atmosphere with some serious food. Pork-centric as the name would suggest with local preparations. Not sure it's the best place for a date... good for friends and clients, but maybe perfect for a night out with the guys. Think pork and beer at its highest levels ever.

“Taste sensation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Liver-cheese and hog jowls on toast - wow, like a meat dessert!
The mushroom salad - we loved it so much that we made our own version for dinner last night
Cochon - pulled pork like never before!
We were painfully full afterwards, but our waitress insisted we try a new aperitif, Catdaddy (Carolina Moonshine). It tasted like a liquid biscotti. I just ordered a case from our local liquor store to give out to friends. Soooo good, a must try!
