We've been to Cochon twice, either following or preceding a theater performance in Philadelphia. It's situated on the odd angled Passyunk Ave that cuts somewhat annoyingly through South Philadelphia. Parking is tricky, but that's typical of the best little BYOB's in South Philly. Pig themes...More

How can you go wrong with a BYO restaurant specializing in swine? Was so excited for my pork and pinot... Our appetizers were actually pretty good, especially they play on chicken livers in a French onion soup-the oysters were decent. The surprise came for our...More
