Stopped by this restaurant for dinner with a coworker. Food was very good. We sat at the bar that faces the kitchen so got to see everything being made. The BBQ oysters were very good. We both had pig cheeks for dinner and highly recommend this dish. A flight of bourbon and good house wine rounded out the dinner. We... More

Love this place. Has a great New Orleans vine. Funky place with great food and drinks. I normally order anything with Bacon. The Brussel Sprouts are good too. I would suggest Butcher to anyone looking for a sandwich or snack.

I love everything I've ever had at this upscale deli. Great, freshly butchered meats and amazing sides. Brussels sprouts are out of this world. I love the casual dining room and the large open doors.

The atmosphere is casual and the staff is very friendly. The food was very tasty and came out pretty quick. The cold roast beef sandwich is a definite "yes"! The mac and cheese was good as well with a crust baked on top. The glass I had to drink from did have some lipstick on the edge, but was taken... More

This is the casual side of the Cochon restaurant next door. You order at a meat counter, are given a number, and sit down in a bar like area. Your food and drink order are taken to you. Cochon butcher is located about a five minute walk from the convention center, so the crowds for this place will depend on... More

We ended up at Cochon at lunch by accident. It had been recommended by our hotel but we hadn't planned on going. Then, we stumbled upon it at late-lunch hour and went it. FABULOUS food! The servers were also very nice. Great ambiance. The restaurant is pricey, but we felt the value was there so we didn't mind.

We had the meat plate - no cheese comes with. It does have good homemade crackers. Some very interesting treatments of meat-the terrine was our favorite. Good beer selection also.

This place had a wide variety of delicious sandwiches. I had the Buckboard Bacon Melt with collard greens and an iced tea. The sandwich was amazing and I also enjoyed the side of pickles. It’s a busy place so expect to stand in line and then also try to find a table. The turn over is quick so waiting for... More

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.
