Cochon Cajun Southern Cooking
Location & Contact:
Cochon showcases the food Donald Link grew up preparing and eating at his grandfather's side. A descendant of Germans of Acadiana, Chef Link brings his love for authentic Cajun cuisine to New Orleans.
Chefs Donald Link and Steve Stryjewski buy first-class pork and other meats, and perform from scratch the time-consuming, careful process of turning it into andouille, boudin, cochon de lait. It's been so well received that Cochon has added a combination butcher shop and deli to its operation. With the boucherie as a center, they built a contemporary Louisiana-style menu around it, and the result is not only delicious but saturated with a rare kind of local flavor.
The bar at Cochon boasts an interesting variety of bourbons and local beers. Traditional southern cocktails like the Mint Julep are available as well as updated versions of classics like Cochon's Lemonade. Several brands of moonshine are available for guests desiring a true "Southern experience".
The wine list features a well-rounded selection of glasses and bottles with many available by the half bottle to accommodate more than a taste. The eclectic collection of old and new world wines centers around choices to complement the spicy food, with a concentration on value.
The restaurants rustic space is accented with contemporary furniture to create a warm casual atmosphere. An open kitchen and the Chef's Counter offer a view of the action and seating for adventurous diners. The dining room features large windows overlooking Tchoupitoulas Street, charcoal concrete floors, wooden tables and chairs handcrafted by a local artisan, and a etched steel bar.
