Do you have a secret desire to load up on pork? Do you love good, filling, southern food with a cajun influence? Then you definitely need to check out Cochon, recently named as one of the Top 100 Foodie destinations in the U.S. by Open Table.
Cochon prides itself on locally or regionally sourcing as many of their ingredients as possible. The only local restaurant to make the 2012 cut (what were they thinking??), Cochon is located in the Warehouse District at 930 Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans.
Never one to resist the draw of a foodie award, I took an out of town friend to Cochon this past weekend. Suffice to say, it was spectacular! From the braised pork cheeks served on a bed of grits to the fried alligator with chili aioli, the small plates were definitely the way to experience as much of the menu as possible.
For reservations at Cochon (highly recommended), call 504-588-2123 or reserve your table online.
