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.
This review is for Butcher. The little place on the side of Cochon. The staff was friendly, but the cuban sandwich was not so good. What is a cuban sandwich without pickles? There was way too much mustard and not nearly enough meat. One side of the pressed bread was thicker than the stuffing inside. I paid $10 plus tax and tip for a sandwich, and I was still hungry when I was done eating.
Arrived at Cochons saturday evening with a party of 12. The service was average at best..perhaps a bit rude. Took the better part of an hour before the food was served. The portions were small and expensive. Not the place to go if you're hungry. I had the catfish courtboullion. It was horrible. The chef must have used an overdose of anise.
Some of the other dishes..the roasted oysters, were good. The fried alligator was palatable. The rabbit and dumplings would have been good if there had been some seasoning present.
Overall, not a place i will bring the next group of my friends
Atmosphere was good....service not so good. Food was tasty, but portions were very small for the price. Appetizer plates could not have been smaller, not even enough crackers for the pate. Two cracklins on my plate..not enough. If you're hungry, it's not the place to go.
