Any feedback on this restaurant? Wanted to try it in Montreal but never got there.

    Au Pied de Cochon in Atlanta is not related to the restaurant in Montreal.

    It is, however, a branch of a restaurant by the same name in Paris which in turn belongs to a group of brasseries in Paris owned by Les Freres Blanc.

    It's the hotel restaurant for the Intercontinental Buckhead, and is, generally speaking, no great shakes. It's pretty, though (assuming you like chandeliers made of glass fruit and huge paintings of cherubic pigs), and convenient if you're in the area.

      Thanks for the reply. I live in midtown so doesn't look like I need to make the trek up to Buckhead for it!

        Unless you want to try the pig's foot :-)

        This restaurant is open 24 hrs and I hear it gets crowded around 3am for their breakfast buffet (on weekends). As far as dinner goes, the food is very mediocre and pricey for what you get. I definately do not recommend this place.
