I plan to eat at Commander's my first night and need good second night place. Would you recommend Cochon? If so, what's good? (What would you rec at Commanders?)

    We had a great meal at Cochon last April and have reservations there next Friday night. Our favorite appetizer was the wood-fired oyster roast and the cucumbers and herbs in vinegar was good as a salad. Louisiana cochon with turnips, cabbage and cracklins was great comfort food. Oven-roasted gulf fish "fisherman's style" was superb. We also had a side of smothered greens that were perfect. Be sure to report on your experiences at Cochon and CP (and elsewhere for that matter!). Bon appetite!

      Cochon is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the oyster roast, beet salad, livers with pepper jelly (either rabbit or chicken), rabbits and dumplings, in addition to those items listed above. They also have great desserts (pineapple upside-down cake for one). Don't miss out on the drink list too...

      Ate there last week -- oyster roast was great, and my husband had a super crawfish pie. If I lived in NOLA, I'd love this place, but since I get there maybe once a year (coming from the midwest) I want to eat seafood, mostly unadulterated. My fave is Galatoire's, where you can get oysters, crawfish, crab, drum, pompano, redfish, etc., cooked just right.

        Love it. Going there for a 3rd time this Friday - make it there almost every trip I take down to N.O.

        Don't miss the oysters and the louisiana cochon.

          Had the mirliton salad, gator, and the charcuterie plate - all good. Add a nice beer to compliment, and you're set.
