My friend made our reservations for Cochon in August....we head there this weekend....from NY.

any suggestions things to order?

The wood fired oysters sound awesome as does pineaplle upside down cake.
Any suggestions appreciated!!

  1. Drink some moonshine, the drink with Abita root beer and moonshine is delicious.

    I find the appetizers to be better than the entrees here. I tohught the Boudin Balls, the Gator bites (very similar to Nobu's rock shrimp IMO) and the ribs were all delicious. Thought the fish and the rabbit and dumplings were good. The creamed corn was insanely good as well. All in all a very solid, and definitely affordable, meal.

      We always get the small plates & pass them around. It's more fun than ordering entrees.

        the wood oven roasted red fish was the best red fish i have ever had, the onion braised pork cheeks with grits & horseradish herb vinaigrette was awesome. last time i went one of the special's was a flounder dish that was out of this world. they used to have red velvet cake with homemade cream cheese icing and orange marmalade that was the best RVC i have every had but i don't see it on the menu on line. i hope they didnt take it off the menu. ask about the special's.

    2. I love the pork cheeks.

      1. we always get the oysters, alligator (believe it or not) boucherie plate, gumbo, greens and I always save room for an abita rootbeer float- my favorite dessert ever

        enjoy and report back, please!!

          The pork cheeks were heavenly!!! i do not like goat cheese (i know i know) but the cheeks were divine. The Oyster NLT sammy was awesome too as was the cream corn!

            Thanks for getting back - our 2 trips have never dissapointed.

        2. The rabbit livers are the best thing on the menu. Not to be missed.
