    Two totally different restaurants. That being said, I'd probably go with Cochon.

      I really like Liuzza's (Just be aware there is :Liuzza's and Liuzza's by the Track two totally restaurants) I am not a huge fan of Cochon, but it is still good. I guess it all depends on the type of food you are looking for.

          Liuzza's has great and hearty Italian and Creole comfort food and serves beer in HUGE frosted mugs which is a real treat. I love Liuzza's for simple Italian, but prefer Mandina's, which serves some similar types of cuisine. Liuzza's by the Track is more of a neighborhood hole in the wall, which just happens to serve the most incredible BBQ Shrimp Po boys and wonderful daily specials (including great salads as well as soups, and fairly inventive cuisine for a corner bar. I prefer Liuzza's by the Track, but Liuzza's is really good as well depending if you prefer Italian/Creole. (LBT is only open until 7 or so and Liuzza's closes at 10)

      I loved Cochon! If you like pork, you'll be in heaven.

          Haha! I didn't even realize what I wrote. Yes, I believe I would classify Cochon as hog heaven. :-)

        Not sure how late your lunch is. Liuzza's will serve pretty much around the clock. I am not sure about Cochon, they may close between 2 and 5 or so. However, the Butcher is open all day (and right behind Cochon).

          Cochon definitely stays open straight through.

            Liuzzas for the best sandwich in the city in my opinion. The mighty Frenchuletta.
