Cochon vs Herbsaint

Hi all,

I will be in NO for only 3 days and have time for one dinner out. I would love to try either Cochon or Herbsaint but am very much on the fence about which to try. After browsing around the board, my impression is that people think highly of both but maybe lean a bit more towards Herbsaint. I'd love to hear which you think I should pick if I can only do one. Also, I may be able to stop in for a quick lunch or drink one other day, so if that is the case, which is better for the lunch/snack option and which is more worth the full dinner?

  1. Herbsaint.....and it ain't close. Then do Cochon Butcher for your lunch/snack.

      1. Ok thanks- you all made my decision easy! Herbsaint it is. Also, we will be staying near the convention center for a conference, so if anyone has suggestions for easy walkable destinations to eat, especially breakfast, please let me know.
