Cochon is a must-visit when you go to New Orleans. Must. Ingredients are locally sourced and expertly prepared. The setting is casual and comfortable yet warmly modern. Dinner reservations may sometimes be difficult, but going for lunch is easy.
Fried alligator with chili garlic aioli ($10).
Charred onion and chile hush puppies with goat cheese cream ($8).
Smoked pork ribs with watermelon pickle ($10).
Louisiana cochon with turnips, cabbage, and cracklins ($23).
The eponymous dish! So juicy and fabulous! Are you drooling? You should be!
Pineapple upside-down cake -- cornmeal cake with coconut-lime sorbet and dulce de leche ($8).
A little sweet. A little tart. A lotta good to end.
Don't miss Cochon.
