930 Tchoupitoulas St. New Orleans
While the multitude of pork dishes (cured, smoked, pressed etc.) served up at Cochon, are irresistible, they by no means reflect the wide array of nouveau-Cajun food served here. James Beard–winner Stephen Stryjewski has transformed this Warehouse District restaurant into a must-visit for every foodie in New Orleans. Start with the fried alligator with chili garlic aoli and top it off with the cabbage braised pork cheeks or the heavenly rabbit and dumplings. For a quick break, try Cochon Butcher Shop, located next door, for a mufaletta, a popular Italian-inspired New Orleans sandwich topped with olive salad, salami, capicola and provolone.
