You've probably heard of OpenTable. They are a leader in the field of internet dining reservations and recently polled over 5 million diners to find out their favorite 100 U.S. restaurants. Foodies, a growing group of people who are dedicated to enjoying delicious food and drink, voted Cochon of New Orleans onto this prestigious list.

Cochon has frequently been rated in the top of New Orleans restaurants and is no stranger to international recognition. In 2007, they were nominated for "Best New Restaurant" by the James Beard Foundation and were "one of the top 3 restaurants that count" according to the New York Times. This year, their Chef Donald Link was up for the National Outstanding Chef Award, another award given out by the James Beard Foundation. The award is considered "the Oscar of the food world".
While Cochon (meaning:pig in French) does everything well, they specialize in Cajun fare using only the best and freshest local ingredients. If you like entrees featuring the pig, and topped with an array of sauces and spices, you will be in good company here. The same applies if you like the sound of "Oyster Bacon Sandwich". You can visit them for lunch or dinner on Tchoupitoulas St. in the Warehouse District of New Orleans.
