cochon - warehouse district

ate at donald link's new warehouse district restaurant "cochon" today, it's blew me away, a true gem and hopefully a sign of a new renaissance of cajun & southern cooking in a post katrina nola

menu is nicely priced, where small plates are $7-11 and included rire-roasted oysters, smoked duck breast with beans, marn.mushrooms with fried eggplant, crawfish pie, spoon break, okra & tomatoes, and boiled shrimp

next was the "boucherie" menu, where also for $7-11 per plate, u could try items lilke fried boudin balls, spicy pork ribs with watermelon pickle, smoked ham hocks with cabbage, cochon rillette with mustard and pickles (mustard is home made)

soups & salads were $5-8, soup of the day or black eyed pea & pork gumbo, or cucumber salad in vinagar, fried chicken livers with pepper jelly toast, lettece & radishes with buttermilk dressing, and my favorite, the shredded pork salad with jalapeno-orange vingrette dressing

entress were only $ 12-18, mostly items prepared in the restaurants wood burning oven, items like rabbit & dumplings, cochon du lait with turnips, cracklins and watermelon pickle, briskett with horseradish and potatoe salad, or oven roasted whole fish, oyster and bacon sandwich, or catfish sauce piquant

local beers, micro brews, wines, nice classic southern tall drinks like mint julips and cajun bloody marys

nice menu, because u and yr guest(s) can order, share and sample a variety of menu items and now spend a million dollars

atompshere was open, airy and comfortable, overall cochon casual dining, southern classice in a sophisticated wrapper, but offers true to form souther & cajun classics had to find without road tripping to small southern louisiana towns

give it 5 stars...i think will end up a nola classic, well done
