Wednesday proved to be a day of "old favorites" as we went to Cochon for lunch. The six of us arrived some 15 minutes before our reservation time, giving us just enough time to order cocktails, before we were informed by the hostess that she had our table ready for us (early), and so the meal began.

We ordered all of the starters and the boucherie plates, along with two sides (the greens and the creamy grits). Of the starters, it must be said that all were delicious, but the standout was the wood-fired oysters with chili garlic butter -- stunning! And even my wife, who is so phobic when it comes to reptiles, she freaks out when one appears on the television screen, enjoyed the fried alligator with chili garlic mayonnaise (perhaps it was revenge!). The crawfish pie, the fried livers with pepper jelly & toast, and the grilled shrimp with roasted cabbage, pickled cauliflower & jalapeño mayo were enjoyed by all, as well.

For the next round, I'd say it was a tie between the smoked pork ribs with watermelon pickle and the fried boudin with pickled peppers for the favorite of the bunch. But this doesn't mean that the paneed pork cheeks with creole cream cheese grits & dried figs, the fried pork sausage with smashed black-eyed peas & pickled vegetables, or the boucherie plate of house-made rillettes, head cheese, and cured salumi were far behind. Indeed, there was no overwhelming favorite, but the ribs and boudin rose to the top, so to speak.

Cochon has been around for a while now, but still remains on target and in top form.

Delicious!
