Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski’s rustic-chic restaurant within a renovated warehouse is a tribute to all things porcine. Using locally sourced hogs and seafood, they deliver inventive Southern Cajun–influenced delights such as pork cheeks with baby limas; Louisiana cochon with turnips, cabbage, pickled peaches and cracklins; and smothered loin with apples, caramelized onions and cheddar. Don’t miss the wood-fired oysters with chile garlic butter. 930 Tchoupitoulas St.; 504-588-2123; cochonrestaurant.com.
