Go List: New Orleans

Slide 1 of 9


Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski opened Cochon in 2006 in a converted warehouse, creating the first great Cajun restaurant New Orleans has seen in years. The food, like an oyster-and-bacon sandwich, isn't fancy, just intelligently conceived and well prepared. We loved: Okra-cornbread fritters; rabbit and dumplings.
