Coquette is housed in a beautiful two-story building in the Garden District of New Orleans. Coquette offers innovative southern cuisine with an emphasis on locally sourced product. Chef Stoltzfus creates a playful menu, which changes daily based on the freshest ingredients. Guests have the option of a tasting or an a la carte menu, except from Wednesday when only the tasting menu is available. The current menu was inspired by Oktoberfest. All the dishes had reference to the German cuisine with southern twists. The service was warm and welcoming.
Cochon is is one of the most refreshing restaurants in New Orleans! It is located in the rustic, yet contemporary interior of a renovated New Orleans warehouse. At Cochon, Chef Link has reconnected with his culinary roots, serving the traditional Cajun Southern dishes he grew up with. He is working with locally sourced pork, fresh produce and seafood, focusing on traditional methods, while creating authentic flavors of Cajun country. Highlights include freshly baked bread, fried alligator, and the meat pie. Although chef Link's preparations are faithful to tradition he completes them with a modern twist, resulting in culinary perfection. His creations demonstrate remarkable balance in terms of flavors, textures, and temperatures. The atmosphere of the restaurant is vibrant and the service friendly and informal. A really unforgettable experience!
