There are certain things you have to do in New Orleans, like hear a brass band, walk down Bourbon Street, and get at least one beer or cocktail to go. Eating the wood-fired oysters with chili garlic butter at Cochon is also on that list. This spot in the Warehouse District opened more than a decade ago and serves great modern Cajun food, like fried boudin and a massive pork shank topped with chicharron, but really it’s all about the oysters. Order enough that you don’t have to share, along with a few small plates if you need something else. Or just more oysters.
