By Kat Stromquist
The upcoming double Newsweek (May 24 & 31) name-checks Cochon, in an article about the profusion of pig parts on high-end menus.

NYT on NOLA Eats
New york Times restaurant critic, Sam Sifton, finally wraps up his NOLA work a formal article today. The first is an ode to the food here, not enlightening, but enjoyable piece talking about guys named Lagasse and Besh. Still, props are deserved for his attention to the oft neglected Vietnamese influence. The fusion of Vietnamese and Cajun culture is further explored in a must-read piece by John T. Edge, who provides insight even for locals.
