Our first time at the new Au Cochon in Birmingham did not disappoint. French-inspired cuisine? Check. Handcrafted cocktails? Check. Great service? Check.
To start our experience, we perused Au Cochon’s cute cocktail menu. We opted for the Fraise Brazian and Holy Smokes, Batman cocktails. Both were unique and excellent.
To accompany our cocktails, we ordered Pomme Frites and Oysters, our latest Pic of the Week. We were given the choice of East Coast or West Coast oysters; we chose the latter after our bartender assisted us. The oysters were huge. We recommend mixing the horseradish creme fraiche and the cocktail sauce for the perfect bite (or slurp!).
Service was excellent and we were well taken care of.
Our bill ended up being less than we thought because we were there during Happy Hour. Although the menu is limited at that time, it’s a great opportunity to give Au Cochon a try.
