You Had Us at Slow-roasted Pork Shoulder

Mussels with tomato-leek saffron broth, grilled baquette $10
Haricots verts salad with toasted almonds, shallots, tomato, mustard-vinaigrette $8
Field greed salad with tomato, red onion, goat cheese, red-wine vinaigrette $8

Slow-roasted pork shoulder ove lentils du Puy, roasted Brussels sprouts, poached egg $20
Steak frites with red-wine sauce and aoili $23
Wild striped bass over sweet pea risotto, saffron buerre blanc $22

Herb-roasted game hen with potato gratin, braised Swiss chard, preserved lemon sauce $18

Cochon's dishes sound hearty and soulful, but their flagrant abuse of hyphens has us worried.
