A Fresh Twist On Classic Delta Food

Situated in the heart of downtown Monroe, Louisiana, on the scenic Ouachita River, Restaurant Cotton takes pride in serving up Southern Delta comfort food with a creative twist. It’s been said that food is a common ground, capable of creating a universal experience among strangers. At Cotton, we’re keen on creating a unique culinary experience celebrating the flavorful inventions of the Southern Delta (Northern Louisiana and Mississippi) using the best-quality locally-sourced produce and meats available. Although you may enter Cotton as strangers, we promise you’ll leave here feeling like family thanks to our warm ambiance and attentive wait staff.


Pay Us a Visit for a Signature Cocktail or Entrée

Open daily for lunch and dinner and for brunch on the weekends, you’ll find everything from Duck Wraps, Deviled Farm Eggs, and Scratch Biscuits among our succulent appetizers to Creole Catfish, Delta Shrimp and Grits, and Venison Meatloaf among our scrumptious entrées. We also offer an extensive selection of award-winning signature cocktails, red and white wines by the glass, and local beers on tap if you’re looking to make your dinner a livelier one tonight. Whether you’re celebrating surviving another 9-to-5 shift or one of life’s many special occasions with a private party hosted here, you can expect to dine in style at Cotton.

(Please note: Because we rely upon local meats and produce which may vary seasonally, our menus are subject to change without notice.)

Our Bar Program

Since opening in 2008, Restaurant Cotton has not only been at the forefront of modern delta cuisine but also as a cocktail institution, owed greatly to the owners’ love of classic cocktails and a staff of creative bartenders. Since then, we have evolved and changed but two things remain constant – our love for handcrafted spirits and food from the delta. Through the years, we’ve maintained our commitment to exceptional experiences and a focus on hospitality and we hope you enjoy our interpretation of classic cocktails and our wine program featuring selections from America’s top producing appellations.

  • Award Winning Handcrafted Cocktails
  • Over 100 Wine Selections
  • 40 Types of Bourbons
  • 20 Types of Whiskeys
  • Variety of Craft and Domestic Beers on Tap
