Enjoyed a great meal of sandwiches that all were made to perfection. Appetizer was meats and some exceptional spreads. Maffallufa was excellent and great meats. Good tip- go a little off hours in afternoon. Around 1:30-2:00 and you will get right in and get a table and not a long wait. This is a great local take.

My wife and I are lunch here today and they had really good sandwiches. When they say it is a butcher, it truly is. When we arrived, there were men behind the counter slicing up meat. We had the hour boudin small plate and it was pretty good with the mustard and pickles but not quite what we expected. Their... More

When planning our vacation I had this place on my radar and also Cochon which is next door. But that night we decided to go to the Butcher which worked out best for us. The meats are all prepared by the Butch and they are beyond DELICIOUS! Cuban Sandwich - Amazing! slightly different twist with the smokiness of the meat... More

A large group of conference attendees went to the Butcher last night and it was excellent! It would not have been my first choice since I am not a big meat eater out as well as being gluten intolerant but I was so impressed! I ordered a turkey sandwich without bread. The turkey was delicious and it was topped with... More

This is a super casual deli/sandwich type place. Walk in, place your order, take the number to your table if you can find one. Prime time at lunch can be difficult. We were early on a Friday. Found a table. Shared a charcuterie plate which had all kinds of good stuff. Split a couple other sandwiches, roast beef, muffuletta, corned... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, my wife and I stopped in for lunch yesterday. The warm muffuletta and the macaroni & cheese side were as delicious as advertised. WARNING: There is a sister restaurant, Cochon, that we accidentally walked into; this one, Cochon Butcher, is around the corner. It's a warehouse-district restaurant with exposed brick walls, high ceilings with exposed... More

Sandwiches are really special with the highest grade meats you can imagine We had a pork belly sandwich and a roasted chicken sandwich that were as tasty as heck , and could be the best in all of Nawlins. It's owned by the... More

Great spot for some good home style New Orleans food. The boudin was really good with a nice smooth taste. Marinated Brussel sprouts and pickles and plenty of cheap choices. The house cured meats range looked really cool and no doubt taste good. Good atmosphere and friendly staff top off a good value meal.

So, the order taker was rude, the waiter brought out our appetizer before the drinks and when asked for our drinks, he took so long that we had finished the appetizer. The entrees were awesome and unique, but the server never checked on us again. If the service was good, I'd go back in a heart beat but the food... More

Cochon captures the true essence of Cajun and Southern cooking. Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski bring their love for southern Louisiana foods to every plate at Cochon. Donald's experience cooking with his family at their homes in Crowley and Rayne allow guests to share in his passion for real country and home cooking. The food is focused and simple, featuring roasted meats with natural sauces, homemade sausages, and fresh local seafood. The menu compliments the rustic, yet contemporary setting of the dining room. The Bar at Cochon features signature cocktails as well as the classic libations of New Orleans. A diverse beer selection with an emphasis on local micro-brews offers a cool contrast with the sometimes spicy cuisine.

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
