Great place for lunch

Great place for lunch. The place was packed but we were able to get in order and eat with no problem thanks to the very attentive and friendly staff. They seemed to never stop but made sure every customer was happy and taken care of.

We liked the location that was in walking distance from our hotel; the food was great and the beer was tasty.

The staff were great. There was a waiting line when we arrived. The greeter was very welcoming and advised a 15-20 min wait - nope, it was 8 mins (I just love under promising and over delivering). The servers knew how each dish was cooked and when we asked for an opinion their recommendations were spot on. Our group of... More

Best oysters ever. Recommend to stick to appertizers for more flavors and variety. Ribs were out of this world and try also their mac & cheese.

Crawfish tail pie, gator tails, unique cocktails, and a fantastic oyster and bacon sandwich. Delicious all the way around. I sat at the bar to avoid the wait and received top notch service.

Although I thought Cochon Butcher was good, they were not generous with the meat. I had a pastrami sandwich for $12. It was so small, not like what you would expect. It was very good though. Also tried a bag of their homemade chips - very good, too! I bought bacon pralines to take home and ate one on the... More

We had lunch here. You order at the counter and they deliver to your table. Great choices and we all ordered something unusual. Grandchildren had man & cheese and it was was too spicy for them. The rest of us had great sandwich that we shared between ourselves. This is located on a side street in the Art area and... More

One of the best meals we had in New Orleans. We went for a late lunch, but it was still plenty crowded, as this seems to be a hot spot in the Warehouse District. I had a turkey sandwich, which sounds plain, but it was the best turkey sandwich I've ever had.

We are so glad we found this restaurant, they had everything that makes a restaurant great - delicious local food, friendly efficient service, good vibes, etc. We went twice we liked it so much and if we lived in the area we would be there all the time.

Great variety on the menu. Get there early as it fills quickly. Service is fast and my Spicy Moroccan lamb flatbread was delicious. House made potato chips are among the best I've ever had. Had a small problem with the bill and they fixed it quickly and with a smile. If staying in the Warehouse district, it is an easy... More
