Great sandwiches...even greater sides

The sandwiches are some of the best you'll find in NO, or anywhere else for that matter. The sides are phenomenal. The brussel sprouts are a must try! They are so good I could eat them every day as an entire meal. The mac and cheese is fantastic as well. A short walk from the convention center. Do... read more

Great place for anyone enjoying swine....savory and salty flavors. Great dishes and execution in a chef-driven environment. Went to Cochon Butcher the next day for lunch and was also fantastic.

We stopped in here for lunch. The muffaletta was huge and really tasty. Husband had the pastrami, which he raved about. Homemade pickles were a treat. Service and atmosphere were outstanding.

My daughter and I had lunch at Butcher today because I had read in a New Orleans travel book that their muffulettas were excellent. The book was right. I have had a muffuletta from Central Grocery, which I liked, but comparing theirs to Butcher's is ridiculous. Cochon Butcher is a restaurant/butchery, and the meat used on the sandwich was fresh...

I ordered take out (most do here - there are very few tables) and it was fabulous. One of the best sandwiches I've had - period. Can't say enough about this place other than 'just go'.

This is the sandwich shop of sorts for the Cochon restaurant, where you order at the cash register and sit at any seat where your order will be brought to you. They have a good selection of all things smokable and other delectable deli type fare. But when I'm getting a sandwich in NOLA, it has to be the muffaletta... More

Love the decor and feel of the restaurant. Cashier/order taker was less then enthusiastic. We each got a smoked turkey sandwich and the roast beef sandwich. The turkey was good but could have been spicier. The roast beef was great. The wait staff was good about checking back with you to see if you needed anything.

While attending a conference at the convention center I walked to the restaurant for lunch. Excellent sandwiches and sides, so much better than the offerings at the conference center and so close by.

One of Donald Link's restaurants this is a relaxed snack / tapas style restaurant with a NO / French tip. Excellent staff and service with reasonable prices. If you want a more refined meal next door is another great restaurant also owned and run by Donald Link called just Cochon (pig). They also have a shop selling superb meats, sauces,... More
