Cochon Butcher is located in a quiet industrial area and in fact we found it by mistake (it was on our list for another day). When you walk in you might be tempted to label it as a hipster joint, it's not! The menu has amazing sandwiches, small plates and house made meats. The combinations really... read more

It's just a wonderful place for delicious sandwiches and great beer. Even their pies and cakes are good. I think my husband and I have tried almost everything and always love it. The moroccan lamb is amazing. So is their buckboard bacon...yum! We eat here almost every time we are in NOLA. Actually last weekend, we ate on Friday night... More

This place is awesome. I had a pork belly sandwich and mac and cheese. The atmosphere is casual with seating at high tables. There was a constant flow of people both local and tourist. The food had a great flavor with a bit of spice like you would expect but not too hot. My business partner enjoyed is Cubano as... More

This was THE place according to my 17yo daughter. Excellent food and service, deep flavors, and a hip casual feel. My 5yo son pondered the crisp bacon crust on the velvety rich Mac n cheese. Great meal!

We've had lunch at Cochon Butcher. Soup of the day - chilled cucumber and avocado - and grilled okra salad with roasted barley were delicious. Same goes for the sandwich of the day - oven-cooked tender slices of pork dressed up with chili salsa and radishes. All in all, exquisite dishes and balanced taste. Atmosphere was light and pleasant.

It was good. Not my favorite restaurant or even in my top 10 in Nola, but it you are looking for something after the WWII museum, it is right down the road.

You need this item in your life. Go there and eat it. As a former 90's brainwashed fat kid. I loved big macs (and I still do...) Come hungry, and consider ordering two pork renditions of the cardboard clamshell encased American fast food classic. "Two all pork patties, special sauce..." you know you want to sing it.

I enjoyed the service at this restaurant. It was roomy and airy. They sat me at a little table and the server was there right away. Of course he took the drink order. Which is order 8am bottle drink with 4% alcohol. What's that gone do for me? Nothing but that was my fault. I had the salad of today... More

If you ever get to New Orleans you have to visit Cochon Butcher. The Restaurant has the best and most delicious food you could image. The Butcher, attached to the restaurant, is the best small plate assortment of goodies to please your taste buds. The Staff is helpful, knowledgeable and appeasing. The Butcher is perfect for breakfast and lunch. The... More

Stopped in for lunch here last month and got the Pork Belly with Mint & Cucumber on White sandwich with a side of their macaroni and cheese. Holy cow, it was fantastic. I look forward to heading back down to NO soon and another trip to Cochon Butcher.
