Delicious sandwich!

I had the Cubano sandwich, and it was amazingly good! Very different than any other sandwich I've ever eaten. The smoked pork was so tender and moist it literally melted in my mouth! The jalapeño dressing on the sandwich gave it a nice little kick. My husband had the hot dog and loved it. It too... read more

I would consider eating here every day if I didn't have such a long list of places to try. We did the 4 minute walk over from the WWII museum at lunch and shared a muffuletta and coleslaw. The meats were tasty and I like how the bread was a bit thinner than the usual. Service was outstanding and they... More

The flavors of their food are heavenly. Even the desserts, memorable, outstanding. Now we hunger to return someday. Just loved their culinary treatment and results. True love.

Butcher has a great laid back atmosphere - you order at the counter from a blackboard menu, sit at small table and spend time with your friends. No reservations. No pressure. There is a wine bar in the back. They have lots of small plates and sandwiches. 6 of us came in for a early evening snack and thoroughly enjoyed... More

The Butcher is a star in the crowded New Orleans quick service restaurant scene. Quality meats, creative sandwiches and sides and really delicious drinks make this an excellent choice for lunch or light dinner. Order at the counter and take out or eat in the smallish dining area with high top bar tables. It's a fun, hip space with fun,... More

This was by far our favorite muffuletta, especially served warm. The BBQ pork sandwich was awesome too. No complaints on the food but expect a crowd. Order at the counter and they bring it to your table. Kids are okay in the less crowded times but realize that most of their tables are high-tops with tall bar stools. Our kids... More

We happened here on a sunny January around 1pm. It was Sunday and not busy at all. We sat outside and ordered our sandwiches and ate them with a perfect beam of sunlight hitting us from across the alley. There is no doubt that the sandwiches are great but something understated is their choice of local craft beers on tap.... More

Glad my boss told our team to go to this restaurant; 1) I don't think I would have on my own and 2) it was more expensive than our regular per diem when traveling. When I first looked at the menu I was tempted to suggest we go someplace else. But as I looked closer and talked to my co-workers,... More

The bbq sandwich and Greek style lamb wrap were spicy and awesome - great draft beers - charcuterie platter was lovely - hip and trendy and just a short walk from the ww2 museum ... Stand at the counter, order your food, grab a table and they bring it to you.

This was one of our first stops when we got off the plane in NOLA and it was so good, we stopped back the next two days as well! We tried the Bacon Melt, which was amazing and my far our favorite, Le Pig Mac, Boudin Sausage, Duck Sliders, Potato Salad and the Cajun Dog. Everything was outrageously good, but... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood 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.
