Great Place for Lunch

Five friends had lunch here. Short wait times, had to grab a table. Excellent sandwiches. Superb brussel sprouts. So happy they have "Mexican" coke, with real sugar rather than corn syrup, hard to get in the U.S. Friendly service.

My wife and were staying around the corner and needed a place for a late lunch, the hotel recommended Cochon. Wow, what a find. Tired and starved we brought our fussy 18 month old and our 6 year old who is so picky he won't eat sandwiches or Mac N Cheese. After a well needed Old Fashioned with house marinated... More

This is my 3rd time to the butcher this week. In a city that has more restaurants than most, it is hard to find a place that has the levels of consistency and food that has so much care. Any of the sliders are off the charts. The boudin which is a local sausage with spicy mustard is off the... More

Freakin' bananas. So delicious and affordable. We ordered ribs, beef cheeks, side of lima beans to share, and sherbet for dessert. Hands down the best lunch I've ever ordered in a restaurant. We popped in from the WW2 museum about 2pm, and the meal was astonishingly delish. Waiter said we had just missed the line out the door for their... More

I wanted to get a sandwich at Butcher - I had read a number of reviews about their wonderful sandwiches - we didn't realize upon arrival that they are 2 different establishments. We walked into Couchon which is located on the corner and did not notice the "Butcher" sign down the street. Couchon was pretty good - the server was... More

We visited this restaurant, which is near the convention center, during a convention we were attending in New Orleans. It was recommended by the staff at the hotel we were staying at. The line was out the door so it's obviously popular. We were with a party of six and all of us got the same thing - the pork... More

Absolutely delicious, as were the homemade potato chips. Everything looked so yummy, I wish that we could have purchased some things to take home!

I have only ever ate here for lunch, but that means nothing.. The food is wonderful and very tasteful. My favorite thing is the Mac and Cheese.. It is like no other.. The only downfall is the pricing in things, but you get what you pay for and man is the food wonderful!!!

Cochon Butcher was right at the top of my list of places to visit during our stay in New Orleans, and it just happened that we arrived during Mardi Gras, threw down our bags at the Sheraton, and walked a few short blocks on a sunny, warm day, to Cochon Butcher. And, man, are we glad we did. We ate... More
