Went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff is polite and the food is great. Only draw back is that it is extremely busy, at least when we were there. The staff does not rush you but you feel the urgency from the waiting guests to free your chair.

This place was highly recommended to us by numerous employees at the hotel where we stayed and it did not disappoint! We were warned it can get pretty busy but we got lucky and didn't have to wait but a minute or so. We were also able to get a table to sit. My husband had a brisket sandwich (one... More

Loud, popular spot with cool vibe, long beer list and excellent whiskey selections. With a reservation, you can get seated in the center, all-time seem to be relegated to the perimeter. As a butchery, emphasis is on odd cuts of meat, some better than others.

you have to go in line to order your food, after that you have to find a seat. It was very crowded and it took awhile to get a table. The food was good, the service was ok.

We had several dishes and they were all amazing. The ribs, the gumbo, greens, the house made lemonade and the dessert. They were all to die for. They have outdoor seating but there's no shade so I imagine it would get warm fast. They also have a bar. The guys working there are all cutie pies so it makes lunch... More

In town for business and always seeking something new and locals recommended. This is the place!! Today I chose the smoked turkey sandwich with homemade chips. DELISH!

We stopped for lunch at Butcher, even though we understood they did not have po boy sandwiches. We had a Cuban, BBQ pork and the gambino. Everything was delicious. The Cuban had a great crunch to it. The BBQ pork had a nick kick and the gambino was excellent. The staff was great and the food was delivered quickly to... More

So in my second visit to New Orleans I said we had to go again! Just like before it was amazing!!!! The bacon melt with collards greens was amazing! Also the macaroni and cheese was outstanding! You have to order you food before you sit which was fine- Definitely a must if you go to New Orleans!

Cochon captures the true essence of Cajun and Southern cooking. Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski bring their love for southern Louisiana foods to every plate at Cochon. Donald's experience cooking with his family at their homes in Crowley and Rayne allow guests to share in his passion for real country and home cooking. The food is focused and simple, featuring roasted meats with natural sauces, homemade sausages, and fresh local seafood. The menu compliments the rustic, yet contemporary setting of the dining room. The Bar at Cochon features signature cocktails as well as the classic libations of New Orleans. A diverse beer selection with an emphasis on local micro-brews offers a cool contrast with the sometimes spicy cuisine.

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.
