The last time I was at Butcher (2+ years ago), it was still a single storefront with a few high top tables out front. What a wonderful transformation and metamorphosis Butcher has gone through. Easily three or four times larger than it had been, this hustling lunch place has a unique and good vibe. The combination of the wonderfully different... More

We both had very good sandwiches, and reasonably priced for the quality. Le Pig Mac and the Moroccan Spiced Lamb were both very good, as were the Brussel Sprouts. Nice open and casual atmosphere.

I'm gluten free so this place was great, I had BBQ pork with the Brussel sprouts and I loved them! So much flavor and the portion size was perfect!

The Bartenders and our Server were lovely, but the busser Erin didn't smile at us once and was very unapologetic when we found meat in what we thought was a vegetarian dish. Although the bill was adjusted for the confusion, we were really put off by her blasé and curt manner; something we haven't seen much of in the service... More

I had eaten here a few years ago when It was a butcher shop with a few tables. Now it is a big restaurant, but the food is still very good and shows some wonderful creativity.

My visit was with more than 30 other coworkers who were served a buffet. While my meal was flavorful, it lacked originality. However, the sorbet made up for it.

What a great place for lunch. This is an order and find your tablr kind of place and with a group of 8, I was worried how we would find space to sit, but a server quickly helped solve the problem and all was good. Busy busy place. Delicious food. Although our hotel concierge was the one who recommended the... More

The atmosphere is casual and interesting. The food was sensational! Try the brisket sliders. They are too die for! The muffuletta was also good but the Brisket was wonderful and enough for one person. This is a must visit!

This is one of the really great places to eat in New Orleans. Cajun and old southern style in a nice setting. Crowded at lunch, you might have to wait, but not with reservations. I loved their bacon and oyster sandwich, my wife their Cajun crawfish meat pie. They have a separate open air rear area for butcher shop or... More

Our first night in NOLA, we were looking for easy and relatively cheap. We stopped in here and the muffaletta was delicious. My daughter had a grilled sandwich she loved. The sides were very good: we tried the potato salad and the mac-n-cheese. Desserts went home in a to go bag!

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.
