We needed a nice quick pic-nic. Ordered sandwiches that were perfectly wrapped to bring with us. It was delicious. I was actually sad I couldn't stay to eat at Butcher because there was a noce decor and ambiance. It seem to be a great place! Would definitely go back.

It's small delicatessen type restaurant, we went for lunch with no regrets the meats were fresh and delicious, There can be a wait but it's worth it.

I could live there. The selection and combinations are endless. Smoked venison sausage, pastrami, lamb... They probably had tongue and aspics if I'd asked. Homemade everything. Sauces that compliment but don't overpower. Pickles that are sweet, sour, crisp, fresh tasting. This place has it all. For pork lovers, it's a heaven. I'm a bird, beef, and game guy and loved...

Walked up the street to this place during a business conference near by. It was fantastic. Had the Carolina pulled pork sammy. Tasty home made bbq vinaigrette sauce and the bun was melt in your mouth fresh. I wanted to return but sadly didn't have the time.

We did both Cochon Restaurant (in the front) and Cochon Butcher (directly behind it, don't confuse the two). Both were amazing, but Cochon Butcher had the best sandwiches - we ordered the Muffaletta (a very Louisiana sandwich), the duck pastrami sliders, and got some deli stuff to go. Great selection of beers and cocktails as well. You have to order... More

The Butcher came highly recommended to us by the staff at the hotel we were staying at so we walked a few blocks over to indulge ourselves. For starters, nearly everything on the menu comes from local farmers, so you are going to get yummy and fresh food. (Also, be prepared to spend a little more bucks because of that,... More

Very tasty sandwiches and a great selection of beers! They were very knowledgeable about what they sell and were very helpful in suggesting places for me to visit after dinner too

We had the Muffelata and some Duck Pastrami Sliders with a side of Marinated Brussel Sprouts. I'll have to say the duck pastrami sliders were delicious. The brussel sprouts were great as well. The muffelata? Best in town! Meats were amazing, and the bread was perfection! Never had a better one anywhere! Have to try the Sweet Potato Habanero hot... More

We visited this restaurant by chance after visiting the WWII Museum. We ordered a sandwich and sliders - both excellent. There are limited choice on the menu but they all look delicious!

Heard many kind words and read the reviews which drew me in while I was in the neighborhood but I found the service to be less than warm and food disappointing. Wish I had stopped at many of the other places in the neighborhood instead.

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.
