    Saddle up to one of the shop's high-top tables and order one of Link's killer sandwiches (the house muffaletta and cold roast beef are recommended) and take a pound of andouille sausage to-go. Read more

    A meat-lover's paradise. Love everything at this place, but don't miss the Fried Alligator, Fried Boudin, Rabbit & Dumplings, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Read about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Though some muffulettas are served cold, at Cochon Butcher the bread is toasted and the meats are warm, held together with a generous spread of house-made, slightly briny and bright olive salad. Read more

    Had the pork belly sandwich. Really good, the meat was tender and the sandwich was flavorful. Wish it was a little bit bigger and had a different type of bread. The bread can get soggy fast

    Incredible house cured meats and sandwiches from Donald Link. Try the smoked pastrami by the pound. Eat the muffuletta, BBQ pork sandwich, and pretty much anything else that catches your way.

    Get the sweet and spicy brisket sliders, Brussel Sprouts, homemade chips and the must have libation, the Honey Boo Boo. Just delicious! Great ambiance and worth coming out to. Loved it

    Muffuletta, Cajun Dog, coleslaw and brussels sprouts were spot on. Be sure to try the sweet potato habanero hot sauce if you need an extra kick on your tasty sandwich. Great lunch spot in New Orleans

    It gets pretty busy here but worth the wait. It's owned and run by the next door restaurant, Cochin, where Butcher is the more casual restaurant. You can eat in or order to go. Everything is delicious

    Cochon Butcher isn't just a fantastic butcher shop and deli hiding behind the famed Cochon - it's home to crazy good small plates, a decent bar, and the best sandwiches in town. [Eater 38 Member]

    NoLa must for authentic Southern eats & soul food classics. Belly up to the bar for well-mixed cocktails, try the ribs w/ pickled watermelon & don't miss the Louisiana Cochon. You can thank me later.

    Muffaletta wich. Takeout lunch joint with an extensive sandwich menu. Around the corner from the famed Cochon, Cochon Butcher is a beer/wine bar and meat market combination in the Warehouse District.

    The best meal I had in New Orleans, and it was a simple sandwich. Pork belly on toasted white bread is transcendent. Service was spectacular. Go here. Don't fear the lines - they move quickly.

    This place is awesome. Tried the Brussels sprouts, Mac and cheese, cubano, muffuletta, and pork belly sandwich. All were great. Skip the muffuletta unless you love 'em. Other options are better.

    We had the Muffaletta and the Moroccan Spiced Lamb. They were both great! The Muffaletta was enough to share. Ordered a side of potatoes salad and loved it.

    Sit at the bar if possible & order as much of the menu as you can! Every last dish is delicious and if you're really nice the bartenders might buy you a round of the cleanest moonshine you can find!

    Elegant, classic & must on any NOLA itinerary. If you're in a large group, order a lot of small plates to sample all this James Beard award winning joint has to offer. Wash it down with a Tina Louise

    My heart weeps when I realize I live 1k+ miles away from here. At Cochon: cheeks, fire roasted oysters, and the perfect oyster bacon sandwich. Butcher is HIP- bacon melt was the stuff of dreams.

    My dinner was good, but the desserts are incredible. Get the banana pudding. Also, we sat outside and really enjoyed it. The ambience inside is casual and cool, but gets louder as it gets late.

    Butcher is one of my favorite places any time. Drop in for Sunday brunch, a lunch sandwich or late evening small plates. I have yet to have a bad meal here. Out of town guests love it as well.

    Try the hot dog--it is homemade with creole mustard, pimiento cheese, and chili made with black-eyed peas and homemade chips...absolutely incredible. Order a side of mac and cheese with pancetta.

    Overall phenomenal. Get the cochon for sure, it's like a pulled pork hamburger patty which has been pan fried. Great whiskey selection as well, which isn't so filling, so you can eat more.

    Get the Buckboard Bacon Melt with swiss, collards, and pepper aioli. The smoky bacon on this sandwich, cut lean with a tender texture, is a perfect representation of what this shop is capable of. Read more

    Star chef Donald Link's pork-centric Cajun restaurant serves traditional Southern cocktails like Sazeracs and mint juleps, small-batch bourbons and a selection of moonshine (i.e. corn whiskey).

    Looking for a quick dinner, off the French Quarter and walked into this place. One of the best decisions I've had in NOLA. Truly delicious meal and a great spot to just sit and enjoy.

    This eatery was one of the first to open in New Orleans after Katrina, and it's a joyous celebration of Louisiana's Cajun roots. Try the homemade andouille sausage in a traditional gumbo.

    The Elvis king cake is filled with peanut butter, banana and house-cured bacon and topped with marshmallow and traditional Mardi Gras decoration. A small pink pig replaces the baby. @Gambit

    If you want hip Cajun food without pretenses, the is the place for you. Try the rabbit and dumplings served in a cast-iron skillet: the perfect tribute to traditional New Orleans cuisine.

    Everything here is outstanding. Started with the smoked ribs, cabbage salad, and boudin. Followed with the cochin and smothered greens. Finished up with absurd carrot cake. This place is a MUST

    Cochon Butcher is a wonderland for meat-lovers, the Willy Wonka Factory of delicious deli-meats, and for in our opinion, the Cold Roast Beef sandwich is the golden-ticket.

    Great boucherie plate. Ask for the special bourbon, whiskey, and rye listing. Pineapple upside down cake for desert. Terrific service. What more could you ask for, great NoLa spot.

    Can't miss menu items: the fried rabbit livers with pepper jelly and mint and the okra. If you need a break from booze, great fresh lemonade and Abita root beer on tap.

    Everything here is good, but it's the wood-fired oyster roast that I never miss when I'm in NOLA. Perfect blend of heat and brine.
