Located just around the corner from Cochon, Cochon Butcher is a more casual sandwich and small plate shop for a quick lunch or dinner.
We know you’re probably wondering how two places with the same name are any different from each other, but Cochon Butcher truly stands alone.
The entrance to Cochon Butcher will land you directly in front of the butcher showcase and, if history is any guide, a long line of hungry locals. That is because Cochon Butcher is taking advantage of their butcher shop and churning out some killer sandwiches and small plates.
One of the Cochon Butcher team members was more than willing to nudge us in the right direction.
“The Charcuterie Plate is definitely something you should try,” he says. “It offers a big sampling of all of our favorites here.”
This impressive Charcuterie Plate features a wide range of meats, pâté, relish, pickles, mustard and homemade rustic crackers on which to spread whatever your heart desires.
Much like the Cochon restaurant next door, Cochon Butcher is not shying away from New Orleans classics. The sandwich menu features the Cochon Muffaletta made with house meats and olive salad. The Muffelatta also comes on a Sicilian roll. Try something out of the ordinary with the Cajun Pork Dog served with house pork on a rustic pretzel bun.
And don’t forget about the sides at Cochon Butcher. They are making house potato chips, hot boudin, mac & cheese and plenty of other Southern classics.
Make a note to ask about Cochon Butcher’s dinner specials that change every evening, including the Thursday “Sausage of the Week.”
