This place was fantastic. I do not give many 5 star reviews, I feel most places could do something to improve. This place gets a 5 star review. It is just that good. Our table had the BLT, pork sliders, mac and cheese, and the chocolate cake. EPIC dinner. Superb food, great staff, short wait for food (regardless of the long line). A MUST for New Orleans travelers.

Mouthwateringly good. The muffaletta, while prepared untraditionally warm, and the pancetta mac-n-cheese were amazing. Even though I was full I couldn't resist the bacon pralines which were a great ending to my meal. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in New Orleans.

Now this seems like something I'm going to like, and keep liking, until maybe I don't like it anymore, or get bored. So far so good though. I haven't gotten bored of pork in 30+ years, so I think Cochon Butcher is safe. This is a really creative business, like many in New Orleans, but unlike quite a few, they have a serious focus on quality. It's purportedly a deli, or a butcher, or something along those lines; but upon closer examination, it's also a sandwich shop, a cafe, a gift store, and if you'd like to, you can treat it like a full-on bar, albeit with the greatest selection of bar food ever! They do unbelievable cured meats in-house. It's kind of their thing. There's a really nice-looking moisture-controlled cabinet over the kitchen workspace for air-drying hams and other creations, and it's cool to see the process at work. The coppa and prosciutto I got were possibly both my favorite ever. Given their mission in life, this fact alone gets them a fifth star. It's all incredibly fresh. I saw an order of fresh pork wheeled in while I was waiting for my order, and I marveled at the work and skill it takes to turn that raw product into the items for sale. That also tells you something about the atmosphere - it's a bit bustling to say the least. You're basically in their workspace from the time you hit the door; add in customers coming and going, and it seems slightly chaotic. I kind of love it though. It seems like you're right in the middle of genius being created. The kind of genius that tastes like garlic, pork, and the air of a spritely city. Every other bit of food they offer gets a similarly high-quality treatment. I picked up a jar of pickles and some (spicy!) chocolate-coated almonds with my order, and they were both amazing. I kinda don't want any other pickles anymore, ever. The muffaletta I took home was really good too. I'm a little partial to Central Grocery's original creation, especially the size, so I can snack on it for 4-5 days. . . . But the sandwich was as great as everything else I had from Cochon Butcher, if a slight bit short on the olive salad for my taste. I'll definitely be going back, and hopefully next time I'll snag a drink as well!

HOLY SHIT this place was amazing!!! So amazing that I have a foodie rule of never going to the same place twice while you are on vacation that we had to go back three times!!!! I had the special of the corned beef.... out of this WORLD!!! The homemade pretzels, the Brussels sprouts, mac n cheez, homemade potato chips, the lamb wrap you literally cannot go WRONG eating here!!!! The drinks are awesome too! The Trotters punch was insanely delicious!!
