"Porky goodness" figures in many of the "utterly amazing" sandwiches, charcuterie and sides at this "wonderful smelling" Warehouse District Cajun sandwich shop and wine bar that's a "cheaper alternative" to Donald Link's Cochon next door; it's impossible to "order everything" in one sitting, so fans take full advantage of the "minimal" space's butcher counter, often "going home with more" sausages, cheese and pickles "than they can use in a week."
I was so excited to eat here. Cashier was helpful and friendly and so was the bartender. Floor staff were were less than friendly. I got the pulled pork sandwich and a side of Brussel's sprouts. The meat was perfectly cooked. The flavor was average. The sprouts had delicious seasonings but they were way too mushy. I sent them back and was offered no substitute. With this experience I find the place over priced and not a place I'll visit again.
So this is a TWO part restaurant. We went to the Butcher part and it was well worth it. the "PIG Mac" is amazing and the Bacon Melt is the best I have ever had. The mac and cheese is actually made from natural cheese unlike other places that just use Velveeta. You can't go wrong here for lunch.
I would strongly recommend to my friends and family and will go again.
I got their muffaletta here and brought it on a flight out of NOLA with me. It was basically a 5 pound sandwich that was super filling and tasty and transported very well. It was a bit on the salty side with all the cured meats and olive spread on it, but I loved it! It was a touch pricey, but was probably good enough to share between two people with smaller stomachs/appetites.
They're clearly passionate about their food, and it shows. This place is great, good drinks, comfortable atmosphere, and plenty of things to keep you interested. There's usually a line, so make sure you have someone in your group find a table! It's somewhat pricey, sanwhiches are a bit more than what you'd want to pay.
