We walked 2 blocks from the WWII Museum for lunch. There as a line almost out the door when we arrive - but it moved fast. We got the BBQ Pork Sandwich, Cold Roast Beef Sandwich, and macaroni & cheese. The food was good - the pickles were very good! The mac and cheese was very creamy and had a nice crust on top. The "Carolina Style" BBQ sandwich was good, but it should not have BBQ sauce on it to be a real Eastern Carolina BBQ - vinegar is all you need. The roast beef was lean and very tender.

First off, You really need to love pig at this Butcher. The meats here are like nothing I have ever experienced in the United States. Locals and visitors alike line up for their amazing sandwiches and sides. You can eat there, or do take out.

We arrived on Sunday lunch just as the staff were starting to serve 2 very large tables. Probably 40+ . As a result, our initial order got lost in the chaos. However, the staff were honest and apologised.

Cochon is our perfect experience. A big open contemporary space serving ace food and drinks. We enjoyed 2 appetisers and one main. The wood fired oysters with chilli oil were sublime. The bowl of gumbo had me searching for recipes later that day. The shared special of the day was porchetta with roasted peaches. The accompanying grits was a little strange but, hey! Highly recommended.

It is outside the quarter, but worth the walk for the muffalettas, Cubanos (my personal favorite) and grilled pimento & cheese appetizer. The sandwiches are huge, so unless you are starving or only going to have one meal for the day — sacrilege in NOLA — I highly recommend sharing lunch.

Stopped for lunch here as it is very close to the WW II museum we had just visited. Had heard of this place from some other folks so decided to try it out for myself. You order you sandwiches at the counter and they deliver them to your table. They also have an actual butcher shop and tried the deer sausage which was VERY good! The Le Pig Mac sandwich is kind of like a Big Mac with pork instead and was mouth watering. The service is excellent and the food was brought out very fast as well. Was not aware Anthony Bourdain had recommended it, but now I see why!
