No visit to NOLA is complete without a stop to Executive Chef Donald Link's funky sandwich shop/butcher shop/wine bar located smack dab on Tchoupitoulas. Butcher (one of the five restaurants in the Link Restaurant Group) is playful and whimsical and is a great place to grab a quick lunch before strolling the streets.
With daily lunch and sandwich specials, Cochon Butcher has something for everyone. Grab a Le Pig Mac, Cochon's homage to that titan of fast food burgers; you know- the one with the special sauce. Cochon's boudin is probably the best east of the Atchafalaya and Link's affinity for the link is clear.
