New Orleans, LA and Nashville, TN
An expert butcher shop, a killer sandwich spot, and a lauded bistro wine bar. You might be lucky to find two of these under the same roof, but it’s rare to get all three. That is exactly what you discover at Cochon Butcher. This carnivore paradise started in New Orleans and now has a Nashville outpost too, where it transforms its small-farm-sourced, house-made meats into memorable creations, with menu stars including white boudin sausage, a muffaletta, and an all-pork burger called "Le Pig Mac."
