Gourmet Butcher Block

New Orleans

Stop into this takeout-only counter-serve for all the de-boned and pre-stuffed chicken, sausage, seafood, and other specialty meats you need to cook up your own hearty Cajun meal at home. For a truly authentic Cajun dinner -- typically a three pot affair with a main entree, a seafood dish, and seasonal vegetables -- bring home Gourmet Butcher Shop’s de-boned stuffed chicken with crawfish dressing, seafood gumbo, and stuffed mushrooms with pepper jack chicken sausage. Considering this spot touts itself as "Home of the Turducken," you might want to pick up that succulent hybrid of turkey, duck, and chicken (offered year-round, not just at Thanksgiving), especially if you're having trouble deciding which meat to order.
