Dear New Orleanians,
We are all going through what could be the toughest challenge we have ever faced and hopefully ever will. Our team has had to make the difficult decision to suspend all to-go and delivery service.
This decision was made after careful consideration, and out of the deepest concern for the health and safety of our existing team members and our community, in an effort to help contain the spread of this virus. We will continue to provide meals for our employees and their families for as long as possible.
For 20 years, we’ve been proud to be part of this wonderful city. Closing our doors completely to the guests we love is a decision we make with very heavy hearts, but we are resilient, and we will come out of this stronger.

Cochon Butcher uses only all-natural meats and whole hogs from local and organic farms. Working with Blake and Bill Ryles for over a decade together we have created a terminal cross breed of Berkshire Blue hogs used for our meats. Our five, full-time butchers break down 2,000 pounds of meat in-house each week ensuring we utilize every part of the pig—skin for cracklins’, fat for rendering, bones for stock — everything is used.
Our butchers prepare all of the meats that we serve in our sandwiches, small plates and dinner entrees, maybe even a dessert, as well as meats and other pork products for our restaurant group. Our cured meats, sausages and fresh cuts are made and cured in-house using old world traditions. We also sell our cured meats, sausages and fresh cuts in our meat case which includes Genoa salami, fennel salami, boudin, andouille, tasso, sopressata, capicola, hogs head cheese, rillettes, smoked salmon, ham hocks, venison and duck confit.
