Toups Meatery review image

Toups Meatery in Mid-City serves modern Creole food with a strong focus on all things meat. Foie gras, wagyu steaks, and chicken confit are all on the menu, along with local staples like boudin balls and plenty of Gulf seafood. If you’re with a group and want to do it right, start with one of their cocktail pitchers and the Meatery Board, which includes a variety of house-made fresh and cured meats. If you don’t feel like making the trip to the original, Toups South is located just west of downtown and serves delicious things like fried chicken and goat tamales, along with many of the Meatery’s greatest hits as well.

Cochon Butcher

Next door to the restaurant is Cochon Butcher, which is way more casual than its neighbor, but still serves great sandwiches and drinks.

Cochon Restaurant

The wood-fired oysters at Cochon are one of the single best things you can eat in New Orleans, and their cocktails are pretty good, too.

Peche in the Warehouse District is a great spot for big groups, like when you and your 20 closest friends want to have a few drinks and eat seafood.
