Donald Link's casual deli Cochon Butcher is about to get HUGE. According to NOLA.com's Todd A. Price, the deli, which just last month purchased the building adjacent to it at 351 Andrew Higgins Blvd., is looking to expand to more than triple its current size by early 2014.
That means Butcher's current dimension's of 800 square feet will swell with an additional 2,000 square feet from the recently-acquired building. What is Link hoping to do with all that extra elbow room? So glad you askedthe new space will house a much larger dining room, a bar, and the main food preparation area. Link also intimated that he wants "nighttime to become more of a player" for Butcher, which is most likely why a selection of small platers will be joining the deli's roster of popular sandwiches.
