This could easily be a three-word review: Just. Eat. Everything. As the name belies, they butcher and cure on-site, turning house-smoked meaty goodness into small plates and world-rocking sandwiches. The boudin sausage is the best east of Lafayette; the muffuletta may surpass Central Grocery’s; pork belly with cucumber and mint is wondrous. Get the vinegary Brussels sprouts, some potato chips, and dreamy mac and cheese or rue your bad decision. Dessert, like everything else, must be had; order the swoonful caramel doberge cake if it’s available. Casual, high-top tables open to the street via garage-style doors, and good local beers are offered at the full bar. Bonus points for the mad "Star Wars" diorama/table.
