The Rev. Dr. Daniel Jackson arrived in New Orleans in August 2002 as a bright eyed afro-coiffed college freshman. His descent into alcoholism, nihilism and self-destruction ensued rapidly. Leighann Smith arrived in New Orleans completely on a whim an indeterminate time ago. Her descent into alcoholism, nihilism and self-destruction was already well underway. They began working together in July 2014. Against all odds, they didn’t murder each other. When they finally couldn’t stand working for other people any longer, they decided to dive headlong into their self-destructive tendencies, and they bilked some folks into giving them a bunch of money to open their own butcher shop. They would like you to put their meat in your mouths.
If you don’t believe that, believe that we are a nose to tail butcher shop & restaurant located in New Orleans, Louisiana. We work with farmers that use responsible and humane methods. We try our best to put every part of the animal to good use. If you want something we don’t have, come talk to us- we want you to love eating our meat.
