Germantown to get New Orleans-based Cochon Butcher

New Orleans-based Cochon Butcher — a highly praised sandwich and butcher shop overseen by James Beard Award-winning chef Donald Link — is targeting a spring 2015 opening in Germantown, The Times-Picayune reports.

Locally, Nashville Business Journal first reported the story today (read here), noting The Times-Picayune reports that a partnership between Link Restaurant Group (for which Link serves as CEO) and Nashville-based Fresh Hospitality Group will own the Nashville Cochon Butcher. Of note, Fresh Hospitality is involved in the rehabbing of the former Peafowl Theater building, located in the heart of Germantown at the southeast corner of the Fourth Avenue and Madison Street intersection.
