Chef and butcher Kristopher Doll opened Shank Charcuterie (2352 St. Claude Ave.) Oct. 2. The butcher shop, breakfast and lunch spot is across from St. Roch Market (2381 St. Claude Ave., 504-609-3813; www.strochmarket.com), where he also sells cured meats and charcuterie under the same name.
The market counter offers a pared-down version of what he offers at the new space, which includes daily cuts of pork, beef and chicken, cured meats and full breakfast and lunch menus.
The 11,000-square-foot space includes a 20-foot lunch counter. The menu changes daily, Doll says. "The idea is to just go through what's in the case," Doll adds.
Breakfast items could include breakfast sandwiches, steak and eggs or omelets made with sausage or boudin. For lunch, there are charcuterie plates and sandwiches, such as a boudin-stuffed chicken sandwich.
Custom meat orders will be available. Shank Charcuterie is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Tuesday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
