City Pork Deli and Charcuterie will be opening a new location in the LSU Design Building, according to a press release. It will open later in the spring semester after construction began in December.

“We are thrilled about moving into the new development at the College of Art and Design at LSU,” said Stephen Hightower, City Pork managing partner, in the press release. “This is a great business move for City Pork. The most important part of this move to LSU’s campus is we get to become part of a new, cutting edge on-campus restaurant model, and we also get to bring the City Pork flavors right to the heart of the LSU student.”

The restaurant specializes in sandwiches, but will also serve appetizers, salads and coffee. It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, according to the press release.

“This is a great opportunity for us to partner with both a local brand and an academic unit on the campus,” said Margot Carroll, assistant vice president of LSU Auxiliary Services in the press release. “After identifying the Design Building as a food desert on campus, we worked closely with the community of the College of Art & Design to bring a food option that would not only meet their needs but also meld well with the unique and fun atmosphere of their college and building.”
