DETAILS

The charbroiled oysters at Drago's have become a New Orleans tradition since second-generation restaurant manager Tommy Cvitanovich's experiment went completely, deliciously right in 1993.

Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily.

"To get an idea of Drago's enduring legacy, just look at how many other restaurants now imitate its famous dish, charbroiled oysters. To get an idea of how many people still prefer the original, just look at how big the restaurant has grown after rounds and rounds of dining room expansions."
Gambit Weekly

 

"Cooked over flames in their shells with a little lemon, garlic and parsley, [charbroiled oysters] come to the table smelling ambrosial and bursting with an unforgettable flavor. The recipe has now been widely copied, but no one seems to have mastered it as Drago’s."
