Drago’s restaurant in the heart of New Orleans serves fresh seafood, crab, Po-Boy sandwiches and spicy cuisine that Louisiana is famous for. Opened in 1969 by Drago and Klara Cvitanovich, a Croatian couple, and operated by countless family members, Drago’s secret ingredient is love. They opened their Metairie location and both tourists and locals have flocked here since day one. Their second location opened at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, and just like the original, it serves fresh seafood, charbroiled oysters, spicy gumbo and local favorites. Today, the restaurant is run by the Drago’s capable son, Tommy, who still buys oysters from some of the very same Croatian fisherman as in the earlier days. Make your reservations before you head out!
