This is a must stop on every trip. Eddie, the bartender, knows how to take care of his customers. The charbroiled oysters are awesome. I don't eat raw oysters, and these cooked oysters are amazing! The entire menu is delicious and the drinks are off...More

A friend told me I had to try the gumbo here and she was right! It was outstanding. I also had the barbeque shrimp which I thought was a little too salty. But the gumbo was delicious!

Food was a bit pricey but good. Drago’s is known for their charbroiled oysters and did not disappoint. I had the crab augratin(?) but am not a big fan. Facilities was clean and quiet and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
