Char-Broiled Oysters , Oh So Good!

Today I want to spotlight an excellent New Orleans eatery, Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, located downtown at 2 Poydras Street. Drago’s has been in business since 1969 and has maintained a reputation of fresh, delicious seafood especially their famous char-broiled oysters.  These oysters are arguably the best in town, with many restaurants around often imitating but never duplicating their flavor. They are cooked in their shell on a hot grill with a tasty garlic, butter, and herb sauce brushed over and dusted with a Parmesan/Romano cheese blend. Just add a little lemon juice, grab a cold Abita beer and you’ll be set! I guarantee you will be in food heaven! If you can’t get to New Orleans, than make your own!
