Lonely Planet review
You used to have to truck out to Metairie to enjoy the oyster creations of Drago Cvitanovich, one of the many Croatian immigrants who brought a heady knowledge of shellfish from the Dalmatian to the Gulf Coast. Now Drago’s has an outpost in the downtown Riverside Hilton. The surf-and-turf menu is alright (we like the ‘Shuckee Duckee’ – a duck breast topped with oysters), but the real draw are the charbroiled oysters, dripping with butter, garlic, parmesan and their own juices after kissing an open fire. It’s one of the better business lunches around, by dint of taste and price.
