Picked up my aunt and uncle from the MSY airport and drove immediately to Drago’s in Metairie. We arrived around 6:30pm on a rainy Thursday and were seated almost immediately.
Starting out with 2 dozen charbroiled oysters was a great idea. They were perfectly done, with just enough bread to sop up any remaining juices.
The salad was the usual iceberg style and pretty boring but my Herradura Shrimp with sun dried tomatoes and portobello mushroom was very tasty. My uncle’s mahi mahi special was a little over cooked (hardly any pink flesh) but a good flavor and the baked potato went surprisingly well with it. The Crescent City Shrimp was only okay and doesn’t even begin to compare to Pascal Manale’s BBQ shrimp.
I’d definitely return but would stick with the oysters next time.
