Well, it was our last night in New Orleans (4/17/2018) and we had eaten some GREAT meals on our trip. A couple of friends had suggested Drago's (in the Hilton, near the river), raving about the oysters, so we decided to try it. It was...More

As you likely read in other reviews, Drago's is especially known for their charbroiled oysters. So if you go, you must try them. They are absolutely delicious, and I regret not just making a meal out of them! The rest of the menu, for me,...More

We had shrimp etouffe here and loved it. The restaurant is in the Hilton and is a large family style restaurant. The service was okay and so was the ambience. Delicious food though!

Couldn't have asked for a better first meal in New Orleans. I sat at the oyster bar and the people working there could not have been nicer. They hooked it up, showing me how to eat the gargantuan oysters and boy did I eat them....More

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

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
