Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

This place is great.  They’re famous in New Orleans as the originators of Charbroiled Oysters.  Oysters on the half shell, grilled over an open flame, while slathered with an herbed garlic butter.  As they grill, the melted butter drips down into the fire causing huge flare ups, which gives them a nice smoky flavor. There’s… Continue reading Drago’s, Metairie, LA Report #250

Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231

If you’re looking for this place at night, look hard, because that sign doesn’t light up.  Or if it does, it wasn’t lit up tonight. When you see this place it just strikes you how plain it is.  No ornate decorations or anything.  It’s just a simple, no nonsense, steakhouse, and that’s good enough for… Continue reading Beef Connection, Gretna, LA Report #231

Jack Dempsey’s, New Orleans, LA Report #124

  I never say anything about myself but here’s one tidbit of information.  I’m a retired New Orleans Police Officer.  That’s pertinent because this place is located three blocks away from the now defunct New Orleans Police Department 5th District Police Station, which was the first place I worked when I joined the NOPD in… Continue reading Jack Dempsey’s, New Orleans, LA Report #124
