Dragos in the French Quarter

Dragos in New Orleans.
This is a newer location for Dragos into the French Quarter.
They are the home of the charbroiled oysters. That actually didn't seem appealing to me, as I tried oysters once and didn't care for them.
However, my sister likes oysters, so she got some and I tried them.

They were fabulous! You could taste the chargrilling and they had the most wonderful buttery garlic sauce on them, plus parmesan cheese. Soaking up the sauce with the french bread on the side was heaven!

For dinner, I had the
Large Gulf shrimp seasoned with fresh herbs and spices, served the “New Orleans Way” with French roll and a baked potato.

These were quite spicy instead of regular bbq shrimp, which is more garlicky and buttery. This dish had a ton of blackening seasoning. Quite good. The potato on the side was okay, it was on the edge of it's holding time.

My sister had the Shuckee Duckee
Blackened duck breast over linguini pasta
with oysters and cream sauce.

Oh man! Now I'm drooling. I tried to buy oysters last night, but my fish monger reported that due to all of the flooding, snow, road runoff, the oysters out of Puget Sound (off of Seattle) are contaminated :(. He said I'll have to wait at least a week for them to flush themselves out and possibly more. I'll content myself with your picture. I'm so excited to find your blog. Thanks for "friending" me on Foodbuzz. Congratulations on the weight loss. I have lost 34lbs., have maintained it for 6 months now, but am starting to try to lose more. (I still have a ways to go!) I can't wait to read future posts!
