Drago’s Seafood Restaurant (Metairie)
3232 N. Arnoult Road, Metairie, LA 70002
Their Secret Ingredient is Love.
(In the Restaurant World, Maybe the Rarest Ingredient of All.) People often ask about the secret to Drago’s success. It’s no secret. You see it at the restaurant every day. They all love what they do.
It’s been that way since Drago and Klara Cvitanovich opened their first restaurant in 1969. They set out to offer delicious seafood and a good time to guests for a reasonable price. At that time, they couldn’t imagine how many guests that would become.
Today it is still a family atmosphere. Family members are still at the front to greet guests. Tommy Cvitanovich, Drago and Klara’s son, is there to see that things run smoothly. And though 92-year-old Drago doesn’t select the oysters himself anymore, you can still see him at their restaurants when he’s not on duty as Grandpa.
Their family has grown a lot since the early days—and the work family has too. It would be impossible to do what they do without a very hard-working and loyal staff. Drago’s now has more than 400 employees who help carry the legacy forward. And they all have a great time doing it!
