Your Oyster of the Day (the first of many to come): Several years ago, my friend Jan Gautro introduced me to Drago‘s Charbroiled Oysters. It was the seed of an addiction. Now I have an oyster obsession. Any bay (Tomales to Buzzard). Any preparation. I want to try them all. 

Use the Drago’s recipe when you’re at home, but when you’re near New Orleans, you MUST check out the real thing. Dan Brennan captured a bit of Drago’s magic in these photos from the Metairie location (from the Oyster Obsession Facebook group):
