  8. Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, the New Orleans eatery best known for its charbroiled oysters, is looking at opening locations in Baton Rouge and Lafayette. A location for the Lafayette restaurant should be announced “in the next couple of days,” said Ron St. Pierre, a spokesman for Drago’s. That restaurant should open later this year. Drago’s is also interested in opening a Baton Rouge restaurant, possibly as part of a mixed-use development that would be built off Highland Road in front of the Country Club of Louisiana. “We are interested in that piece of property, but we are strictly in the negotiation phase,” St. Pierre said. While Baton Rouge is a priority market, a Drago’s wouldn’t open in the city before 2016. Plans are in the works to build a 45,000- to 55,000-square-foot mixed-use development in front of the Country Club, on the side of State Bank and Trust.
