Drago's Baton Rouge is expected to open its doors to patrons in the first week of February 2020.
Last year, restaurant owner Tommy Cvitanovich announced the opening in the Capital City, ending a three-year hunt for a location in Baton Rouge.
Last fall, the restaurant secured the old FYE building at 4580 Constitution Avenue.
The original restaurant first opened in Metairie in 1969 and has since opened locations in New Orleans, Lafayette and Jackson, Mississippi.
