West Covina’s 5C’s Louisiana Seafood to close

A New Orleans-style Cajun and Creole restaurant in West Covina will
close its doors Sunday after nearly four decades in business in the Los
Angeles area.

Family-owned 5C’s Louisiana Seafood restaurant has served the region in various locations since 1971.

“Throughout the years we have had ups and downs, yet able to recover,”
the owners said in a statement printed and hung throughout the West
Covina Parkway eatery. “But, due to the present slow economy … this
time we are forced to close the doors.”

A staff member said Sunday will be the restaurant’s final operating day.

The full statement from the restaurant’s owners is pictured below.
