Avec Bacon Cafe, Louisiana's first bacon-themed restaurant has announced they will be permanently closing their doors.

In a post on their Facebook page earlier this morning, owner Paul Ayo announced that this Sunday (02/02/2020) will be the restaurant's last day.

Avec Bacon, located at 4807 Johnston Street, Suite L, has been in operation for the past two years but, as Ayo states in the post, it's time to move on to "bigger and better things".

From the Avec Bacon Cafe Facebook page -

This year, after many months of conversation, I’ve decided to join the Wildcat Brothers Distilling family as their Chief Culinary Officer.

So, while you may be sad we are closing, just know that there is more bacon, booze and experiments to come in the near future, including pop ups with the food you love.

Below is the full statement from Avec Bacon Cafe.
