Owner Clark Loffman, of Teaneck, said the current state of the economy is tough on small restaurants.
“We had a nice following; it just wasn’t from a business standpoint economically viable anymore,” Loffman said. “Foot traffic on Cedar Lane isn’t what it used to be.”
On Tuesday, the restaurant posted a farewell message on its Facebook page.
"A lot of thought went into this decision along with many sleepless nights. Emotionally, it was a tough decision. Financially, it was the only decision," a post on the restaurant's Facebook page said.
The eatery has received an outpouring of support from fans on Facebook.
“It has been a great three and half years, and I want to thank all of you for your unwavering support of the restaurant,” the Facebook message said. “So, the next time you batter, dip and deep fry a Milky Way bar or a piece of cheesecake, need to warm up with some creamy New England Chowder, or just want a piece of fresh Norwegian Salmon Grilled or Blackened with sautéed broccoli and garlic, I hope you'll think of Fish of the C's and all the good times we had.”
