A long-standing restaurant on 5th Avenue in Naples is closing its doors.

The lack of parking availability along 5th Avenue was too much for the owners of Cafe Lurcat.

The owners say they have plenty of business, but there is no place for their customers to park.

There is so much business in downtown Naples, that parking can become a nightmare.

"It sure beats the alternative of 'Oh my gosh, there's no business, there's nothing going on,'" Naples Mayor Bill Barnett said.

They say the parking can't support guests and workers, and the valet has been too full on weekends this season.

"It kind of was a surprise," Barnett said.

Edoardo Paredi, who manages Kitchen, says the parking concerns are real.

"It's complicated. There is not enough parking. Absolutely not," Paredi said.

Paredi says he loves having his business on 5th Avenue, but it makes operations tough.

"We have phone calls saying, 'We are coming late, we are looking for parking, can you hold the table please?'" Paredi said.

"We had a very busy season, and I think people understand that," Barnett said. "We'll do everything we can to make it accessible."

The owners of Cafe Lurcat want to keep their business local and say they want to open another business in the Naples market.
