Conrad’s Family Restaurant, a fixture on Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge for 43 years, will permanently close its doors after the last cup of coffee is poured on May 22, owner Peter Bissias said Wednesday.
“I want to thank the community, the people, the organizations — schools, churches — our very loyal customers and all those who have worked here over the years for supporting the business and allowing us to serve the community,” said Bissias. “It’s been a very special place.”
Conrad’s opened in 1968 as one of the original tenants of the Vons shopping plaza in La Cañada. Founder Conrad Burleson sold the business a short time later to Nick Bissias, who owned and operated the restaurant until his son Peter took over two years ago.
