July 19 (Bloomberg) -- Felix’s Inc., owner of the namesake restaurant and oyster bar in New Orleans’s French Quarter, sought bankruptcy protection from creditors.

The company listed assets of $1.62 million and debt of $1.57 million in Chapter 11 documents filed today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New Orleans. Felix’s didn’t disclose a reason for the filing in court documents.

Felix’s has been a New Orleans landmark since the early 1900s and has been owned by the same family for more than 60 years, according to its website.
