We are still trying to recover from two hurricanes, and there are many businesses and restaurants that still haven't been able to open because of damage. We are looking forward to all of them bouncing back and reopening.

But there also is good news in the lake area. As many recover, we are also seeing progress  As a sign of growth in Southwest Louisiana, more new businesses are opening up in the area, and today there is a new pizza restaurant opening in Lake Charles.

LIT Pizza is set to open in Lake Charles today, January 25, and it boasts that their pizza is blast fired. The new restaurant gives you the opportunity to get one of their classic pizzas or create your own. They offer gluten free and cauliflower options, as well.
