D. Nobody goes to that restaurant because it is usually crowded.

Explanation:

A paradox is something that seems unreal, absurd or that is contradicting itself but is true when checked out. So, whenever we say something is paradoxical, we are implying that the thing talked about is absurd but true. The above statement that "Nobody goes to that restaurant because it is usually crowded" is paradoxical, in that it is absurd to say nobody goes to the restaurant but still is crowded. If nobody goes there, it is supposed to be empty but is always crowded, thus contradicting itself.

A paradox is a sentence that is self-contradictory, meaning that it states two things that are mutually exclusive. So, the correct answer here is D. Nobody goes to that restaurant because it is usually crowded. The paradox here is how can this restaurant be crowded if nobody ever goes there? These two premises exclude each other and make the whole sentence paradoxical.
