A new casual food option is coming to Belltown and joining the company of a couple recent neighbor friendly Belltown options. First it was Belltown Pub, with a laid back atmosphere and prices that weren’t in the club stratosphere. Next, Local 360 took over the ailing Flying Fish space and has since opened to rave reviews.
We’re happy to see yet another neighborhood eatery being planned for an April 2011 opening; The Lucky Diner. Justin Mevs is the owner, who leased the brand new retail space at the bottom of the AL Humphrey house on 1st & Cedar. We asked him a couple questions;
What’s the vision that you have? “The Lucky Diner will be a casual, neighborhood spot, that will be serving fun American comfort food. I would like it to be a place where local residents feel comfortable throwing on some casual attire and can enjoy some inexpensive good quality food.”
Is it really going to be open 24 hours? “Not right away. The ultimate goal of The Lucky Diner is to provide 24 hour service, but until we are established with late night clientele, we will be open until 10 pm on weekdays, and 4 am on Friday and Saturday nights.”
What made you choose Belltown in terms of a location? “I have always loved the belltown neighborhood and community. I felt that there is a need for a casual neighborhood meeting place.”
Belltown is a neighborhood that’s been changing quite a bit. We’re not opening new clubs, but we are opening a host of new options for neighborhood residents. I guess it’s about time considering this is the densest neighborhood in Seattle. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this great neighborhood continues to evolve.
