The Lucky Diner: New Belltown Restaurant

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.

    Perfect! Two good, American diner food options across the street from one another. CJs for breakfast, Lucky for dinner.

    I live in Belltown and I was interested in seeing what you and Luky had to say about Lucky’s Diner. You asked if it was going to be a 24 hour joint and the answer was not right away we’ll start out being a place where you can be casually dressed and come down for some good inexpensive food. I checked them out yesterday and the hamberger, well it’s a cheeseburger starts out at $13.00 so it you decide that the bacon sounds good you’ve got yerself a $15.00 hamburger. Well, you can have a darn good burger at the Two Bells for $8.50 and if you dress it up you get up to about $10, so I just thought that the word inexpensive was used kinda casually like the dress code. Thanks for listening. Good Luck, Lucky’s

  4. Not so much. The food was alright but somehow I spent $18 on brunch with tip. The drip coffee was $2.25 alone (which I didn’t even order but just appeared in front of me, so I drank it, I thought it was free.)

    Hoping they figure out the pricing b/c I cannot afford $18 brunch on the regular.
