In other cities, this wouldn’t be big news.
But Seattle has had, historically, such a dearth of places to eat in the wee hours. That’s changing though, with a crop of late-night options popping up on Capitol Hill. And now, from Belltown, another bit of auspiciousness for those of us who like to dine in the off-hours: As promised, the Lucky Diner will stay open 24 hours from Friday through Sunday. This starts August 7, per a company press release.
The concept at Lucky is modern diner: classic diner fare like omelets and patty melts but with some higher-end flourishes. Smoked salmon and corn chowder, for instance, is not something you’d see (or care to see) on the menu at Denny’s. There is also a fit menu, a kids menu, and a bunch of vegetarian and gluten-free options. The Lucky Diner is owned and cheffed by Justin Mevs.
