5 Spot owner Peter Levy says the restaurant will focus on its popular breakfast and lunch offerings moving forward, but is discontinuing dinner service in response to the market on the top of Queen Anne.

A growing restaurant scene in South Lake Union and Lower Queen Anne means less traffic on the hill, Levy said.

“Demographics are changing on Queen Anne,” he said, “and our strength has always been the breakfast and lunch trade.”

5 Spot made the switch on Monday, ahead of a weeklong closure to update the kitchen and give the interior a fresh coat of paint. The restaurant will close on Sunday, Aug. 18, with plans to reopen for breakfast and lunch on Saturday, Aug. 24.

“About once every eight years we’ll shut it down and do it right,” Levy said.

Anyone who comes in from now until 5 Spot closes for renovations — and spends at least $20 — will receive a $10 gift card to use when the Queen Anne restaurant reopens. 5 Spot will open an hour earlier on weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekend hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For the past 30 years, 5 Spot has explored regional cuisines with its rotating food festival menu. Those items will still be available for folks that want to reserve the restaurant for private parties any night of the week.

“We probably have a hundred regional American food menus to work with, so we have recipes for any cuisine people would want,” Levy said.
