Here's a roundup of a busy week in restaurant news!

First off, in Belltown, an all-American diner is coming to 2630 First Ave. by mid-May. The Lucky Diner will feature down-home cooking like biscuits and gravy, hamburger steak and macaroni, and plenty of burgers and sandwiches.

On Capitol Hill, a new Italian lounge/restaurant called Varro is now serving coffee, cocktails, and antipasti at 1542 12th Ave. on Capitol Hill. MOD Pizza started slinging personal pies in the Joule Building at 519 Broadway Ave. E. over the weekend. This is the fourth installment of the local chain. And down the street, the last Pita Pit location in Seattle at 1513 Broadway Ave. has closed, citing financial struggles.

Downtown, an establishment called Durrow Abbey Restaurant and Bar has applied for a restaurant/ lounge license at 1921 First Ave.

In Fremont, another coffee shop is joining the neighborhood at 770 N. 34th St. Milstead & Company opens in May.
