On the Fly at 950 Thomas St. in South Lake Union will close at the end of this week after a two-year run, according to Seattle Met. Manager Bobby Rice says that Flying Fish's grab-and-go lunch counter is unable to keep up with all the competition in the area, despite its loyal following. (Flying Fish is also temporarily halting lunch service.) However, the owner still plans to keep the space. On the Fly's location will be used for private events throughout the holiday season and return with a new concept next year.
