Earlier this week we posted about the new and departing restaurants in Green Lake this month. One of those included Lunchbox Laboratory, which closed last weekend and is anticipated to be reopening as Green Lake Grill at the end of January. We reached out to Neighborhood Grills, the owner of the restaurants, for more information and just received this press release explaining the departure and anticipated menu of the new Green Lake Grill.

“After 2 years as Lunchbox Lab, Owner, John Schmidt will be resurrecting his former Greenlake Bar & Grill.  “We miss the popularity we had in the neighborhood and are excited to get back to what originally made us famous.” said, John.
The original Greenlake Bar & Grill served guests for 17 years and closed on February 11, 2018. “Those were great years and we’re looking forward to serving the Green Lake community again with a neighborhood grill,” John added.
Lunchbox Lab closed on January 18th.  The restaurant is currently under remodel and will reopen as Greenlake Grill on January 27th.
The Greenlake Grill menu will feature comfort food and similar menu items as its’ sister restaurants; Eastlake Bar & Grill and Lake Forest Bar & Grill. 
The restaurant is 3000 square feet and seats 100.  When weather permits and the outdoor patio is open, seating capacity expands to 140.  The patio is dog friendly.
The restaurant will be open daily for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Brunch will be served on the weekends. The restaurant is located at 7200 East Green Lake Drive North, Seattle, WA 98115 Phone 206. 729.6179.
