Per Springs Magazine, chef Brother Luck is in the process of launching a new concept after closing the popular Lucky Dumpling restaurant on February 19. Luck has yet to announce the new eatery concept for the location at 26 S. Wahsatch Ave. in Colorado Springs, but he has given some clue as to what the refresh will look like.

According to Luck, the upcoming setting will split the 3,500 square-foot spot into two dining rooms — a yet-to-be-announced eatery downstairs and a 24-seat, reservation-only “micro-restaurant” that will host “five-course tasting experiences.” Via tickets available online next week, the cozy studio will serve as a lab that shows off the innovative chops from Luck and his crafty kitchen crew.

“The food will vary on the inspiration of myself and our culinary team,” Luck said in an email to What Now Denver. “I want it to provide a dining experience that embraces creativity and seasonality.”

The menu will incorporate Luck’s eclectic range of “travels and memories; dumplings from China, oxtails from the South, foie gras from France, more of a personalized touch on every menu.”

Before arriving in the Springs, Luck also cooked in Japan, Hong Kong, Chicago, and New York City. He’s also made time to become a celebrity chef, taking down the eponymous host of Beat Bobby Flay, making the finals on Chopped, and showing off his skills on Top Chef. Brother began by paying his dues as a 14-year-old cook helping his family through hard times. Earning his way through an Arizona vocational school not only inculcated an indomitable work ethic and Luck’s fervor for quality food, but reinforced his belief in serving the greater public. The new venture will allow Luck to bring an even greater array of eats.

“I’m excited to cook for a smaller group on a regular basis. This offers me the chance to really focus on the details while cooking in a speakeasy-style restaurant,” Luck said.

In “the middle of renovation” right now, the team’s plan is to open the new Springs restaurants “within the next few weeks.”
