The first Lucile’s opened in Boulder back in 1980, and the restaurant now has other locations in Denver, Fort Collins, Littleton, and Longmont. “We’ve been in business for 40 years now, so I certainly enjoy my work,” said Lucile’s founder Fletcher Richards.

“I have people in my company that love to grow, so that’s what we’re doing,” Richards told What Now Denver. “We have partners in our business. That’s how we grow our business. It’s quite family-oriented.”

Lucile’s model has been to develop people within the company and give them space to grow. Richards’ partner, Brian Heilman, will operate the Erie location. More Lucile’s could open in the future.  

The Lucile’s location in Erie is tentatively scheduled to open in late May at 554 Briggs St. “We’re going to do more, actually. We have to expand it,” Richards explained. “We’ll have some more work to do in the future adding on space in the back of the restaurant,” Richards said.

The menu features a variety of breakfast options including Shrimp and Grits and Eggs Pontchartrain, which features pan-fried mountain trout, poached eggs, and bearnaise sauce with grits or potatoes and a buttermilk biscuit.  

Lunch options include gumbo, red beans and rice, and a shrimp po’boy. If you’re in the mood for a sweeter dish, you can try the beignets, which are homemade, New Orleans-style donuts.
