Brother Luck is increasing his menu within the downtown Colorado Springs way of life
Brother Luck, owner of Four by Bruder Glück, 321 N. Tejon St., and Lucky Dumpling, 26 S. Wahsatch Ave., have shown skills other than culinary in the past few weeks. He tensed his muscles by swinging a hammer and running a belt sander. Why? Because he bought the space next to his dumpling shop, the former Triple Nickel Tavern.
“This gives us about 1,500 additional square feet. Triple entrance will be a new entrance for Lucky Dumpling, ”he said. “It will be the bar and lounge. When people go to Lucky Dumpling it will be like an entrance to a speakeasy opening into a surprisingly larger dining room. “
The additional space includes more seating, an expanded sidewalk patio on Wahsatch Avenue, and new menu items. Glück plans to open the new lounge and terrace in early September. Lucky Dumpling is open for dining, on the terrace and to take away. Details: 418-5843, luckydumplingco.com.

El Reno-style burgers are one thing
Bobby Coach, owner of Green Line Grill, 230 1/2 Pueblo Ave., and famous for his award-winning El Reno-style burgers, is in business – despite some bumps on the road, starting with the COVID-19 shutdown and inclusive the closure of the Zodiac Venue, the source of most of Couch’s evening customer base, as well as staffing issues and a broken hood.
“They (Zodiac) have been closed for four months. Building is likely to hit the market, ”he said in a Facebook message. “We were still doing business, but the future is currently uncertain. We had major staffing problems, as did the rest of the industry. We mainly focused on keeping the restaurant running. We use the truck while waiting for parts until our hood arrives at the restaurant. It’s been a tremendous amount of stress, but we’re holding on to it. “
As of August 3, according to his Facebook page, the daily special burger was fried frito-breaded Spam schnitzel with green chili and pepper-jack cheese. And of course the El Reno burger fried with onions with the sweet El Reno mustard coleslaw is always on the menu. Opening times: Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Details: 964-1461, greenlinegrill.com, facebook.com/thegreenlinegrill.
