Brother Luck was the winner of Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay where he won the judges over with his love of pork and also a finalist on Food Network’s Chopped where Alex Guarnaschelli called him “a wizard in the plating department”.
Chef Brother Luck started his solo venture in the back of a local punk rock bar in Colorado Springs three years ago. He decided that it was time to start serving his own style of food and begin a new chapter. First he did the “Street Foods Tour” and next was the “Willy Wonka Dinner“. These creative dining experiences eventually led into his “Urban Cuisine” restaurant. With all of the culinary journeys Brother Luck experienced throughout his career he decided to go back to the basics; stove, burner, food, and customer.
