The city's craft beer obsessives will no doubt be pleased to know that LUCK (that's Local Urban Craft Kitchen) opens tonight at Trinity Groves at 5 p.m.
The new concept is brought to you by the TG restaurant incubator program and the trio of chef Daniel Pittman, Jeff Dietzman and Ned Steel; according to the press release, the three met at Central Market's cooking school.
The main attraction at LUCK is the rotating selection of 40 craft beers, entirely sourced from local North Texas breweries (no cans or bottles are offered) including Martin House, Community, Rahr, DEBC, neighboring Four Corners, Firewheel and more. Continuing with the tap-heavy theme, there's also kombucha, Texas wines, and cold brew coffee all on draft. The beer isn't just for drinking, though — a large portion of the menu items also incorporate beer in some way, from a beer-braised lengua torta and a "Hot Brown" turkey sandwich with white cheddar-beer sauce to a beer-battered fried apple funnel cake.
For now, LUCK is open Sunday-Thursday from 5-10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 5-11 p.m.; lunch service will begin sometime soon.
