Announced in a press release this afternoon, The Luminary, the first restaurant by Atlanta native and “Top Chef: Las Vegas” alum Eli Kirshtein, is set to open Tuesday, August 5. And it looks like it will be the first restaurant to open at Krog Street Market.
Described by Kirshtein as “an American brasserie with regional influences and named after Atlanta’s historic first newspaper,” The Luminary will feature a classically inspired menu, raw bar, craft beer and cocktail program and 400-square-foot patio space.
Lead bartender, Ian Cox, developed the “extensive Paris-inspired cocktail program that pairs perfectly with The Luminary’s brassiere values. And, in keeping with the true definition of a brasserie, The Luminary will open with an expansive beer menu, including 24 drafts and 30 bottles that will rotate seasonally.”
The Luminary will be open for dinner Tues.-Thurs., 6-10 p.m. and Fri.-Sat., 6-11 p.m. (closed Sun.-Mon.), and will expand its hours and begin serving lunch in the coming weeks.
Reservations can be booked now on the website.
