"Being a resident myself and drawing on my personal roots as a cook, we're excited to bring a proper brasserie to Inman Park," Kirshtein said in a release. "It was important for us to focus on the neighborhood and help contribute to the already amazing growth that is happening here. Finding a name like The Luminary, with so much of Atlanta's history tied to it, it becomes just another layer to the narrative. We want to bring great French bistro dishes that are both comforting and exciting to the table. We strive to have a unique culinary program, while still being approachable."
