A third location of longtime Atlanta restaurant and bar Eclipse di Luna opens next spring at the Halcyon development in southern Forsyth County for tapas, paella, sangria, and salsa dancing.
Located next door to Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern at the trailhead for the Big Creek Greenway, the restaurant will feature a large dining room and bar with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the space. Two covered, all-weather patios flanking the restaurant offer additional seating outside throughout the year.
The menu for the Halcyon location is expected to mirror that of the original restaurant in Buckhead and its second location Dunwoody, serving a selection of Spanish tapas and empanadas, paella, and daily fish specials paired with pitchers of sangria and flan for dessert.
Chef Paul Luna and James Ehrlich first opened Eclipse di Luna in 1997 on Miami Circle in Buckhead, where it became an in-town hotspot for live music and salsa dancing. The second location opened in Dunwoody a few years later near the Perimeter on Ashford Dunwoody Road. Luna was also the chef and owner behind storied downtown Atlanta cafe Lunacy Black Market, run from 231 Mitchell Street until it closed in 2014.
A location of Iron Age Korean Steakhouse opened earlier this year at Halcyon, along with Cattle Shed Wine and Steak Bar, owned by the group behind Hobnob. Both restaurants join nearly a dozen other restaurants currently open at the complex, including Ocean and Acre and Cherry Street Brewpub. In addition to restaurants and retail stores, Halcyon also features a dine-in movie theater and a small food hall with seven stalls serving noodles and dumplings, coffee, pizza, Mediterranean, and poke.
