Kevin Gillespie to Open New Restaurant in Glenwood Park
"Gunshow" to take retail spot at corner of Garrett Street and Bill Kennedy Way.
Kevin Gillespie, the Atlanta chef who built a loyal foodie following at Woodfire Grill off Cheshire Bridge Road is opening a new restaurant in Glenwood Park.
"Gunshow" as the new eatery is named, will take up the empty retail space at the corner of Garrett Street and Bill Kennedy Way in Glenwood Park.
A Gillespie spokeswoman confirmed the restaurant is coming to Glenwood Park but added final details are still being worked out.
Gillespie told Atlanta Magazine he wants the Gunshow atmosphere to be closer to who he is as a chef.
"There’s no concept behind it," he told the magazine. "I’m just opening a new restaurant, and I want to be a lot closer to who I am now at this point in my life and career than my current restaurant is."
His bio at the Woodfire website notes that since 2010, Gillespie has been a semi-finalist for the James Beard Foundation’s “Rising Star Chef of the Year” for three consecutive years and has been nominated for Food & Wine’s “The People’s Best New Chef."
