Kimball House serves classic and contemporary dishes using ingredients obtained directly from farms.

The food is inspired by Louisiana Cajun food.The Atlanta Beltline, a sustainable redevelopment project, will provide a network of public parks, multi-use trails, green space, and a comprehensive transportation system upon completion.
