Illuminare is down

The owner says he needs personal time, so it's closed for now.

Illuminare is down

Illuminare, the Italian spot in Fairmount with the sweet little magnolia-shaded courtyard out back. appears to be down just shy of its 10th anniversary.

Its website merely presents a brick-wall background with the word, "Thanks."

Owner Brian Augustine says family issues have forced him to take personal time.

Augustine spent years developing and building Illuminare, whose building was pretty much in ruins.
