Most folks who have visited Lumière since its opening in 1999 will tell you that the name says it all. French for “light”, restaurant Lumière lends just that to the West Newton dining scene-it’s a shining beacon of a bistro serving up some of the area’s most highly regarded modern French cuisine.
The name Lumière also refers to the original cinemas of France, a nod to the restaurant’s location just across from West Newton’s popular art-film house. If you plan to sample the award-winning dishes before or after a show, reserve early. The cozy 65-seat restaurant has made such a name for itself, tables fill up quickly.
