last week in atlanta was restaurant week, so you can bet our group was ready to try some great food at great prices. i had my brother kyle help me choose the spot, and we decided on poor calvin’s. i mean, isn’t that name just great? i think so, too! this quaint restaurant on the edge of downtown atlanta has been around since november 2012. owner and chef calvin phan came to seek bigger things in our fair city, hoping to find an appreciation for his unique and innovative international perspective. his vietnamese roots, germanic training, and swiss experience have turned out some amazing dishes here at poor calvin’s. eastern flavors and western techniques come together in what they call “absolute fusion.” the cuisine has asian flavors, thai roots, and southern accents. honestly, it was an easy choice to come here.
