Fusion / Eclectic
  • Good for special occasions
  • Neighborhood gem
  • Charming
We know the word "fusion" has been wielded about to justify everything from Hula Burgers to Mexican lasagna. But the East-meets-South brand of fusion happening at Poor Calvin's? It's creative; it's innovative; and it's probably unlike anything you've tasted in the ATL. After working in kitchens around the world, Calvin Phan wanted to shake things up a little. And so, into the mac 'n cheese, the Thai spices went. Now, Calvin's giving Southern staples, like sea bass and fried chicken, a decidedly creative Asian-inspired twist (and a nip of spice, too). He has created innovative dishes, approached in much the same way, leave the hands of Calvin Phan day in and day out. His dedication and attention to detail are evident in each dish and dessert. You won't be disappointed.

    Every time I'm in Atlanta for business, I visit Poor Calvin's, and I never get disappointed. It's by far one of the best culinary, ambiance and staff in the area. Much love to the front hostess, who are the best, keeping the vibe flowing. Until my next visit

    From the moment my party arrived we were treated with the utmost care. The food was amazing and the server provided great recommendations for us to try. The specialty cocktail for the night had lots of kick and we even ordered a second drink. Will definitely go back again.

    Amazing food and great service. We ordered lamb chops, Chilean sea bass, and fried tomatoes as appetizers. All entrees were a 10. And let's not forget the empanadas for dessert. Amazing.

    The shaky shrimp appetizer was amazing, as were the popsicle lamb chops. The seafood curry was delicious, and looked exactly as pictured online. I will definitely return! The person next to me got the Korean BBQ ribs, and I can't wait to try them on my next visit, because they looked amazing! He was taking pictures of it, and he should have!
