Fusion / Eclectic
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.

    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!

    Poor Calvin’s was my favorite place to go before I moved. Went back last night after being gone for 3 years and it was so comforting and exciting to know that in my absence Poor Calvin’s was not a disappointment. TJ our server was amazing and on point with his recommendations! The drinks were on point! And the food, the food….you can taste the passion, the commitment and hard work that the chef puts into each dish is perfection! Poor Calvin’s will be seeing me on a regular bases! ♥️

    We loved our time. The food was soooo delicious due to great recommendations from our server. The ambience was intimate and very cute. It was a little chilly but not unbearable and definitely wasn’t noisy at all. I wish there was better parking, but overall we had a great time and would definitely come back again and again!

    I don’t know how I’ve never heard about this place, but OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! This is officially my #1 restaurant! I’ll take it over my favorite steak house any day, hands down! The food is AMAZING and the service that Joy gave us was INCREDIBLE! There wasn’t anything we ate that wasn’t unique and delicious! This is a must have! We’ll be back!

    The food is amazing! I would say I will visit this place JUST for the food because it is that good, but the service is kind and engaging. The decor is an eclectic mix of industrial, casual, Asian and gold. It makes you feel comfortable and invites you to be yourself. This is the difference between an company owned restaurant and a chef owned restaurant, I will always pick chef owned. Will be back again and again.
