My wife and I decided to try something different this year and celebrate Thanksgiving at a local metro Atlanta restaurant which was completely unknown to us. The excellent TripAdvisor reviews swayed us to try Poor Calvin's. So glad we did. Rather than the typical hustle and bustle of most restaurants open on holidays, we enjoyed a relaxing lunch which was outstanding. Stars of the menu of course included moist roasted-fried turkey breast, but also arcadian goat cheese beet salad, crab stuffed mushroom, kabocha squash soap, and the best sweet potato dutch casserole we've ever eaten.
Portions were so plentiful we look forward to sampling leftovers the next couple of days. The caramel Fuji apple dessert we were too full to eat on premises will be devoured a couple of hours from now at home. Can't wait!
Poor Calvin's was a nice local discovery for us and we will return soon for a weekend brunch to try their famous lobster mac and cheese and other menu items. Executive chef Calvin Phan likes to mingle with the guests, which is also a treat.
