When you say you’re in SONO, few people in Atlanta know where that is. So say less; just tell them you’re at Poor Calvin’s, which has more landmark recognition than most things in that area (for example, did you know ATL had a Central Park?). Okay, we’re lying a little; the Civic Center is pretty famous, but we’d say the food at Poor Calvin’s is not far behind. Their lobster fried rice and lobster mac and cheese should be city attractions—sort of like putting them on a CityPass combo with visits to the Georgia Aquarium and The World of Coca-Cola. But seriously, anything and everything is good here, including the seafood pad thai, the soy-glazed beef tips, and their long list of cocktails. Speaking of, have you had Long Island iced tea with chai tea liqueur? Well, it’s time to try.
