I had never been, so I made it a point to trek down for lunch last week. That was the final week under Sharon Carver's ownership, although, as has been reported elsewhere, a sign in the restaurant stated that they would be reopening this fall at an address just about a block away from the old site. Not sure who the new owner is/will be, so I wanted to have some authentic Carver fried chicken while I was still sure it was the real thing.
All I can say is that I wish I'd been sooner. Being a true Southerner, I don't think there's nearly enough of the meat-and-threes (or meat-and-twos, in this case) still around in Atlanta. While I have had better fried chicken, mac and cheese, green beans, and biscuits, the whole was bigger than the parts, as each one was a very good version of their type, making the lunch as a whole a very satisfying experience! I hope they do re-open later this year, and if so, I'll be making the trek again to see if Version 2.0 is just as good.
