Omnivore - Carver's to reopen on the Westside

Carver's Country Kitchen to reopen in October


Last month, longtime Atlanta institution Carver's Country Kitchen announced it would close its doors on March 30.

This week, we learn that Sharon Carver plans to reopen her beloved meat-and-three in October within a property she owns just one block west of Carver's current location at 1118 West Marietta St. (She cited lease issues and a desire to retire as her motivations for closing at the end of this month.)

Carver intends to renovate the nearby turn-of-the-century house into a homey eatery featuring working fireplaces in every room, communal tables, and both indoor and outdoor seating - including "wraparound country courts."

"It will be a much bigger and better facility, a bigger operation," Carver tells CL. "It will be more comfortable for the customers, who will enjoy dining in an early-1900s bungalow, with parking for about 30, which we didn't have much of before."
