On Friday, Aug. 16 Calvert’s Kitchen marked its 12th anniversary as a staple restaurant in downtown Columbus. Randall and Kim Calvert started the restaurant in Aug. 1, 2001 after opening a guitar shop next door. Randall said he had to start eating better, but at the time there was nowhere else in Columbus to get vegetables, so he opened one. Today, the menu includes items like baked sweet potatoes, stewed tomatoes and okra, pinto beans, green beans and some less healthy options like cheeseburgers, beef fried steak and chicken and dumplings. Shown are Randall Calvert, left, Nancy Sinex and Pamela Owensby. (photo by Samantha Hurst)
