Maybe your family doesn’t live nearby, or maybe they do, but you’re still trying to avoid them. Either way, when you want a comforting birthday meal that feels home-cooked without actually having to speak to people you’re related to, head to Revival. Start with a few cocktails or a sweet tea on the roomy front porch of this historic former house in Decatur. Then move to a table inside and pass around plates of fried chicken, meatloaf wrapped in bacon, and sides like mac and cheese and sweet potato souffle.
