Watershed on Peachtree
1820 Peachtree Rd., Brookwood
First opened in 1998 inside a converted gas station in downtown Decatur as a food and goods shop, Watershed is now an award-winning (and decidedly tonier) full-service restaurant in Atlanta’s historic Brookwood Hills neighborhood. What hasn’t changed, though, is the eatery’s farm-to-table ethos and commitment to fresh, progressive Southern food. Dinner options range from smoked pork loin with grits and bacon to poached jumbo scallops; Comfort food classics like mac ‘n’ cheese and cornbread don’t disappoint. They also have a pretty great bar, where you can order small bites like baby kale salad or cornmeal fried catfish. Note: their infamous fried chicken is on the lunch and dinner menus Wednesdays only.
