Lunch at Watershed on Peachtree
Eating at Watershed on Peachtree (the newest location for this restaurant) has been on the “food” bucket list for a long time. I’ve heard about this place for years, and when it reopened only blocks away from work, I seized the opportunity to try it for lunch with some coworkers.
Watershed on Peachtree’s Atmosphere
As we walked into the restaurant, I was impressed by the layout and decor. The sun peeked through the windows to serve as natural lighting for the restaurant. The space was decked with sleek, yet muted, furniture to match the neutral color palette and wood furnishings. The design reminded me of the look and feel of JCT Kitchen.
The Food at Watershed on Peachtree
We wanted to order a few things off the menu that would be tasty, yet satisfying enough to last us another five hours at work. Boy, did we achieve that or what?
The fried pimento cheese sandwich with tomato soup was the ultimate comfort food. Although it was a little greasy, the thick bread (which was pan-fried) was in equal ratio to the pimento cheese. The tomato basil soup (not pictured) was the perfect pairing to the grilled cheese.
The chicken salad sandwich and the seasoned cucumbers were delicious. The multigrain bread coupled with the pine nuts and golden raisins made me feel like I was eating some healthy, even if it wasn’t the most healthiest plate on the lunch menu (they also have a four veggie plate too!).
The “fire cracker green beans” were fresh, crunchy and spicy. I enjoyed the sauce atop the green beans, which looked like they were locally sourced. I later confirmed that Watershed on Peachtree uses baked goods and veggies from nearby.
The star of the menu (according to me) was the crabby shrimp burger.
The “burger” is a mixture of crab and shrimp held together by shrimp mousse with no filler and no bread crumbs. The perfectly braised collaboration sits on top of a toasted bun with lettuce and pickles. Once you bite into it, the shrimp stars as the main character. Now that’s a good sandwich.
Although I haven’t tried this place for dinner or brunch yet, I’m sold on their lunch menu. Have you tried this place? How did you like it?
- Farm-to-table Southern restaurant
- Valet parking is available in the parking deck behind the restaurant.
- Great place to lunch with coworkers, family or friends.
- If you are traveling north on Peachtree to get to the location, look closely on the left hand side. If you pass Uncle Julio’s, you’ve gone too far.
- Lunch prices average between $8-$16. However, dinner prices are a bit more expensive. Check the website for the menus.
- Wednesday is dubbed “Fried Chicken Night.” Be sure to get there early before it sells out!
