Jenny Turknett reviewed Watershed on Peachtree and gave the Brookwood Hills restaurant three stars. It's a redesign of the first Watershed in Decatur, helmed by Joe Truex and full of a new energy that the previous version didn't quite have. Turknett suggests the goujonettes, the actually-vegetarian vegetable plate, and the chicken-fried steak (especially for diners who yearn to make fried chicken night on Wednesdays but can't find the time to come in during the week). She also liked Truex's deconstructed jambalaya and pork belly wrap, though she warns that a few dishes, like the heart of palm salad, have a few too many components to meld together harmoniously. Try Watershed's chocolate cake or a trifle-esque concoction called the mess for dessert.
