Three Stars for Watershed, One for West & Mill

Creative Loafing's Brad Kaplan gives Watershed on Peachtree three stars, talks nature vs. nurture about its evolution from the old Decatur space, and recommends that guests stick to the Louisiana-style cuisine: "When my meals centered on Truex's refined bayou cuisine, I didn't mind the price tag at all. It was worth it. But when I stuck to the safer side of the menu, I couldn't help but lament that Buckhead might be nurturing Watershed into something less than what it was meant to be."

For the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jenny Turknett reviews West & Mill and awards it one star. Since making the switch from Swit Bakery, the restaurant's two biggest "stumbling blocks" are consistency and cohesion: "Not all of the puzzle pieces — ambience, pricing, menus — have come together in this mid-game switch-up. We'll just have to wait and see what sticks."
