Chefs Joe Truex & Julia LeRoy introduce new lunch menu.

I was excited to see one of my favorite Decatur restos get reincarnated and all brand-spankin new at The Brookwood on Peachtree. Not only did they keep alive their famous Fried Chicken Night (now on Wednesdays), but they revamped the menu for lunch and dinner by introducing new Southern-inspired farm-to-table cuisine focusing on local sustainable ingredients and seasonal flavors.

The new space from interior design golden boy Smith Hanes features smoky tobacco tones with gray, white, and metal accents. Perfect for a cozy date night or a relaxing afternoon on the patio, the space exudes southern charm with a modern flare. The expansive bar of reclaimed wood is perfect for people watching and enjoying one of their many new handcrafted cocktails. I’m partial to the “Cool Heat” cocktail with Charbay Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka. Just trust us. Oh. And be sure to visit Watershed on Peachtree for dinner and brunch.

    I loved the old Watershed and can’t wait to check out the new spot.  Have you had dinner there yet?  Is is as good as brunch?

      I went on the Fried Chicken Night, and it’s every bit as good as I remember from the old Watershed. Definitely need to go back for dinner. I checked out the menu while there and the Bershire Porkchop and Blue Crab and Gulf Shrimp Ragout looked divine.

    The other half of EDR was there for dinner and can attest to its fabulousness. Had the gumbo, and oysters. Dessert was divine as well. Others at the table had fried chicken steak and vegetable plate. Highly recommend!
