Restaurant Profile Watershed

Let's be honest for a moment. We all love the idea of running into our favorite celeb, eating their favorite dish, at our favorite local spot. Well, with Atlanta being the Mecca that it is, it may be hard to really pick just one hot-spot to act out your paparazzi-like role. Atlanta is the Hollywood of the east coast. It has been home to numerous movie productions, the influence behind the music of many musicians and has as many celebrity sightings as any other large city. But where do all these famous people all go to eat? If I had to pick one place where you run the chance of a celebrity encounter as you nibble on your wedge salad, I would have to say it's the Watershed Restaurant .

This Southern Comfort food mecca has welcomed Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, Woody Harrelson, Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Duvall, just to name a few. "Prisoners" star Jake Gyllenhaal was spotted on several occasions while filming there and having Indigo Girls member Emily Saliers as an owner, certainly helps draw a notable crowd. Gyllenhall reportedly sampled the oysters, steak tartare, jambalaya, lamb ragout, coconut cake, sweet potato creme brulee and hot milk cake while dining. Not too shabby for an A-list celebrity. Aside from the walk of famers that have graced this fine establishment with their presence, let's talk about the food. Everything from crawfish pies to crabmeat cannelloli await you in a dreamy decadent manner, while the dessert menu offers various house made cakes and ice creams.

Stop by anytime for brunch, lunch or dinner. Dine in delight as you enjoy a sample of soulful dining featuring flavors from the Georgia Coast to the Louisiana Bayou and everything in between, including diverse ethnic tastes found throughout the South. But, don't take it from me. Go experience it for yourself. "Today, Watershed on Peachtree continues the restaurant's long standing commitment to its founding principles with great attention to detail and community consciousness.
