Heavenly Food at Watershed


Last Friday, my two favorite girls and I donned sexy outfits and pointy heels and dined at Watershed. Most of you know that its my favorite restaurant in town. The dinner was actually a reward for Emily who successfully bid on my Menu for Hope prize, therefore saving me the humiliatio of having no one bid on my prize. I had already given Em & Sami the cookbook that was promised as part of the prize, and it seemed a bit silly to spend the day with Emily giving her a tour of familiar Atlanta fooderies, so instead I offered to take her for dinner at Watershed (to honor the original intention of the prize). Sami was otherwise indisposed at a Friday Night Team Meeting, so we took advantage of our girls night.

Kathleen and I still had warm memories of the Best G&T in town that we had ordered at our last dinner at Watershed, so we quickly ordered one. Its made with small-batch gin and has a crunchy cuke slice floating inside:


Next, we clamored for the Butterbean Hummus. Creamy and buttery-and served with homemade feta, crispy green beans, celery with its gorgeous leaves, razor thin radish wafers, and salty slimy olives:

I chose the porkchop cooked medium, served with macaroni & cheese and sweet potatos:

Kathleen ventured for the vegetable plate, which had lima beans, rutabega puree, fried califlower, sour cream corn bread, and roasted tomatos:

Emily chose best with Shrimp and Red Rice--it was tangy, creamy, tender, and spicy all at once:

Afterwards, we sped to a gallery opening and arrived too late for any people watching. Sometimes, on Friday, all you can hope (and pray for) is a great meal with your friends. If you haven't been to Watershed lately, go this weekend!
