Watershed on Peachtree Restaurant Review: Watershed on Peachtree is helmed by Louisiana native chef/partner Joe Truex. Truex keeps Watershed's farm-to-table philosophy firmly in place, and local producers carry the day. Roasted oysters are cooked just enough, resulting in a bright oyster taste almost as if they were raw. The scallop schnitzel dish consists of sliced scallop crumb-coated and fried schnitzel-style, then topped with a fried quail egg. Another good starter is the crawfish pie, rather like an empanada. Grouper is pristinely fresh, and while the bone-in pork chop has promise, at the moment, it’s being brined too long, so winds up overly salty. The accompanying collard greens are seasoned with bacon jam, an inspired pairing. Fried chicken night is back, only it's now on Wednesdays and served family-style. For dessert, the chocolate cake in a jar is a whole lovin’ spoonful of goodness. The wine list offers many satisfying choices that complement the food, including a good number by the glass. At brunch, the cocktails, in a section called "Hair of the Dog," are all classics, from Bloody Marys to mimosas and Champagne cocktails.
