Watershed has been an Atlanta favorite since opening in 1999, serving upscale Southern food right off Peachtree Road in Brookwood Hills. They recently revamped their menu to include some less traditional dishes, like barbecued octopus with popcorn, and a simple order of “french fries” that costs $350, because it also happens to come with a bottle of Krug brut rosé. One thing that’s still around from the old menu, however, is the beloved fried chicken, which you should definitely order, either with or without a $350 snack.
