Anything but fried chicken, Watershed update and more news

LeRoy's Fried Chicken

LeRoy's Fried Chicken

Joe Truex and Julia LeRoy. Both are associated with fried chicken: Truex at Watershed and LeRoy at her former fried chicken stand. With neither location open at this point, they are teaming up to prepare a family-style Sunday supper. What will they serve? You’ve got it: anything but fried chicken. This four-course meal with wine pairings will take place at The Goat Farm on Sunday, Dec. 4. For tickets, email 1200 Foster St., Atlanta. $85 donation.

Update on Watershed:

Watershed sent an email recently to its customers announcing that it will reopen in the Brookwood Building on Peachtree Street next spring. The email quoted chef and partner Joe Truex, who said the menu will infuse “flavors from the Georgia Coast to the Louisiana Bayou and everything in between including the diverse ethnic flavors found throughout the South.”

In other news:

  • Slate Table and Tap in Roswell announced on their Facebook page yesterday that it will open for business beginning on Dec. 7. It plans to serve chef-inspired bar food for both lunch and dinner. Slate will carry 18 beers on tap and 32 in the bottle. Its sister restaurant, Indigo, is still closed due to damage from a fire with plans to reopen next year. 1132 Canton St., Roswell.
  • Town Brookhaven is now home to the fast-casual concept, Tre’za. The restaurant sources locally grown ingredients to make their wood-fired pizza, soups, salads and 14 daily flavors of house-made gelato. The concept was developed by former Chez Panisse chef Scott McGehee with John Beachboard, who partnered with two hotel franchisors. The Brookhaven location will serve as the model for the brand’s development and expansion throughout the Southeast as 15 more locations are planned over the next year. 705 Town Blvd, Atlanta.

Black Friday “Retail Therapy”:

  • RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is offering a shopping respite today with a day-long happy hour. The menu will include more than 35 sushi, appetizer and tapas selections ranging from $2-$7 plus a number of drink specials. Available from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. today. 1080 Peachtree St. 404-267-0114.

Glad to see Watershed back in business. Sad to hear it will not be in Decatur. It helped anchor Decatur’s restaurant boom. I wish landlords and city councils and Mayors understood how important having nationally ranked restaurants is to the economy of their communities.

I’m looking forward to visiting Watershed in their new location, which is walking distance from me.

Watershed had become an embarrassment…especially lunch. I live in Decatur and there is absolutely no way I would travel to Buckhead for the last incarnation of Watershed…no way!

Watershed is nice and glad to see it make a return…however, what I would really love to see come back is Mitra.

If they did not like you in Decatur, do you think they will like you in Buckhead? Doubt it!
