A spokeswoman at the development the restaurant is rumored to open at told What Now Atlanta Wednesday that several retail outlets are in negotiation for space there — one being a restaurant — but that a lease hasn’t been secured.

“We’d be lucky to have one of the caliber of The Watershed,” she said.

    Buckhead would be a good move. A lot more disposable income for the taking than in Decatur. And the business travel dining business, too.

    Can us commenters put the rumored location? If so – Brookwood in SoBu – just south of Uncle Julio’s/Teds.

    AJ – I hope so (it’s my ‘hood!). Where though? There are no empty restaurants here right now. I miss Taurus, BTW.

    Oh, ha ha, literally THE Brookwood. Interesting choice. Those units are beautiful, I hope they’re selling better now.

    You won’t publish rumors, but publishing restaurant health scores is ok? Figure out your strategy and stick to it wnatl.

    So sad to see Watershed out of business for now. One of my favorite places, and I loved that they were in Decatur. Maybe they will just hold out and wait for Ponce Marketplace? Indigo girls did perform there recently??
