Best Fried Chicken

Executive Chef Scott Peacock takes us higher every Tuesday night with his sacrosanct rendition of the fried chicken dinner at WATERSHED. The bird is brined in salt water, then soaked in buttermilk and finally seasoned and pan-fried in lard. Served with homey biscuits, crisp-tender green beans, and supple, buttery mashed potatoes, this is a meal that does a soul good. Come early, though, because there are no apologies offered when they run out for the night, which is usually by 8 p.m.

406 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-378-4900.
