Restaurant announces scheduled closure and relocation via email newsletter.
Watershed Restaurant in Decatur is closing Saturday, August 6.
The restaurant located on West Ponce De Leon Avenue opened 13 years ago.
The restaurant announced plans to relocate to a yet-to-be announced location in an email to patrons Sunday.
“One of Atlanta’s most iconic southern restaurants reveals its plans for relocation in Atlanta,” according to the email. “The new location (to be announced) will combine a fine dining experience with a casual and comfortable atmosphere.”
The new location will offer a bar, larger dining room, private dining, outdoor patio and “ample” parking, the email notes.
Emily Saliers, owner of Watershed, said the decision to relocate was not an easy one.
“While it was not an easy decision to leave Decatur, we are unable to offer our guests these added amenities in our current location,” Sailers said. “We are deeply grateful to the Decatur community for 13 years of support.”
Watershed’s Decatur location will be closing after dinner on Saturday evening August 6 so that the owners can begin working on the new restaurant which they anticipate opening by the end of the year.
