Fried chicken at Watershed on Peachtree 

Quick, name another dish in Atlanta that has its own custom-stitched quilt hanging on the wall singing its praises. Watershed's legendary fried chicken made the trek from Ponce de Leon Avenue to Peachtree Road when the storied restaurant relocated to Buckhead in 2012. It's now served on Wednesday nights, and often runs out well before 7 p.m. The stuff takes three days to make, and mere minutes to devour. A half chicken is hacked into four individual pieces, brined, soaked in buttermilk, coated in a light dusting of flour and salt and pepper, and fried in lard spiked with ham. The result is a fried chicken masterpiece with a soft, oil-soaked crust served on brown butcher paper with a side of biscuits. Heaven. $14.50.
