Watershed Kitchen & Bar is the one-stop shop for smooth cocktails and delightful dishes. Tucked around the corner of inconspicuous buildings sits this cozy Grandview gem. Backlit bottles at the bar and contrasting gray walls create an intimate space, making it perfect for a dinner date!
I made dinner reservations for 5:30PM, just a little earlier than the winter sunset. As I was promptly seated upon arrival, I caught the distillery’s cascading lights. The aesthetics alone had me excited. Drinks rolled from the bar and were delicious as they looked! I ordered the Bendicíon first. This fresh and light cocktail was mixed with Bacardi, hibiscus syrup, black tea, lime, angostura bitters, and topped with a kiwi. The next cocktail? The perfect blend of bourbon and cream. The Nostalgia & Moxie was creamy yet light from the Moxie Soda.
Watershed’s staff was well versed with both drink and food menus. Food items were categorized as I, II, or III. Portion sizes differentiated each category. “I” items were equivalent to side dishes, “II” to shareable appetizers, and “III” to entrees. Appetizers were full of flavor and their artistic plating was definitely Insta-worthy. The Fried Brussel Sprouts and Crispy Fingerling Potatoes were fan-favorites and definitely Kasual Life approved. Entree portions were filling with plenty of protein.
The evening ended on a sweet note with baked pears, espresso mousse topped with Watershed’s Nocino liqueur, and a cup of coffee. The aesthetics, drinks, and dishes at Watershed Kitchen & Bar created a delightful experience. I’m already ready for another round of Watershed cocktails!
