Chef J.P. Holland opens new eatery in Mountain Brook Village, Watkins Branch Bourbon and Brasserie.  Known for his careful sourcing of food products and no rules attitude at Fig Tree, and has the same select sourcing and mindset for Watkins Branch Bourbon and Brasserie. 

The new eatery befits its neighborhood's prohibition era name, "Watkins Branch."
Watkin's Branch Bourbon and Brasserie's menu is sharply focused on hearty, authentic small plates sourced from Alabama farms paired with an extensive bourbon list. They also serve beer, wine and other spirits. 

Watkin’s Branch is inspired by the traditional French brasserie: upscale French restaurants serving small plates with a variety of spirits. As a nod to French tradition, the dishes include robust small plates of timeless, reimagined favorites. The chef inspired menu is paired with a variety of bourbons, rare and common from around the world, as well as craft beer and wine. We invite you to get cozy, sip a perfectly curated cocktail and enjoy redefined classic dishes. 

Set on an old Indian hunting ground, this area of Mountain Brook was pioneered in the early 1820s. The Watkins were among the first settlers and landowners in the area. As the land began to develop it was of utmost importance to preserve its natural beauty. It was fondly referred to as Watkin’s Branch until the turn of the century when it was renamed Mountain Brook. 

Holland is also the owner and chef of Fig Tree in Cahaba Heights.
