The Fifth String

When chef Justin Brunson announced that he would not be reopening Old Major, it was a hit for Highland. But Amos Watts purchased the restaurant in 2020 from Brunson, completing a circle that began back in 2016, when Watts became the head chef at Old Major for about two years. Offered in an updated dining room, Watt’s menu is loaded with indulgent choices like a seafood tower and 36-ounce tomahawk Colorado ribeye — and don't miss the beef tallow candle bread service.
