Seeking some Southern comfort food, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence stepped out at Watershed in Atlanta on Thursday.
The actress, who is in town filming Catching Fire, the next installment of the Hunger Games saga, joined the film's director Francis Lawrence and a few friends for a meal.
"Jennifer was super engaging, she spoke with other diners and even posed for a few pictures," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She seemed like she was having a blast."
Wearing an emerald green and black maxi dress, Lawrence shared appetizers with friends and ordered the restaurant's signature jambalaya for her main course.
