You can't get any closer to fresh garden pickings than the Moonlight Garden Dinner hosted by Milton's Cuisine & Cocktails in Crabapple's Historic District on Sunday, June 23. Join Milton's for a reception at 5 p.m. with tasty hors d'oeuvre and drinks. Guests will be taken on a scenic tour of Milton's Acre and Strawberry Fields before being seated at a table in the Acre for a four-course dinner with wine pairings. The menu, by Executive Chef Derek Dollar, includes a colored baby romaine salad with teardrop tomatoes, roasted pistachios, goat cheese and white balsamic vinaigrette; pan-seared diver sea scallop with heirloom tomato and purple basil risotto; smoked leg of beef, spring Vidalia onions, braised carrots, roasted asparagus, mushroom and bacon bordelaise; and a sweet conclusion of buttermilk and Strawberry Fields panna cotta.

Event will be rescheduled if a rain out occurs. To make a reservation, call 678-431-8753.

Fresh pressed juices, smoothies and signature cocktails are making a landing onto the menu. Gather up the flock and fly over for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch!
