Double Up on Garden and Fun Dining: Milton’s Farmyard Chowdown Sept. 17 and Garden Dinner Sept. 24
Have it all over back-to-back weekends -- from a lively Southern spread to a vine-and-dine garden dinner at Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails in historic Crabapple. Executive chef Derek Dollar stocks a hefty spread of low country boil, oysters and gracious plenty fried chicken and sides for this month’s Farmyard Chowdown feast from 6-8 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17. Live music and lawn games entertain the whole family, from wee ones to strong farmhands. Buy tickets online, $40 per person and $20 for kids 12 and under (plus small service fee; tax, alcohol not included).
Dig dining in the garden? So does Dollar, and he’s eyeing Milton’s Acre, the restaurant’s one-acre garden, for another harvest-to-plate Garden Dinner Series dining experience on Sunday, Sept. 24. Relishing the harvest begins upon arrival over hors d’oeuvre and libations at the 6 p.m. reception. Go ahead and tour the garden, drink in hand, before a memorable four-course meal of inspired comfort foods and wines served family style accompanied by ambient starry skies and the soothing sounds of a cellist. Menu items may include delicate squash blossoms stuffed with prosciutto and cream cheese or pimento cheese and crawfish; or roast duckling with fingerling sweet potatoes, oyster mushrooms, heirloom snap beans and candied pecan apple butter. Purchase tickets online, $125 per person, per dinner. Price includes wine, tax and gratuity.
For either dinner series, tickets cannot be refunded within 48 hours of the event. Tickets are not transferrable for other dates. Please call 770-817-0161 for more information. If this month’s calendar is full, look ahead. Milton’s hosts its last Farmyard Chowdown of the 2017 season on Oct. 8 and Garden Dinners on Oct. 1 and Oct. 15.
