Milton-based agency, Rountree Group Integrated Communications, has announced its second annual Milton Restaurant Week (MRW), a week-long tasting event (Nov. 5 – 13) to showcase Milton restaurants through food, fellowship, and spirits. The culinary affair attracts food lovers from surrounding North Fulton communities, while giving its sponsors a chance to promote special menus and venues.
The event initially began in 2020 as a way to support local restaurants during the pandemic. “The idea began in Fall 2019 and was launched in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic to help support our restaurant community,” said Don Rountree, president of Rountree Group and founder of Milton Restaurant Week. “We launched the MRW website and social handles to give local restaurants an opportunity to showcase offerings and communicate how/when they are serving our community,” Rountree said.
Sponsoring this year’s Milton Restaurant Week, the City of Milton and Crabapple Market will be alongside a few other local businesses including:
Milton Business Council
Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub
7 Acre BarNGrill
Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails
The Union Restaurant
This year’s participating restaurants hope to impress guests by featuring several of their most popular lunch and dinner dishes, along with specialty crafted cocktails. Visitors will have the option to try new cuisine from four sponsoring restaurants at a discounted price as part of the week-long event. The selections will include cuisine ranging from pristine Southern dishes to classic Irish favorites.
The organizers hope this year’s event will be even better than the last. “Meals are a time to gather, to socialize and to engage with each other,” said Rountree. The communications agency has partnered with several local restaurants over the last decade to support its community and local businesses.
Milton, GA has been consistently highly ranked due to its prestige living community and accompanying local businesses. The thriving culinary scene has been known to contribute to the appeal of the North Fulton neighborhood. MRW is one of a few events Rountree Group has organized to support the Milton community.
“Milton offers a variety of foods from southern favorites to craft cocktails. I for one enjoy date nights, family favorites and celebrating milestones right around the corner from our home or office. We love our local partners so supporting local restaurants just makes sense. Live, work, play… and EAT,” said Ben Huard of GO Agency, GNFCC Chairman Circle Member and Founding Member of Milton Business Council.
