Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails’ Garden Dinner Series returns on April 28 on select Sundays through October.

These straight-from-the-vine dining experiences celebrate the spring, summer, and fall seasons, allowing guests to experience Milton’s Acre, the onsite garden of this treasured Crabapple restaurant.

Each year, Milton’s culinary team looks forward to exploring the possibilities Milton’s Acre—where local produce is harvested and showcased in each garden dinner—presents. Guests can anticipate heirloom fruits, vegetables, and herbs that will share the spotlight with carefully selected meats and seafood. 

Each dinner starts at 5 p.m. with a reception of passed hors d’oeuvres and libations in Milton’s Acre, where attendees receive an exclusive tour of the garden. Guests then retire to an outdoor, four-course dinner of inspired comfort foods served family-style with paired wines, all accompanied by the soothing sounds of a cellist. The ambiance, reminiscent of rural farm life, provides a tranquil setting for Milton’s new Southern cuisine.   

The Garden Dinner menus are curated a few weeks before each event based on what is in season. Guests can expect to enjoy tastes inspired by Milton’s Acre’s bounty, such as delicate squash blossoms stuffed with prosciutto and cream cheese, pimiento cheese and crawfish, and roast duckling with fingerling sweet potatoes, oyster mushrooms, heirloom snap beans, and candied pecan apple butter.

All dinners are scheduled on Sunday evenings. 2024 Garden Dinner Series dates with available seating:

  • April 28
  • May 5 (Cinco de Mayo theme) & 19
  • October 6, 13, 20 & 27

Tickets to the Garden Dinner Series are $165 each (including wine, tax, and gratuity) and may be purchased online in advance. Tickets are not transferable for other dates and cannot be refunded within 48 hours of the event.  

Located at 800 Mayfield Road, Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails is nestled in a restored 155-year-old farmhouse located in the historic district of Crabapple. The charming North Fulton restaurant serves contemporary Southern cuisine that utilizes fresh, local ingredients, many of which come from the restaurant’s on-site garden, Milton’s Acre.
