3. The patio
If you can’t make it our for a Garden Dinner at Milton’s, you can still relish dining under the stars thanks to their pretty patio. On a recent Sunday evening visit, cooler temps and the setting sun made for a striking night to dine outdoors. A talented local musician set the mood with his vocals and guitar while couples and families enjoyed a casual but sophisticated meal and conversation. There’s an outdoor deck, too. (Note: Don't be scared of a few flies—they're easily shoo-ed away with the wave of a hand and once you light the special candle in the middle of the table. The relaxed vibes of the patio are still worth it.)
4. Chocolate mousse cake
We almost didn’t order the chocolate mousse cake—but our knowledgeable and friendly server suggested it would go nicely with the Katherine Goldschmidt cabernet we were sipping. Boy am I glad we followed his recommendation. The smooth and rich dark chocolate in the mousse cake makes for a decadent treat that complements a bold, full-bodied red exceptionally well. Make sure you save space—and some wine—for it.
5. The wine list
While Milton’s shakes up some solid cocktails (they should, considered it’s part of their name), the extensive wine list offers a great variety and plenty of gems (I was excited to see one of my favorites, The Prisoner). If you’re not a wine connoisseur—and even if you are—the wine menu makes it easier to decipher what to order depending on your preferences or mood. Divided into categories like Light & Crisp, Rich & Floral, Lush & Full, Big & Bold, etc., it’s easy to navigate the plethora of choices.
