For the first time in the city of Milton's history, Milton restaurants will have an eight-day opportunity to showcase their culinary fare at Milton Restaurant Week, set to take place Nov. 6-14, according to a June 25 news release.

"Milton Restaurant Week is a meaningful way to support our local restaurateurs and provide restaurant goers with new culinary experiences right in their own backyard," said Don Rountree, founder of Milton Restaurant Week, in the release. "Our city has some of the finest restaurants in North Fulton County where food, fellowship and spirits are savored."

Nearly 50 local and chain restaurants are slated to participate in the inaugural Milton Restaurant Week, including Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub, Scratch...fresh, Cheeses & Mary, Your Pie and Cue Barbecue. A full list of the restaurants expected to participate can be found on the MRW website. More details will be released closer to the event, the release said.

"MRW is a wonderful way to highlight our restaurant community, especially on the heels of such a challenging time for our restaurateurs," said Sarah LaDart, the economic development manager for the city of Milton, in the release.
