Relying on small-farm produce and coastal Carolina seafood, Milner's chefs and co-owners John and Buddy Milner revamp traditional Southern fare with contemporary culinary techniques as highlighted on their tasting menu. Slathered in tomato chutney and Benton Farm's country ham, a short stack of fried green tomatoes dives into a dollop of basil cream cheese for a mouthwatering experience now entirely free from the presence of Kathy Bates. Buttermilk-fried chicken holds court atop a throne of Carolina gold rice, collared greens, and tomato gravy, and moravian cookie-crusted salmon serves as the marine foundation for a trinity of spinach, sweet-potato flapjacks, and fennel slaw, all drenched in a vanilla-bean beurre blanc sauce. Bourbon pecan pie stumbles into a side of salted-caramel ice cream as flourless chocolate tortes deliciously breach their civil duties.
A softly lit interior founded on hardwood floors serves as a backdrop for Milner's culinary experiences, with exposed brick walls standing warm against glossy tables. Milner's well-stocked bar pours plentiful potables and hosts the jazz stylings of the Charlie Culbreath Trio every Sunday night, while also providing a solid structure to lean against nonchalantly.
