Episode 12: Lake Living with M.G. Farris
How do you top having a restaurant on some of the most premier real estate in downtown Atlanta? Well, that depends on what your goals are. For M.G. Farris who grew up spending time, like I did, in one of the most remote spots in the north Georgia mountains, you go back to what you love. Lake Living. And there’s no better spot than Lake Burton.
MG’s newest venture Milton Park is as much the antithesis of his midtown flagship restaurant as is the location. But what makes them both so successful is the way they cater to the clientele they serve. While Medici’s on the corner of 10th and Peachtree totally reflects the midtown vibe of the Atlanta restaurant scene, Milton Park absolutely resonates with the old school lake feel. That feel has been missing on Lake Burton for so many years.
While becoming a successful restaurateur, M.G. has created a vision that not only aims at financial success, it drives the kind of lifestyle that fulfills all areas of his life and family. Not only pleasing customers with delicious food but creating a life he loves along the way. Wakeboard sessions before work on a surface like glass, making food for people he cares about and involving all the people he loves. That is a lifestyle. And the best part is what he has in store….. Check out the lake livin’ with MG Farris….
