Milly Valley Kitchen (MVK) is the shared passion of husband-and-wife team Mike and Abby Rakun and their desire to prepare food that is both nourishing and delicious. The restaurant is a tribute to the Mill Valley Region of Northern California, a community known for its thoughtfully crafted food and credited with the birth of the Slow Food movement and sustainable farming.  MVK serves locally sourced, farm-to-table food in a cozy, fine dining atmosphere. They also have a lovely outdoor patio.
