Miller's Near & Far is a New American Burger & Bar set in a relaxed but elevated environment catering to locals as well as destination diners. The slim, train car like room incorporates futuristic elements with a nod to the past, creating a dining experience steeped in the familiar but altered by fantasy. The classic American fare menu is an inventive take on diner classics, mainly “The Cheeseburger”, with novel approaches to local and seasonal ingredients, supplemented by a perfectly curated bar with hand crafted classic and contemporary cocktails.
Owner and executive chef Chris Miller is involved with TriBeCa restaurants, Tiny's, Smith & Mills, Warren 77 and Red Hook’s Hometown BBQ. Chris is a native New Yorker who grew up enjoying the variety of cuisines that are all at home in New York City. This has influenced his approach to the menu, with references to nearby Chinatown, the Jewish delis of the L.E.S. and local butchers. Near & Far is Chris’ first solo venture and is responsible for the extraordinary design which incorporates film noir and fine art themes, dazzling infinity mirrors and the most surprising bathroom mirror on the Lower East Side.
