Most striking feature:
The light installation on the ceiling. Wow! Miller’s Near & Far is a new restaurant on the Lower East Side. It’s a project of Miller and Matt Abramcyk who also run Smith & Mills in Tribeca. Inside it feels like you’re in a classic diner, but it’s designed with modern elements such as a grey brickstone wall, black and white pictures on the walls, simple wooden chairs and ofcourse the outstanding LED-light installation (architecture and design by Lloyd W. Huber of LWH Architecture). You can sit down on a table or chat with the chefs at the bar. And don’t forget to visit the toilet where televisions serve as mirrors. Miller’s Near & Far is open for lunch (only during the weekend) and dinner (every day except Monday) and it’s also the place to go for cocktails. What do they have on the menu? New American cuisine. We’ve tried a very tasty hamburger, but you can also chose for a cauliflower salad, sichuan s&p chicken wings or a pan roasted chicken. Go!
