Profile

This venue is closed.

Miller’s Famous Diner is a shiny oasis in the dingy shadow of a Borough Park el. On the corner where New Utrecht Avenue and 56th Street meet, corrugated metal gleams on a stylized version of two subway cars, which serve as the restaurant’s exterior walls. Inside, glittery red-vinyl booths and red-and-white tiled walls sparkle. The diner dates to 1947 but aims for a fifties look, with neon and kitschy totems of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. A small-town vibe completes the effect, although a soft-rock soundtrack and kid-friendly place mats from 1978 interfere with a complete time warp. As a Greek dineróMiller is an anglicization of Mylonoplous, the original owner’s nameóthe menu is comprehensive, with souvlaki and Greek salads among the indigenous standouts. Burgers are the house signature, massive nine-ounce patties cooked to order and packed with flavor. A glass case near the register holds homemade pies, like a tart blueberry with hints of sour cream in the filling. On the dairy side, there are egg creams and shakes, the latter appealingly light but still flavorful, with enough leftover to fill an accompanying battle-scarred metal cup. Add a Wurlitzer, and you’d have all the ingredients for a classic malt shop.
