In a neighborhood suddenly overfilled with clubs posing as restaurants, Miller's Near & Far is a beacon on the Lower East Side. That's not to say it's understated: The tiny restaurant's décor winks at its outer-space theme. The ceiling's lined with infinity mirrors, provocative portraits hang on the walls, and in the bathroom the mirror looks like a television (or maybe it's a television that looks like a mirror?). You feel like you're in a futuristic diner. There's an open kitchen, where you can watch the chefs (and sometimes restaurateur Chris Miller himself) make American fare like burgers and a fried chicken sandwich, but here are some more delicate dishes, too. Charred octopus comes with seasonal fava beans and a light citrus yogurt, and a baby kale salad with radishes, Parmesan crisps, cotija, and a slow-cooked egg is hearty (and healthy) enough to serve as a full meal. None of the food is too fussy, making Miller's feel like the kind of restaurant you could eat at several times a week (a true neighborhood spot). Seared local fluke with English peas, ginger quinoa, and a miso-black-garlic broth is light and lovely, and if you're craving something richer, the brocolini-ricotta cavatelli with a fried egg is a satisfying bowl of pasta that isn't too rich. Skip the vanilla panna cotta and order another cocktail for dessert: The intimate atmosphere and comfortable leather banquettes will make you want to stay awhile—just like you'd feel in any good diner.
