Restaurateur Christopher Miller (Smith & Mills, Warren 77) strikes out on his own with a sustainably minded New American restaurant on the Lower East Side. Miller tapped chef Nathan Foot (Northern Spy Food Co., Jardiniere) to preside over the kitchen, sourcing Pat LaFrieda meat and Greenmarket produce for dishes like beef tartare with pickled ramps and minute steak served alongside braised greens. Underneath infinity mirrored ceilings, snag a seat at a poured-concrete tabletop for seasonal fare and cocktails, including a Mediterranean mint julep (Bulleit, aperol, rhubarb bitters, blood orange and mint). The train-car-slim eatery is adorned with art from Miller's personal collection (his family owns the Robert Miller Gallery on West 26th): Portraits of Iggy Pop and Bill Henson line the distressed walls. Vintage mirrors, 1950s Tubax chairs and light fixtures salvaged from an antique ocean freighter and a mid-century laboratory give off a retro vibe.
