In Atlanta, you can count on a few constants—traffic clogging 285 at any time for any reason, the yearly pollen apocalypse that turns everything highlighter-yellow in spring, and Miller Union delivering top-tier Southern food that’ll almost make you forget about the first two. The seasonally driven, casually upscale West Midtown restaurant has been a fixture for after-work crowds for over a decade.

A veteran in Atlanta’s upscale dining space, Miller Union delivers LeBron James-like excellence. No one can deny their impressive all-around game—from the food (the seared, herby braised duck leg is delicious and straight-forward) to their drinks (think thyme-infused gin cocktails) and award-winning desserts (order the spiced glazed donuts served with velvety ice cream). But the real focal point at Miller Union has always been their vegetable sides. This place performs vegetable wizardry like it's auditioning for a spot at Hogwarts, so don’t leave without sharing the famous vegetable plate with turnips, sweet potatoes, peppers, or whatever is in season.

Head to the bar at the entrance to sip a bourbon-based Southern Son and ear hustle in the crowd of lunchtime regulars. In the dining room—where the wrought iron window panes and weathered white shelving falls somewhere between an industrial style loft and a coastal home—expect to see couples dressed up for a night out or friends celebrating a birthday. And since entrees hover around a corporate-friendly $30 range, also expect to hear office jargon fill the semi-private back rooms. And it doesn't matter what occasion brings you here—date night, birthday, or post-work retreat to wait out traffic—every visit is a reminder why Miller Union is the always consistent, silver lining to Atlanta's quirks.

Vegetable Plate

No dish embodies Miller Union's commitment to casual sophistication quite like the vegetable plate. The vegetables retain their vibrant colors and flavors—they’re not boiled into oblivion or charred beyond recognition. The selection of vegetables changes with the seasons, and each seasonal collection harmonizes without overshadowing the others. And generously portioned, the plate is satisfying enough to fill you up with leftovers to enjoy later.

Roasted Poulet Rouge

The gently crisped, slow-roasted chicken is one of our favorites because it’s tender and juicy. It’s served lounging on a bed of earthy farro and garlicky sauteed spinach.

Churro Ice Cream Sandwich

Creamy, sweet vanilla caramel-infused ice cream comes sandwiched between two fat, lightly crisped churros, making this is one of the best desserts on a menu full of incredible choices.

Cornmeal Hushpuppies

The crunchy outside and moist, lightly sweet inside combine to make this good enough for you to turn into an entree.
