Bar Miller is basically your friendly neighborhood bar, which also happens to serve an exciting $250 omakase meal. The sushi chefs here wear Yankee fitteds, chatting up patrons as they chop kimchi and tuna to a gentle Frank Ocean soundtrack. It’s an eight-person counter squeezed into a tiny room, so conversation just happens—and there’s plenty to talk about. Like Rosella, the other East Village sushiya from the same team, this place almost exclusively uses ingredients found within the United States. That means trout from Hudson Valley, and fluke from Montauk, served with a glass of cider from upstate. And, just when we thought we were so over caviar pairings, corn ice cream with stateside caviar. Come eat a spoonful of fancy fish eggs for a special birthday dinner, or just a really delightful Wednesday.
