Seasonal American on the Lower East Side

Miller's Near & Far arrived quietly in May with a New American menu overseen by Northern Spy Food Co.'s Nathan Root. Chowhound loratliff thinks it deserves some buzz for chicken wings with Sichuan peppercorn (pictured); cracked-wheat risotto with wild mushrooms and asparagus; and crispy mascarpone gnocchi, reminiscent of Spotted Pig's crave-worthy gnudi, among other things.
