My Favorite Things: Chris Miller

Chef/owner of Miller's Near and Far, Chris Miller grew up in the art world, ran a gallery, and was a fashion photographer before becoming a restaurateur. He's one of those chefs we were itching to talk to about all his favorite things, as we expected a delicious smorgasbord from different industries. Turns out, we were right...

Best vintage buy on eBay: A 1971 Volkswagen van.

Place I love to visit that’s rich in history: The Museum of Natural History in New York City.

My secret to looking timeless: A white t-shirt.  

Most powerful photo I’ve ever seen: The photo of Tiananmen Square by Stuart Franklin of Magnum Photos in LIFE magazine, 1989. 

Best souvenir I’m glad I brought back home: I always take a ton of pictures. Those are my favorite souvenirs. 

Favorite vintage fashion trend: I like vintage sunglasses. 

Smell that makes me feel most nostalgic: Roast chicken

Favorite family recipe: My father used to make us lobster fra diavolo in the sumer.
