Miller Union

Miller Union is often found on the James Beard list of nominees for their wine program. Although we live less than two hours from Atlanta we rarely spend time there, and going down just for dinner is not really an option unless we want to spend the night. While two hours is not a far drive, it’s tough after a nice dinner with great wine!

Miller Union is a restaurant that has been on my list to visit for a while. Earlier this winter I was in Atlanta visiting art galleries for a local event and found Miller Union around the corner from one of the galleries. Stumbling upon the location encouraged me to make a special effort to visit soon. Fortunately, I had a meeting to attend at the University of Georgia, about an hour and a half outside of Atlanta, so I was able to stop for lunch at Miller Union followed by a quick trip to the botanical gardens to walk off the large meal and prepare for the rest of my drive. It was a fantastic experience. The food, the service, and the wine were all impeccable. My server was able to recommend great options to accommodate my diet, he was also pescatarian, and was incredibly knowledgable about the wine. I look forward to returning with my husband one day soon!
