Christ Church Presents “Dining in the Dark: A Famed Restaurant Critic’s Struggle with and Triumph Over Depression”

As the restaurant critic for the New York Times, Bryan Miller was a household name among restaurant goers in the greater New York City area and beyond. He dined out over five thousand times across the United States and abroad, becoming known as the best restaurant critic in America.

A graduate of Colgate University, with a degree in Journalism from Columbia University, he won several James Beard Awards for his writing and is listed in the Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America. 

Miller will join David Michonski in a Q&A hosted by Christ Church to speak about his battle with Bipolar II disorder, which ruined his life professionally and personally, and talk about how he overcame his depression and rebuilt his life.

The event is Sunday, January 16, at 11:15 am in person at Christ Church Parish Hall, 254 East Putnam Ave in Greenwich, or livestream here:

This talk is free and open to the public. Starbucks coffee and refreshments will be served.

Christ Church is a lively community of faith composed of people with diverse backgrounds, circumstances, and spiritual journeys, bound together by God’s love for all people everywhere and united in the common mission to seek and serve God in all persons. We fulfill this work through the dedicated ministries of over 300 volunteers annually, who serve on more than 40 commissions, committees, guilds and task forces. In addition, the church hosts and supports more than 20 community meetings per week including 12-step programs, choral and music groups, neighborhood groups, and children’s programs.

The Christ Church Preschool is a regional leader in early education, and our bookstore, Dogwood Gifts and Books, is a thriving resource of both faith-based and secular books. Their 40-year partnership with Neighbor to Neighbor allows them to serve those in Greenwich who are in need of food.

The Mission of Christ Church Greenwich is to be a vibrant Episcopal community proclaiming God’s love for every human being, no exceptions. Following Jesus’ teachings is their compass for personal growth, community outreach and harmonious living. Its vision is to seek and serve God in all people through inspiration from the Bible, worship, community outreach, music, and art in our sacred historic home.
