Uniting friends & great food Since 2010

The Restaurant- "The Union Kitchen" by Paul Miller

The Idea: “I came up with the idea while a student at Purdue. The meeting spot for my friends and teammates was the student union. To me, UNION means the place where friends and family come together.”


The Concept: “Our concept is global cuisine. The Executive Chef and I go to the farmers market twice a week to source out the freshest ingredients, and develop the most appealing menu possible.”


Our Slogan: Global Cuisine with Southern Hospitality

Doris Miller - Owner "The Union Kitchen"


When Doris and Paul met in 2009 she was a relative novice to the hospitality industry. When they opened TUK 1 in 2010 she was a fixture at the restaurant and in the neighborhood. Doris worked every position in the kitchen and the dining room before taking over as the manager a short 2 years later. In 2012, Paul and Doris were married. Since then she has been involved in every major event that Gr8 Plate Hospitality has participated in. She has worked with our contractors and architects during the design phase, and enjoys the day to day operations. She is a WSET Level 2 sommelier and respected member of the Gr8 Plate Hospitality Leadership Team. Paul & Doris serve on the Advisory Board for Casa De Esperanza.  Doris is also the Director of GR8GIving, the charitable arm of Gr8Plate Hospitality. Doris’ bright smile can be seen in our corporate office and all of our restaurants on a daily basis.
