TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - USA

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the American restaurant Nalu Diner

Oliver Miller wanted to discover something new when he came to Berlin after completing his master's degree in architecture in early 2000. At first he thought of publishing a magazine about architecture, but then everything worked out differently, as he tells us during our day of shooting. Like almost every venture that the American realizes, it arises out of his own need, whenever he misses something. So he played table tennis with a friend in winter outside in Monbijou Park. It was cold, uncomfortable and no cosy opportunity to take a break with a beer. The idea for a ping-pong bar was born. A short time later, he opened Dr. Pong in Prenzlauer Berg. The bar became an institution in Berlin's nightlife.

But much more, Oliver missed, after a night in the Berlin clubs, to have directly a good breakfast, 24 hours a day, according to the American tradition, with bottomless coffee inclusive. The idea for an American diner was born. In 2012, Oliver Miller opened his Nalu Diner. "Typical American breakfast for me is a combination of things that are cooked directly before they are served. So that is what we call short order cooking in the US. That is very different from what Americans call a continental breakfast, And in any American breakfast, the eggs are very important, no matter in what form”, Oliver Miller explains. For sure, that we prepared a typical American breakfast for 50 kitchens, one city: Denver omelette with peppers and boiled ham.
