Meaning: A Silo is a large, round tower on a farm for storing grain or winter food for cattle. It’s also a part of a system that does not work well with other parts. (A comment on the current food system, and the opposite to how Silo the restaurant operates).
Why go: Silo’s ‘real food’ will nourish your body and your soul. They choose food sources that respect the natural order, with minimum processing, and create beautiful, tasty plates.
They cater to your every need, serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, from their on-site bakery, coffee house and brewery. Think bacon and crispy seaweed, sourdough, mussels and pork belly (but not all at once, obviously).
Why else: Located in a centuries old warehouse, Silo is an industrial-chic zero-waste restaurant. Their furniture is upcycled – tables made from industrial floor tiles, plates made from plastic bags – their deliveries arrive in re-usuable crates and they operate a nose-to-tail philosophy when it comes to meat.
They could’t be further from a silo in the business sense, offering the services of their aerobic digester (to create compost) to their residential and commercial neighbours to help reduce waste across the local community.visit website
