Silo, from Doug McMaster, will move to Hackney Wick alongside Crate Brewery.
The move comes from a successful £500,000 crowdfund from craft brewery ‘Crate Brewery’ in Hackney Wick, whose remodelling of its east London home will include bringing the lauded restaurant to the capital.
Silo’s existing site in Brighton will be retained by McMaster and his team, and open as a new brand, according to Propel.
Silo’s current dinner offering is a tasting menu, with a small menu of snacks; it also serves a la carte lunch and brunch. The restaurant formerly divided its menus into plant-based and omnivorous
Crate, meanwhile, will use the money to introduce a small, ‘pilot’ brewery for small-batch beers, as well as opening a new workshop space in conjunction with Silo; a seating amphitheatre will also be introduced as part of the refurb, as will an extension of the ground floor bar. The opening is planned, all being well, for July this year.
