This week took me to Nashville, Tennessee for a site visit to SILO, a Southern-influenced bistro in the city’s historic Germantown neighborhood. Led by Chef Clay Greenberg and Co-owner Paul Cercone, SILO will serve up sophisticated farm-to-table food in a lively, welcoming setting. The restaurant will be open for business in July.
A productive trip to the site included approving samples of various materials, including paint, concrete stain, and vintage Red Cedar for the walls. A prominent feature of the space is a Birch basket-weave cladding on the curved wall (seen above), which is lit from below by continuous LED cove lighting. The lighting in the restaurant is designed by Curtis Liberda of 2c lighting in Dallas, who I have had the pleasure of working with on a number of projects.
