Silo is coming back to Hackney Wick - but as a wine bar

Silo X Wine Bar 

One of the big new openings of 2019 has announced its reopening - but it's not quite the same as when it left. Silo, Douglas McMaster's no-waste restaurant in Hackney Wick, is going to temporarily return as a wine bar - the Silo X Wine Bar, to be precise. 

The menu - continuing to be a no-waste affair - has been reconfigured a little and includes: 

  • ‘Siloaf’ & aged butter
  • Koji quavers & dip and a Soy egg with lava salt
  • "Hot 4 U" Spring onion pancake
  • Preserved tomato, fig leaf, cottage cheese
  • Grilled Cuttlefish kebab with umami dipping sauce
  • Green pea Naan with roasted tomato dip
  • Grilled flatbread with smoked aubergine
  • Silo’s smoked pork bun.

Wines will be low or no intervention, with artisanal producers being showcased, like Sussex-based wine producer, Ben Walgate of Tillingham Wines. There will also, of course, be beer from the surrounding CRATE brewery and a new cocktail list from Ryan Chetiyawardana.

Later in the year, they're looking to move back to the full Silo restaurant experience - and we'll let you know when that happens.
