- Complimentary chef's choice dessert when you dine at the restaurant
One of the first seasonally-focused restaurants to open in historic Germantown, Silo, born in 2012, is known for its bold take on modern southern recipes. Here, you can expect to find comfort foods with interesting twists, from buttermilk cheddar mac ‘n cheese with bacon jam to pork chops with Chinese black bean glaze to seared catfish with coconut/lime curry. Co-executive chefs Murphy Vaughan, a native of Meridian, Mississippi, and Chris Bowater, from Jacksonville, claim southern cooking as their birthright and have mastered their culinary arts right under Silo’s roof, learning the ropes from former head chef Alex Grainger. A nod must be given as well to Silo’s exceptional interior design. In the central dining room, a cylinder of gracefully woven birch planks rises above the ceiling, giving diners the impression of looking up into a…silo, of course. “Silo is off to an impressive start in a gorgeous setting,” said Nashville Scene back in 2012…and it’s only gotten better.
