One year ago we learned that Reza Akhavan, a former GM at Shaw’s Tavern, had plans to open a restaurant in the former Fun Fair Video space on 5th Street NW.
These last few weeks, as the opening approaches, we’ve learned the restaurant will be named Silo, to represent its raw and industrial interior as well as the fresh ingredients and grains used in its cuisine. It will accommodate 20 people at the bar and 50 people in the dining room. Working alongside Akhavan as Restaurant Manager will be Charlotte Devilliers, most recently with Northside Social Coffee Shop and Wine Bar. Silo’s kitchen will be helmed by Executive Chef George Vetsch From 2009-2013, Chef Vetsch was Executive Chef (American Classic cuisine) at C.F. Folks. During his tenure there, the restaurant was awarded the 2013 James Beard Award, Classic American Restaurant and the 2013 RAMMY Award, Casual Restaurant of the Year.
