It doesn't get much more industrial looking than Silo, the new Mount Vernon Triangle restaurant aiming to open by January 4. The space, designed by owner Reza Akhvavan, includes tables made out of metal tubing, exposed brick and wood, original plaster and concrete floors. About 80 percent of the restaurant is fashioned from reclaimed materials.
Decorating the walls: artwork from Paris-based artist Ali Soltani. The restaurant has room for 20 people at the bar and 50 in the dining room. One goal for the warmer months is to add a roof deck, which is a rare feature for the neighborhood. The menu will draw from French and Swiss cuisine, courtesy of chef George Vetch, a C.F. Folks veteran. Cocktails will lean classic, with a French influence.
