Elevated Southern Cuisine
Suppertime in Nashville became even tastier with the opening of SILO, a Southern-influenced, neighborhood bistro in historic Germantown at the corner of 5th and Madison.
A savory collaboration between Clay Greenberg (French Culinary Institute ’02), former Executive Chef of Virago and LIME, and Paul Cercone, previous owner of Normandy Farm Artisan Bakery in Charleston, SC, SILO serves up sophisticated farm food in a lively, welcoming setting designed by nationally award-winning architect Greg Ibañez, FAIA. The space features a community table, a private dining room, a large bar area, two patios and an open kitchen.
