February 2019: CRATE brewery in Hackney Wick, London has launched a £500k crowdfund to refurbish its HQ, which would include space for a London branch of Silo.
Harden's survey result
Despite publically bemoaning that he’s had to ‘dumb down’ his food to draw locals, chef Dougie McMaster’s waste-free North Laine spot continues to win warm reviews, for “amazing-looking and -tasting healthy plates” (“lovely balance of taste and texture without overdoing things”) that “leave you wanting more” (…although not always in a good way).
“Full marks for the ecological ethos” at Dougie McMaster “waste-free ’concept’ place”, in North Laine. Despite the in-your-face composter, it’s “not too far up itself” and “the food is top-notch”.
“The composter isn’t hidden away, it’s in full view!” at this “eco-gourmet” venture in North Laine, where “local produce really is local”, and owner Dougie McMaster “cultivates his own mushrooms in coffee grounds, ferments and pickles vegetables, and aims for zero waste”. Practically all reporters are happy to “bear the risk of pretension” and uncomfy seats for the “lovely” grub… “please can we get more of this ethos into our towns!”
