In short order, the long-dormant 17 Orchard Street storefront will have a new occupant.  Meet Silkstone, a “burgeoning special event design, catering, and food lifestyle company.”  The eatery is on the docket at tonight’s SLA meeting (nay shitshow) for a full liquor license.

A sign in their window describes the new eatery in more detail, spin included:

“Silkstone…will be open for nightly dinner service, Saturday lunch, and traditional Sunday Roast.  By sourcing the fines seasonal and heritage produce from specialist farms, Silkstone will support local farming while providing patrons with dishes that converge on the mantra, ‘you are what you eat.’  It is the Silksonte frame of thought that the choices we make through food has a far greater impact than the plate that is put before us.  All ingredients have a story, and it is the integrity of this story, and the journey to our plate that Silkstone aims to expose and celebrate, in the form of a restaurant serving modern British cuisine influenced by local, organic, and sustainable practices.”
