Chef Mark Bliss may be leaving Silo, the restaurant he opened on Austin Highway in 1998. But, while tending to family business, he will also be considering his own. And, he won't be relocating elsewhere.
"No, we're staying here," he said. "But I'm going to be thinking about my next project." Considering restaurant concepts is one; starting to write his cookbook is likely, too.
Bliss spent a total of 13 years at Silo, on Austin Highway, with a two-and-a-half year break. Prior to that he worked as chef, with Bruce Auden, at the original location of Biga on Locust Street.
"I need to reunite with some of my relatives, make some family visits," says Bliss. His departure from Silo was friendly, and he says he left an "open door" behind.
