Silo on 7th, the 7th Street rooftop restaurant focusing on burgers and beers, is now closed. A tipster told Eater it held its last day yesterday, Sunday, July 15. Silo’s phone number is currently disconnected and online ordering is disabled.

The Eater tipster also shared that the server said the restaurant space has new owners, who will turn building into a gluten-free restaurant. Eater has reached out for more information, watch this space for more updates.

Update, 2:34 p.m.: Silo confirmed the shutter and confirmed that Wild Wood Bakehouse, the gluten-free bakery, is taking over the location. Eater reached out to find out what the new restaurant will entail.

Silo focused on serving speciality burgers named after nearby streets (the Navasota with ground pork, grilled avocado, and serrano pepper; the Comal with a black angus patty and bacon; the vegetarian-friendly Medina with a black bean burger), along with sandwiches, snacks, and Texas beers and spirits.

Owner David Rightmer opened the restaurant on March 2014, after two and a half years of construction. The address was previously home to a historic tortilla factory, Tony's Tortilla, where the still-standing silo was used for corn storage.

Nearby shutters include Spanish pizza chain 100 Pizzita's only American location. Other Austin burger closures include Michael Symon’s Austin spot and East 6th Street's Sputnik. El Chilie Group’s burger bar El Sapo relocated from Manor Road to East 11th Street.
