The Loft opens in Eastsound

Steve and Monica Duthie have recently launched their newest addition: The Loft at Madrona.

They have updated and refinished the previous Allium and former Christina’s restaurant above the Madrona Bar and Grill, which they also own. The space on Main Street has been transformed into a modern dining experience.  The bar is illuminated onyx with great views of the bay and downtown Eastsound. The deck has been redesigned with infinity glass railings, giving an unobstructed view of the water. Chef Dirul Shamsid-Deen created a menu that features ingredients from local farmers and purveyors.

“The butterscotch pot de crème with black lava salt has been a huge hit and is sure to be an island favorite,” said Monica.

The Loft is open for dinner at 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more info: 376-7173 or
