The Loft at Madrona now open

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 their other restaurant, the Madrona Bar and Grill. The space on Main Street has been transformed into a modern and elegant dining experience.

The bar has illuminated onyx with great views of the bay while also overlooking downtown Eastsound. The deck has been redesigned with infinity glass railings, giving an unobstructed view of the water. Chef Dirul Shamsid-Deen brings his culinary expertise to create a menu that features ingredients from local farmers and purveyors, ranging from heirloom salads to fresh steaks and seafood.

“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 information, call 376-7173 or visit
