MVP is its own award

It’s easy to get excited about Byron’s new MVP restaurant in Lawson St – it’s not only got standout dishes such as Blue Spirulina Linguine with blue swimmer crab and Yamba prawns, and Fettuccine al Ragù with Hayters Hill beef ragù sauce, feta and baby peas, but it’s also all sustainably sourced from local growers, available in takeaway (even delivered if you’re close to town) and more than half of the menu is plant-based.

fig-tree-Established in 1981, Fig Tree is one of Byron Bay’s most iconic restaurants. Perched under an ancient fig tree, the restaurant boasts sweeping views across Byron Bay creating a truly idyllic setting.

The restaurant itself is a converted turn-of-the century farmhouse complete with dairy bails, orchard and vegetable garden.

While the last few decades have seen many food trends come and go, Fig Tree kitchen has always kept its focus on highlighting the region’s superb local produce, while sourcing inspiration from abroad through various cooking styles and techniques.

fig-tree-DSC_2768Three years ago chef/owner Che decided to put his chef knives down for the winter and, together with his consultant and garden guru Thomas, they began a new project which is now referred to as the Fig Tree Garden. No trip to Fig Tree is now complete without a stroll through these gardens!

The Fig Tree menu is designed as a tasting-style menu, where guests have a choice of either four or six courses (or two for lunch) from which they make a selection of dishes within each course. ‘It allows people to really have a taste of Byron!’ says Che. ‘The menu is designed to change with the whims of nature, so it is constantly evolving to reflect that.’

Fig Tree is one of the Byron Shire’s last remaining true BYO restaurants, which inspires you to dust off that great bottle you have been saving for a special occasion. Bring it along and indulge in a true dining experience!

fig-tree--2From the moment you park your car and are escorted into the restaurant, where garden-fresh flowers welcome you and a fig leaf decorates your place setting, to the moment you leave, Fig Tree aims to delight and indulge you and remind you why it is so good to dine out!

Fig Tree is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday for its famous farmers market/garden dinners as well as every Sunday for its 100-mile Luncheon, where all produce is sourced within a 100-mile radius (but usually within 25km).

 

 

fig-tree-DHA_5988-12With the restaurant sourcing the majority of produce from its own gardens, and only opening for four services a week, bookings are limited and it is therefore advisable to book in advance.

Bon Appetit!
