Lennox Head is just down the road, but some people get a little set in their ways. I’ve actually heard of people who live in this area who spend years, when they are in the Shire, only shuttling between Byron Bay and Bangalow. Well if you are a Byron resident on the hodophobia spectrum, now is your chance to have a little bit of the best of Lennox Head come to you in Byron!

Last year head chef Dennis Baker and the team from Shelter at Lennox were awarded a hat in the Good Food Guide, a great achievement considering the restaurant had only recently opened. Next Tuesday 27 August Dennis Baker will be slinging plates with Francisco Smoje at Barrio Eatery & Bar from 5.30pm.

With the community in mind, Shelter uses ethically sustainable, seasonal products sourced from local producers and suppliers, plus apparently plenty of ‘verve’. I don’t mind a glass or two of that myself, but part of the deal with the Slinging Plates is that there’s special deal not only with the food, but also with the wine.

You can enjoy Dennis’s award-winning cooking with $10 / $20 plates (meat and vegan-friendly options) alongside a $10 glass of wine by Ochota Barrels at Addley Clark Fine Wines. Or you can just choose to eat at Barrio from the normal menu, which is very enjoyable even if, like me, you’re a vegetarian.

‘We are looking forward to experimenting with Barrio’s wood-fired oven and charcoal grill while bringing a taste of Shelter Lennox to the Byron Bay community,’ said Dennis.
