What a time to go out in Byron – easy to park and, for the shy retiring types like myself, a less frantic vibe in the restaurants, which are pretty much ‘locals only’ at the moment. The crew at Loft Byron Bay said they had a really great week after reopening on Thursday night, with a lot of locals coming in with a good vibe and good energy. It’s nice to be able to dine out and feel normal again, before the crowds come back, but it was also good for the staff to be back doing what they do best, especially the kitchen staff who were getting the good vibes from their new summer menu, which went over really well with the locals. Head Chef Craig Mcfarland came up with the new dishes over the break so, if you want to check them out, and perhaps have a cocktail or two, now’s the time – they are open every day from 4pm until late, as they used to be.
