Oncore By Clare Smyth
Recently awarded three Michelin stars for her Notting Hill restaurant Core, Clare Smyth is the only British woman to ever gain the prestigious honour—and one of the world's most acclaimed chefs. And now, she's come to Sydney to take over the 26th floor of the sparkly Crown Tower, with its breathtaking views across the city.
At Oncore by Clare Smyth, lucky Sydneysiders will be treated to the gastronomical experience that made her so successful in London—with a couple of Aussie twists. Alongside a 3,000 strong restaurant wine cellar, Smyth will blend her heritage with unique Sydney flavours and sustainable produce drawn from the country's best farmers and producers.
Famous for her dishes that balance the tension between simplicity and sophistication, Smyth's Sydney menu will include the now-famous "Potato and Roe" dish. Imported from Core, it involves a slow-cooked Charlotte potato topped with smoked trout and herring roe, and served with beurre blanc. The Sydney version will feature potatoes produced by fourth-generation family farmers from the Southern Highlands.
There'll also be "Beef and Oyster", a plate inspired by the Victorian-era beef, oyster, and Irish stout pie. It'll hero oysters from the Wapengo and Wagonga estuaries from the South Coast of NSW and Shiro Kin Fullblood Wagyu beef sourced from NSW and South East Queensland.
For something extra-special, book a seat at the bar for Oncore's Chef's Table experience. Or, arrive early to enjoy the view and one or two of Oncore's innovative cocktails.
Oncore will open Thursday 18 November, with bookings opening Thursday 4 November here.
