Clare Smyth at Crown Sydney

The first and only female chef to run a restaurant with three Michelin-stars in the UK, Clare Smyth MBE, plans to open her first Australian restaurant at Crown Sydney. Her London restaurant was the first to ever enter The Good Food Guide with a perfect score of 10 out of 10. 
“Crown Sydney is creating a world-class dining destination for the city, and I am thrilled to have my first Australian restaurant in this amazing location overlooking one of the most beautiful sites in the world. Having lived and travelled in Australia early on in my career, it feels like a home away from home and the perfect location for the restaurant.”
