About

Oncore by Clare Smyth at Crown Sydney

The first and only British female chef to hold three Michelin stars in the UK, Clare Smyth, has opened her first international restaurant, Oncore by Clare Smyth at Crown Sydney.

Her London restaurant, Core, was the first to ever enter The Good Food Guide with a perfect score of 10 out of 10 in its opening year. With an emphasis on sustainable food and paying homage to Core, Oncore is an exceptional dining experience overlooking one of the most incredible views of Sydney Harbour from level 26 of Crown Sydney.

“Crown Sydney is 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.”

Chef

Clare Smyth

Hailing from the United Kingdom, Clare grew up on a farm in Northern Ireland where her passion for food and nature began. Early in her career, she trained in some of the most celebrated kitchens in the world, including Alain Ducasse's Le Louis XV in Monaco. She also worked under Gordon Ramsay for 13 years where she was Chef Patron before opening her own restaurant in 2017 - Core by Clare Smyth in Notting Hill, London.

Clare has received numerous awards and accolades including the World’s Best Female Chef award by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. She is an active member of the international culinary community and has been recognised for her services to the hospitality industry with a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2013.

“I named my first restaurant ‘Core’ as it is from the heart, a seed of something new, and has strong ties to nature. As the new restaurant will build upon the success of Core, it seems fitting to call it ‘Oncore’ — a play on the word ‘encore’ meaning a follow-on performance demanded by the audience.” - Clare Smyth

Food Philosophy

Locally sourced

Clare Smyth’s London restaurant places an emphasis on natural and sustainable food, sourced from local farmers and food producers. With all the extraordinary produce that Australia has to offer, this is something that Clare is excited to replicate at Oncore.
“The quality and diversity of the produce available in Australia is incredible. I look forward to spending a lot of time there further exploring its food and wine regions to create our menu which will showcase the best produce sourced from Australia’s most dedicated farmers and food producers."
