Globally acclaimed chef Clare Smyth is opening the doors of her first international restaurant on 18 November in Crown Sydney.

The highly anticipated launch is due after many setbacks from lockdown.

Smyth said the fine diner would build on Core, her first restaurant in the UK.

Classic Core dishes covet the menu, including slow-cooked Charlotte potato with smoked trout herring, roe and beurre blanc, which features potatoes from the Southern Highlands.

The restaurant will also serve unique Sydney dishes such as Beef and Oyster, which pairs Wapengo or Wagonga oysters with Shiro Kin full-blood Australian Wagyu.

Oncore's wine programme showcases local and international wines, with a cellar of more than 3,000 bottles. The nearly 70-seat restaurant also has a dedicated cocktail bar overlooking the harbour.

The kitchen will be run by head chef Alan Stuart who worked alongside Smyth in 2012.

Stuart has worked in venues including Eleven Madison Park and Frantzen before joining Core in London last year.
