Atherton venue in Sydney to open

British chef Jason Atherton will see his ‘Street Social’ franchise spread to Australia next year with the opening of a new venue in Sydney.

20151022_145649-af90d8bdKensington Street Social will open at The Old Clare Hotel on 13 January 2016 an follows openings in New York and Dubai this year as well as restaurants in Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai before them.

Atherton is opening Kensington Street Social in partnership with Loh Lik Peng, director of boutique hotel and restaurant group ‘Unlisted Collection’.

The new restaurant will seat 120 and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week with a menu focused on British-Mediterranean cuisine.

Atherton and executive chef Rob Daniels who have worked together for a number of years are said to be working “closely” with Australian producers to ensure both the menu and wine list is a “true reflection” of the country.

Atherton said, “I’m so excited to be opening my first restaurant in Sydney. I’m all about sourcing the best produce, and here the ingredients are just incredible – Australian black truffles, the seafood – so I’m looking forward to using them to reinterpret a few of the signature dishes from my London restaurants.

“I’ve had many Australian chefs in my brigade over the years, including my executive chef Rob and pastry chef Adrian Crabb, so it seemed like a natural step to come to Sydney and get the team back together.”

Highlights from the menu include: ‘English Breakfast tea and toast’ – with wild mushroom tea served in a teapot with relish and bone marrow toast; marinated salmon, tatsoi salad, chilli, wasabi ponzu; sea urchin risotto, Moreton Bay bug tail, lemon, bottarga and Zokoko alto beni soufflé with macadamia ice-cream.
