A New Modern Asian Restaurant By The Bentley Group Is Opening

Eat, Sydney / 27 June 2023

And it promises to be all things “fun, loud, and busy”.

Sydney’s bustling Clarence St (already home to some of the city’s best eats) is preparing to welcome another dining addition, this time a contemporary Asian restaurant by the award-winning Bentley Restaurant Group. King Clarence will be located on the corner of King and Clarence St in the CBD, set to open later this year in October. 

Think China, Korea, and Japan all coming together in one epic culinary celebration. King Clarence will be a contemporary Asian-inspired restaurant, with dishes cooked over a custom-built BBQ and grill, as well as seafood tanks for live seafood cooked to order. To top everything off, the team have also built a delicious drinks menu to go with it.

Take your pick from 40 different wines by the glass, featuring undiscovered winemakers, and varietals suited to Asian cuisine. Or if you’re feeling fancy, opt for a rare pick inside the coveted Bentley Wine Vault, stocked with only the best of the best. There will also be a creatively curated cocktail list that puts a fresh spin on the classics, perfectly mixed to complement the dishes served.

Get ready for a space that’s not only visually stunning but comfortable and warm. Taking charge of the interiors is Pascale Gomes-McNabb, the mastermind behind the jaw-dropping designs at other Bentley Group dining spots. Pascale is teaming up with the local architects Jasmax to create a super cosy yet industrial vibe that’ll make you feel right at home. 

King Clarence will be the second spot the Bentley Group have opened in the CBD this year, following Brasserie 1930 in Circular Quay earlier in March. These two restaurants will join the group’s already legendary lineup of Yellow, Monopole, Cirrus, and Bentley Restaurant + Bar. 

“This is new and exciting territory for us. We think the dining experience at King Clarence will appeal to all, whether it be a celebration, a corporate lunch, or a late-night snack.” says co-owner and head sommelier Nick Hildebrandt. 

King Clarance is set to open in October 2023. To stay updated on the launch of the restaurant, visit their website here.
