Automata is a top Sydney restaurant located in Chippendale. Helmed by Head Chef Clayton Wells who brings a movable approach to a frequently changing menu. For lunch we offer the option between a 3 or 5 course menu, and for dinner a 5 or 7 course menu. Components stem from Clayton’s varied background at some of Australia and Europe’s dining institutions. Menus are formulated with freedom and energy that translates into the dining room, with beverages and pairings beyond wine. The warehouse style space along Kensington Street includes a mezzanine and communal tables.
On the 4th of October, Automata and Clayton Wells will head over to Doot Doot Doot in Victoria to collaborate the second of two chef swap events between The Old Clare Hotel and The Jackalope, Melbourne. The two chefs will collaborate on a specially designed five course tasting menu – three dishes by the guest, and two dishes by the resident chef for $110pp. To book email firstname.lastname@example.org.
