The Bentley Group has announced it will open a second Sydney restaurant this year, and this time, Brent Savage and Nick Hildebrandt are exploring the cuisines of China, Korea, and Japan.
King Clarence is slated to launch in October with a 100-seat industrial-esque dining room, a kitchen decked out with a custom BBQ and grill, and a central seafood tank.
“Nick and I love eating Asian food and are really looking forward to applying the Bentley Group ideas and philosophies to this style of food,” says Savage. “We want King Clarence to be fun, loud, and busy.”
The venue, located on the corner of King Street and Clarence Street in the CBD, marks an exciting new chapter for the group, which opened Brasserie 1930 in March.
Sommelier and Co-Owner Hildebrandt says King Clarence will appeal to multiple guests, from those who are looking for a full sit-down meal to others who just want to drop in for a drink and a snack.
“It’s been a big year for us with the opening of Brasserie 1930 in March, and we look forward to rounding out the year opening a venue Brent and I have long been planning,” says Hildebrandt.
King Clarence will join Bentley’s portfolio of five restaurants which includes Yellow, Cirrus, Monopole, Bentley Restaurant + Bar, and Brasserie 1930.
Official opening date to come.
