The team behind Camperdown's Acre Eatery has always prioritised education and cultivation within their daily work, and this focus will remain sharp in their newest venture – a lush, indoor-outdoor outpost in the northern Sydney suburb of Artarmon. The sustainability-focussed farm-to-table restaurant first began in Camperdown, and has since laid down roots in Melbourne, where it takes the form of a two-acre urban farm sitting atop a city rooftop.
Now, Acre Artarmon, slated to open in September 2020, will continue the trend by highlighting homegrown produce in its bright restaurant, while also operating as a bakery, café and bar, hemmed in by sprawling open-air gardens.
The new venue aims to provide an immersive experience to guests – this isn't your grab-and-go pit stop, but a space in which to linger – touching, smelling and wandering through the produce, local and exotic trees, and grassy lawns. Plus, there'll be no shortage of special events – it's set to have its own program of guided tours, kitchen demonstrations from renowned chefs, 'meet-the-maker' tastings, twilight gardening, fresh produce markets, and plenty of programs to entertain the little ones.
Acre Artarmon will be opening at 1 Frederick Street, Artarmon. Stay tuned for more details.
