Named as The Weekend Australian Magazine’s hottest chef of 2016, Clayton Wells has a work history that includes a bucket-list of restaurants from around the world having worked for 15 years with the likes of Momofuku, NOMA, Quay Restaurant and Tetsuya’s before opening Automata in Sydney in September 2015. 

The idea behind Automata is to translate fine dining food into a more relaxed setting. Wells combines the fine dining style of food he likes to cook with, and the casual restaurant feel that he enjoys eating in (more flexible hours and fewer rules).

Automata has a real cult following in Sydney (and highly Instagram able food) and is known for some of the most dynamic cooking in Australia. The dishes on Clayton’s regular five-course tasting menu change up every couple of weeks.

This August Clayton Wells will enter the Culprit trenches to work together with Chef Kyle Street and Jordan MacDonald to design and deliver an Automata 5-course specialty menu, in keeping with an emerging ‘bistronomy’ style of dining.

Do not miss the chance to experience one of the most exciting chefs in Australia right now at one of the hippest restaurants in Auckland.
