After expanding south to Melbourne late last year, Camperdown's Acre Eatery is heading north and opening a sprawling openair restaurant on the lower north shore.

Like its siblings, Acre Artarmon will be designed to educate and inspire its visitors, while putting them back in touch with the terroir of their food. That said, it won't just be a restaurant, either. It'll also be a bakery, cafe, bar and functions space, surrounding by sprawling indoor and outdoor gardens.

So, expect to eat the likes of strawberry danishes, potato-topped pizzas and mojitos made with produce that has been grown just metres away from where you're sitting. And it will be metres, too, with a function space located inside a large greenhouse and picnic-style eating areas.

Elsewhere in Acre Artarmon, a chicken coop will provide both eggs for the kitchen and fertiliser for the gardens and a sustainable composting system will help the plants thrive. And stay tuned for a program of masterclasses, markets, twilight gardening and other hands-on green-thumb experiences.

If you want to know just exactly what to expect from the Artarmon opening, look to Camperdown and Melbourne. The former is a farm-to-table restaurant with a 350-seater dining room and a sunny terrace, while the latter is a 2000-square-metre urban farm on a shopping centre rooftop.

With an opening slated for September, Acre Artarmon is set to be suitably verdant when it opens its doors to the public, too.

Acre Artarmon is slated to open in September 2020 at 1 Frederick Street, Artarmon.
