Ambitious Sydney fine-diner Silvereye will close its doors this month after less than a year in business. Staff at the Chippendale restaurant were given the news at 10.30 this morning. 

Chef Sam Miller, an alumnus of Noma, has made no public comment on the announcement, other than to say he'll be moving home to the UK. Further plans for the attractively appointed room, set on the second floor of the boutique Old Clare Hotel, are yet to be determined.

The news about the tasting menu-only restaurant follows a spate of closures that has rattled the Sydney dining scene in recent months, including Frank Camorra's MoVida Sydney, Korean hot spot Moon Park in Redfern, and Mark Best's Marque - which served its final meal on June 30.

The restaurant's publicists have scotched rumours that a branch of Burnt Ends, the acclaimed restaurant run in Singapore by Australian chef Dave Pynt and Old Clare hotelier and restaurateur Loh Lik Peng, is on the cards. It's business as usual at Automata and Kensington Street Social, the hotel's other two eateries.
