What they say:
Laced with tradition, Avalanche is a stunning restaurant bar on Oxford Road. The owners say that "Avalanche marks the return of Italian food to the building where it all began in Manchester. Isola Bella was the first Italian restaurant in the city when it opened and now Avalanche is bringing high-end Italian cuisine back to the same venue."
With 3 bars and a luxurious dining area, Avalanche offers a high-end dining experience with Italian fusion cooking. This means that high-quality Italian cuisine forms the bedrock of the menu but influences from across the Mediterranean, modern British cuisine and from cosmopolitan themes can also be found in the dishes. The food, plus 3 lovely drinking locations makes Avalanche a smart, romantic and charming venue for drinks and dinner on Oxford Road.
What we say:
Avalanche is bringing back old school Italian food to Manchester; with classic Italian dishes, coupled with some innovative modern twists on the menu, Avalanche is serving up a treat. The seafood specialities are also a must try with amazing creations such as fresh baked halibut served on baby spinach and topped with creamy butter sauce, king prawns and lobster - sounds amazing no?
With a sharp main bar and Champagne Lounge, the main attraction is the Sub Zero Bar & Lounge in the basement, a stunning and opulent drinking den which is perfect for drinks with friends, or even an evening with that someone special. Avalanche is upmarket and brings a touch of Italian finery to Oxford Road, well worth a visit for anyone looking for dinner and drinks in Manchester.
