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. Avalanche is situated in the heart of the Italian Quarter on Booth Street between Albert Square, and the prestigious King Street in the building that used to house Lime Bar. People will remember Lime Bar's decor as very dark whereas now it is light, bright and luxurious. The Interior of Avalanche has been designed to create a relaxed atmosphere during the day, and at night Avalanche emulates the fine dining establishments of Paris and Monte Carlo. The beauty and grace of the restaurant is encapsulated in Avalanche's grand chandelier which is 100 kilos of bespoke, hand crafted crystal and crowns those walking along the stairway. Avalanche specialises in fish and seafood courses with delectable examples being: fresh halibut baked in the oven and served on baby spinach and topped with creamy butter sauce and king prawns and lobster, king prawns risotto cooked in red wine with cherry tomatoes and Parmesan shavings. Classic Italian dishes are executed with style and flair and sit alongside dishes that have been given a modern twist. Apart from enjoying a mouth watering menu whilst relaxing in the beautiful ambiance of the restaurant you can also enjoy drinking in one of three bars.
