Lunch at Australasia Manchester

Now the indulgences of Easter Weekend are over, you’re probably looking for somewhere to have a lighter, yet equally indulgent lunch this week? I know I am! Well look no further than Australasia, on Deansgate in Manchester.

I’ve been to Australasia a few times now, usually for birthdays or date nights and it never disappoints. But I’ve always been in the evenings for dinner and cocktails. It hadn’t even occurred to me that they’d also do a lunch menu. I don’t know why it hadn’t, but I’ve been missing out all these years!

The lunch menu is served Monday to Fridays before 5pm, so perfect for those leisurely business lunches (or those leisurely non-business lunches) and is in the same tapas-inspired format, where you choose three to four dishes from a list and they are served as soon as they’re ready. I love eating like this, as it gets rid of the food envy sometimes experienced when you’re forced to choose one dish and you secretly want at least a bite of what your friend ordered!Continue reading

Hawksmoor Manchester

I have been dying to go for dinner at Hawksmoor, Manchester for about a year now. I was pregnant when it first opened and refused to go and have an over-cooked steak, so I had to wait. And finally the time came…the hubby and I were both free, so was our babysitter and off we went on a Friday night. Excitement doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt (sad, I know) as we jumped into a cab and made our merry way to the restaurant.Continue reading

Antica Osteria – Lucca, Tuscany

On our recent trip to Tuscany, we headed back to where is quickly becoming one of our favourite places to spend time – Lucca. It was a gloriously sunny day and we were hungry…

After wondering through the town and enjoying perusing the windows of the stunning shops, we stumbled across a little courtyard filled with perfectly set tables and fairy-lights in the trees. A promising start for an al fresco dining experience. We quickly had a glance at the menu and all agreed this would be our spot for a special lunch. This was the Antica Osteria, the restaurant at the 5-star Hotel Noblesse, in Lucca’s city centre. Continue reading
