The Italian Club, Liverpool

There’s a new Autumn menu imminent at the award-winning Italian club in Bold Street with some of the many highlights including the 2 new pizzas, a new pasta and a new meat dish, Tagliati Di Manzi Rustica’ an 8oz rib-eye steak served on focaccia bread, topped with cherry tomatoes, rocket salad and Parmesan shavings. £16.95.

The menus this autumn created by owners and real life partners Maurizio Pelligrini and Rosaria Crolla have been especially dedicated to celebrating 10 years of the Italian club that has seen the restaurant grace many national magazines and win multiple awards.


Panoramic34, Liverpool

Autumn flavours have arrived at award winning Panoramic34. Savour delicious dishes from their new a la carte menu including seasonal starters such as Red Cabbage Soup, Saddle of Rabbit, Fois Gras Ganache served with onion, charcoal powder and orange.

The mains entice you further, Grass Fed Beef Filet, Atlantic Stone Bass served with a mustard crust, poached baby leeks, morel mushrooms and vanilla cream, or perhaps Roasted Duck Breast with Hazelnut Dukkha will tempt you.

Make sure you leave room for dessert; Salted Caramel Mousse, Poached English Pear and the heavenly Date and Hazelnut cake with dark chocolate mousse all grabbed our attention. Dinner at Panoramic34 is always a delight, whatever the season, with the Liverpool skyline as your backdrop, you’ll struggle to find a more romantic setting in the city.


Second Floor Bar & Brasserie, Harvey Nichols, Manchester.

Bid adieu to summer, the leaves are changing and so is the mouth-watering menu at Second Floor Bar & Brasserie, Harvey Nichols. Head there for a taste of Head Chef’s Matt Horsfield’s new autumn dishes.

Choose from starters including a selection of market shellfish, homemade tagliatelle and wild venison carpaccio. Take your pick from meaty mains such as smoked beef short rib, an 800g beef prime rib – to share, of course. We also loved the warming seasonal flavours of the Butternut Squash Risotto– topped off with an indulgent apple Breton or Cambridge burnt cream with sea salt pretzel and toffee sauce.
