On Grosvenor Road, right in the middle of Mayfair, Avista is an Italian restaurant in the Millennium Hotel with a separate bar serving a broad range of cocktails. It was recently awarded three-AA rosettes.
It's a slick-looking dining room, with a contemporary-European menu with heavy influence from Italy. That means dishes such as mushroom and truffle salad, Cornish crab with granny smith foam, samphire, pickled shallot and coconut snow, foie gras and black kale risotto with glazed quail breast and orange zest, and venison saddle and shoulder served with cauliflower purée, red cabbage, radicchio and a port jus.
Ten wines are available by the glass, with bottles going from around the £30 mark to prestige options well into three figures.
Located in the heart of Mayfair at 39 Grosvenor Square, Avista boasts a private dining room for up to 14 people and a separate bar, ideal for pre- and post-dinner drinks or private receptions.
The main focus of Avista is the impressive granite-topped preparation area where diners can observe chef Arturo Granato and his team put the finishing touches to their dishes before service. Avista's interior has been brought to life by celebrated designer David d'Almada and sets the mood with a cool ambience making this location both light and spacious, whilst retaining a chic 'Mayfair' feel.
Diners can choose from a range of award-winning innovative dishes created with the changing season in mind. Open for lunch and dinner, Avista offers a set menu and an irresistible a la carte menu complemented by an unrivalled list of Italian wines.
