Having been successful in both Leeds and Liverpool, the Fazenda dining phenomenon is coming to Manchester this October.
A £2m investment by the expanding City District group will see two units on The Avenue at Spinningfields transformed into the type of stylish high-end restaurant to be found in the dynamic, cosmopolitan cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Caroll Design will be responsible for the interior design.
The 1,800sq. ft. Manchester Fazenda will boast 178 covers and an outdoor area for another 50 diners to enjoy its freshly-grilled joints of meats, ‘churrascaria’-style, carved from joints at the table with exceptional standards of service.
Fazenda offers 15 different cuts of beef, chicken, lamb and pork, while a bountiful salad bar caters for all diners, with options including sushi, smoked salmon, cured meats, hot dishes and traditional Brazilian dishes.
The impressive bar area will have 44 covers and three private dining rooms with a total of 38 covers, and together with the outdoors terrace will prove a great location to enjoy the award-winning cocktail list.
General manager, Tomas Maunier, an Argentine overseeing the Manchester launch, says: “At Fazenda we are keeping the tradition of the Gaucho alive, slowly grilling large pieces of meat in the way it has been done for centuries.
“With our authentic South American background, we offer a unique Gaucho-style dining experience at the highest level. We are confident of repeating our success in other Northern cities when we launch in Manchester.”
