Have you been to Seasons 52???? Well go. No, seriously, go soon.
There are currently 4 of them in Florida. They are a Darden restaurant, which means they have a pretty good degree of service and food. Some of Darden’s other chains include Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Smoky Bones and Bahama Breeze. (The Darden HQ is here in Orlando, that’s why I know their name….)
Anyway, I digress.
Here, they tell it better than I can. This is from their website.
About Our Menu
Seasons 52 promises a dining adventure in which each bite reveals a new taste sensation. Rediscover the authentic tastes of freshly harvested food. Every week of the year as different foods reach their seasonal peak of taste, we seek out the best market-fresh products, such as vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes in summer, crisp apples in autumn, hearty root vegetables in winter and tender green asparagus in spring.
Every item on our seasonally inspired menu contains less than 475 calories, and each meal is nutritionally balanced to include the highest quality lean meats and seafood, good carbs and beneficial oils such as extra virgin olive oil.
Seasons 52 combines the sheer pleasure of a great meal served well with the satisfaction of knowing you’ve served yourself well too! Each week’s menu is created by our team of talented chefs and internationally recognized Executive Chef, Clifford Pleau, who is also our Director of Culinary Development.
Did you notice how everything is less that 475 calories?????? Okay now that is per item, so don’t go insane – but Matty and I ate there last night for our anniversary and let me tell you – – it freaking rocks.
This is what we had:
Drinks: They are a wine bar with over 70 different choices. Matt had a merlot (can’t remember the name) and I had a Midnight Martini. Oh the martini was with black vodka (YUM), blueberry cordial and a splash of cranberry juice. OH SO GOOD! Also, the martinis are so big that you get 2 servings. $8.75 for essentially 2 drinks was really nice.
Appetizer: Grilled Steak & Roasted Crimini Flatbread with melted blue cheese
Salad: Autumn Greens Salad with toasted pumpkin seeds & light aged balsamic dressing
(I had Shrimp Cocktail in leiu of a salad)
Entrees: (Matt) Jumbo Shrimp Penne Pasta sauteed with fresh broccoli & roasted garlic in fresh tomato basil sauce
(Angi) Cedar Plank Salmon with roasted Yukon Gold potatoes and fresh autumn market vegetables
(Angi) Pecan Pie with Vanilla Bean Mousse
(Matt) Rocky Road (Nut Free)
These desserts are called mini indulgences and they are served in shot glasses. The perfect amount on sweet without overdoing it!
