Restaurant Review: Seasons 52 - Norwood

With my urge to always go someplace new sometimes I forget about places I've been that I love. We had clients in town and decided to take them to Seasons 52 in Rookwood and it was such a pleasant surprise to revisit! 

We started out with an amuse bouche - I don't remember exactly what it was - but it tasted as good as it looked. Seasons 52 has a commitment to in-season food by having quarterly menus based on seasonality. There is a main menu and also a "What's Good Now" with the seasonal specials.  

We started out with a couple of flatbreads - always delicious at Seasons 52. First up was a Blackened Steak & Blue Cheese Flatbread ($10). The steak was a little dry but I really like their flatbreads - they're so thin & crispy - always good. 

We also went for the Artichoke & Laura Chenel Goat Cheese ($9.80). Not much of a surprise that this was my favorite - we gobbled it up very quickly. Goat cheese never lasts long if I'm around! 

A couple of folks were spicy lovers and went for the Blistered Shishito Peppers ($7). I had just had these once before at Salazar. I think the ones at Salazar were better but I'm just not much of a pepper fan - so they were fine but not something I'd choose. The rest of the table inhaled them though - so I think they're worth a try.

I tried to grab a couple of pics of my coworkers & clients meals:

Caramelized Grilled Sea Scallop ($23.50) - butternut squash risotto, broccolini, lemon butter (450 calories). Many of the menu items are under 500 calories - it used to be the entire menu but they have a few items outside of that range now. It's nice that they're considering calories as well as freshness. 

Asian-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass ($31.80) - organic black rice, snow peas, shiitake mushrooms, micro wasabi (580 cal). This is one of the specials for the fall menu.

Lobster Pappardelle ($26) - fresh pasta, Maine lobster, fresh vegetables, sherry-lobster sauce (770 cal). I chose this - and man was I happy!!! This was spot-on deliciously amazing. I can't say enough good things about this - and I would get it again and again. The pasta was super fresh and the sauce was so creamy but not too rich. Then - just throw lobster on top - I MEAN SERIOUSLY?!? So delicioush!

And then for dessert - they have these mini shot glass desserts and a few of us indulged. Oddly enough - bossman and I both went for the Pecan Pie. Great minds think alike!

Why Should You Go? I forget about Seasons 52 but this was a great reminder. If you've never been - check it out for sure. If you have been - go back!
