If you have not had a chance to visit Seasons 52, it is worth a trip! The seasonally inspired menu always ensures something fresh and new. In addition, the health conscious approach Seasons 52 offers with each dish being 475 calories or less, makes for a fabulous dining experience.
I was invited on behalf of Seasons 52 to try some of their new winter menu items at their Kansas City location on the Country Club Plaza.
The new Winter Menu items offered at Seasons 52 include:
• Organic Tomato Stack Salad – with arugula, blue cheese, chopped bacon and a balsamic glaze
• Grilled Venison Chop on Venison & Mushroom Ragout – with truffle mashed potatoes
• Farmer’s Market Vegetable Plate – with roasted Bosc pears, butternut squash, grilled tofu and almond tabbouleh
• Roasted Spinach Stuffed Silver Dollar Mushrooms
• Golden Beets – with wasabi sour cream
My dinner started with the Organic Tomato Stack Salad. I know you may be thinking tomatoes are more of a summer item but the paring of them with the balsamic glaze, grilled red onions, bacon and crumbled blue cheese makes it a hearty dish. In the spring and summer, Seasons 52 will pair tomatoes with lighter ingredients, such as basil.
This along with the Chipotle Shrimp Flatbread that was shared with the table, was actually very filling and I could have stopped there. However, I had already ordered the Grilled Lamb T- Bone Chops for my entree and the Golden Beets with wasabi sour cream.
The lamb was cooked perfectly and the beets sweet and tender. The addition of the wasabi sour cream adds a quite a kick and is a unique twist.
Last but not least are Seasons 52 Mini Indulgences. These desserts are the real deal and are prepared with top quality ingredients. The pint sized portion let you have all of the pleasure and none of the guilt. Flavors include Key Lime Pie, Old Fashioned Carrot Cake, Rocky Road, Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse, Pecan Pie, and Mocha Macciato, just to name a few. They are the perfect ending to a great meal.
This was not my first visit to Seasons 52 nor will it be my last. I have had the pleasure of trying quite a few of these Mini Indulgences and all have been delicious.
Truly anyone can dine at Seasons 52 as they offer alternative menus featuring lactose free, gluten free, low sodium, garlic free, vegetarian and vegan.
I love the concept of Seasons 52. The dishes are flavorful and healthy and the atmosphere is elegant and inviting. The changing of the seasons and new dishes each week are inspiring and offer a unique dining experience at each visit.
If dining at the Kansas City location, be sure and ask for Ian to be your server, he took great care of us and will do the same for you.
In Good Taste,
