Seasons 52: Eating Out Never Felt So Un-fat

Seasons 52 is known as a fresh grill and wine bar offering flavorful dishes that change seasonally.  Additionally, all dishes come in at under 475 calories!  We tried it for the first time a few weeks ago at the location in Tysons Corner Mall.  My oh my were our expectations blown out of the water.  The clean and casual meets refined atmosphere, the polished and friendly restaurant staff, and truly scrumptious yet healthy food offerings.  Of course, we were seeing The Dark Night Rises after dinner and the popcorn, candy, and Coke splurge was already planned rendering our healthy meal ruined HA.  In any case, you must try Seasons 52 and if Kristine is serving, you want her.  She was an absolute pleasure- the kind of waitress that you will talk about like I am now because she was so great.

The slideshow above showcases our meal experience including starter and entrees.  We were offered dessert at the end which includes a number of  choices from Season 52’s “Mini Indulgences” menu.  I had to snap a photo at the very least!  We had a little back and forth going on the appetizer choice having already chosen our entree selections.  My main dish choice was the Wood-Roasted Pork Tenderloin accompanied by herb polenta, cremini mushrooms, broccoli, and a shallot Dijon glaze.  I love me some polenta!  Bryan had a craving for the Roasted Artichoke-Stuffed Shrimp including wilted leaf spinach, pasta pearls, and a clam cioppino sauce.  We knew we wanted to try flatbread to start since our friend, Fahad, highly recommended it.  The trouble was that both of our top choices featured some of the same main ingredients in our entrees.   What a conundrum! Would it be Spicy Chipotle Shrimp with grilled pineapple, feta cheese, and roasted poblano peppers or Steak and Cremini Mushroom with fresh spinach and blue cheese crumbles.  Ultimately, we asked the waitress for her input and she quickly offered that Spicy Chipotle Shrimp was the way to go.  This means I won :P.  All kidding aside, we both won in the end because this whole dinner experience was superior to many other dinner outtings we’d had in the past.  We look forward to trying the next seasonal menu they have to offer.  There you have it- a glowing recommendation for Seasons 52!
