Two weeks ago, I was invited to a media dinner at Seasons 52 in Cherry Hill, NJ to preview the new autumn menu. Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that offers a seasonally inspired menu in a warm but trendy atmosphere. I was really impressed with everything that was served. Believe it or not, the restaurant doesn’t own a fryer. This is something that makes me very happy. Somehow they know how to make all vegetables taste delicious without basking them in a sea of oil or butter. You can even ask my husband who is Mr. Meat and Potatoes himself. He also loved the beautifully presented vegetables. The color and presentation of the vegetables would make any meat and potatoes person gravitate to filling half their plate with these beauties.
Seasons 52 uses local ingredients whenever possible. Many of their ingredients are organic. One of my favorite things about eating at Seasons 52 is that nothing on the menu is over 475 calories and most items are much lower. So you can feel good about yourself after your meal. If you eat at Seasons 52, you will be very surprised that this is a chain restaurant and has over 20 locations. Nothing there reminded me of a chain restaurant. From the grown up atmosphere to the menu that changes four times a year to the extensive wine list, this restaurant spelled fresh, local upscale atmosphere. If you want wine with your meal, Seasons 52 has over 100 wines with over 60 being served by the glass. Now feast your eyes on some of the dishes that you can order from their fall menu.
