Food News: Seasons 52 to Open in Garden City
Across the country, Seasons 52 restaurants have been operating with a focus on great seasonal portions that all sit below 475 calories. This feature alone is setting them apart from the pack as this country’s chain restaurants are inundating menus with 1,000+ calorie “healthy options”.
A few years ago, while in Florida, we had the opportunity to try out the Boca Raton location. It was the first time that we had seen mini desserts that were served in a shot glass, prepared by a pastry chef who surrounded himself with hundreds of empty glasses ready to be filled with the recently prepared concoctions. It was a relatively guilt-free option and because everything was portion controlled, we were able to indulge ourselves and try a few different desserts. Since that time, we’ve seen various other restaurant chains copying that formula, but none was as good as Seasons 52.
Come Spring, 2012, Seasons 52 plans to open up their first New York location (and 21st nationwide location) in the Roosevelt Field Mall. We look forward to their New York debut, and will update you as they progress with their build-out and subsequent opening.
