Summer is on at Seasons 52, the highly-acclaimed fresh grill and wine bar restaurant at South Coast Plaza. They’ve just introduced their new summer menu. I previewed it, and I can tell you as a Vegetarian, it’s quite delightful.
One of the main dishes on the menu was created just for Vegetarians. Chef Tim told me that it was one of the dishes he put the most time into. “A lot of love went into it,” he shared, explaining how it isn’t just another main meal minus the chicken or beef. I personally love that, as it’s rare that you hear someone has made a special dish for the herbivores out there.
The new Veggie dish is called the Summer Vegetarian Tasting “grains of life,” with a soft taco, chili relleno, vegetables, cedar-roasted tofu and mango chutney. Like everything on the menu, it’s just 475 calories and was light, yet very filling. It’s worth foodie-noting that the non-Veggies in the crowd seemed to find it quite delicious as well.
There really was so much to enjoy on the new menu from the Watermelon Refresher Cocktail to the Organic Tomatoes with Warm Crusted Mozzarella, below.
As mentioned, the star dish was this Summer Vegetarian Tasting.
And the Mini Indulgences, including the Berry Cheesecake with fresh blueberries, raspberry sauce and graham cracker crumbs, made for a divine end of the meal.
Visit Seasons 52 this summer at South Coast Plaza before the summer cuisine changes over to fall. The restaurant changes its menu four times a year with weekly fresh features to truly capture the flavors of the season. And, as stated, but worth repeating, nothing on the menu is more than 475 calories, from the signature flatbreads and appetizers, to all entrees and the popular Mini Indulgence desserts.
