Love for all seasons at Seasons 52, Costa Mesa


By Wendy Chen

Season52-110 GT I call Seasons 52 my PERFECT restaurant.I love everything about it!From the beautifully presented delicious food cooked with the freshest ingredients in natural cooking techniques to keep each dish under 475 calories!I always enjoy my meal – full, happy, satisfied, but never heavy.The service is always outstanding and the ambiance is always fun but relaxing.

Season52-24 GTSeasons 52 offers seasonally-inspired menu which changes weekly (thus the number 52).Everyone raves about the flatbread.On the special menu was Spicy Pork Taco Flatbread.Don’t worry, it’s actually quite mild in heat but strong in flavor.

The Grilled Shrimp & Scallop Ceviche (Grilled Pineapple, Coconut, cevicheCilantro, Lime, Jalapeno) was a really nice variation from the traditional ceviche. It was creamy, a little sweet, a little tart with a bit of heat.The scallop was so tender I had ask the server if it was cooked.I’ve never tasted any cooked scallop so tender before.Wow!

chicken capreseNew on the menu was this Grilled Chicken Caprese (Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato, Arugula, Basil Pesto).I like a good Caprese but never had it with a sandwich.It was a delicious hearty sandwich and I was so shocked that they were able to keep this within 475 calories!

Everything was amazing up to this point but when the Oak-Grilled Filet Mignon (Cremini Mushrooms, Asparagus, Red Bliss Potatoes) came out, it earned the star of the meal.It was perfectly cooked (medium), melt-in-your-mouth tender in very bite.The red wine sauce didn’t filetoverpower the meat.I have to say it was one of the best prepared/cooked filet Mignon I’ve had for a long time.

To tell you the truth, I didn’t have much room for dessert but I could not skip the famous Mini mini indulgencesIndulgences!They are little shots of heavens!

The Spring Menu started on March 19, 2013.So if you haven’t been there lately, check it out!
