Fresh, local ingredients prepared with an eye toward health and presentation set this full-service concept apart. The contemporary American menu changes four times a year in tune with the seasons. Selections include oven-roasted flatbreads topped with vegetables, fresh herbs and cheese; caramelized sea scallops; and grilled rack of lamb. Mini desserts such as pecan pie, carrot cake and chocolate peanut butter mousse are served in shot glasses. Specialty cocktails and an extensive wine list complete the dining experience. Seasons 52 is a portfolio brand of Darden Restaurants Inc. Expansion plans into Texas, suburban Chicago and southern California are in the works for this year.
