KCRW: Seasons 52
Their KCRW Dinner Menu featured several specialties from their regular menu; all at full-sized portions! And they offered four courses for dinner…so fun!
The first course was our choice of their Signature Flatbreads to split between two people. We ordered a Blackened Steak and Blue Cheese flatbread and our friends ordered the Garlic Pesto Chicken. Both flatbreads arrived at the table on a long skinny serving board and featured a cracker-thin crispy crust. Ours was very tasty and our friends gobbled theirs up, too.
The second course was the choice of two salads: Spinach and Field Greens. The hubs and I both ordered the Spinach Salad which came with caramelized bosc pears, walnuts, and gorgonzola cheese. I was too busy enjoying the combination of pears and gorgonzola cheese on my salad to pay attention to the field green salads on the other side of the table but, our friends seemed to be enjoying them.
At this point in time, we had started noticing several racks of tiny desserts passing by our table heading to other diners that were finished with their meals. The flavors were a mystery but, it definitely piqued our interest!
At last, our third course arrived! I ordered the Southern Style Shrimp & Grits with a side of roasted brussels sprouts, my hubby ordered the Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon, and our friends both ordered the Oak Grilled Filet Mignon. My Shrimp & Grits was severely lacking in the grits department. However, the shrimp, chorizo, and bacon flavor combination was good and the brussels sprouts were delicious! [BTW, if you have not tried roasted brussels sprouts with bacon and parmesan cheese, do it. You will not regret it!] The salmon was very good and our friends raved about the steak.
By this time, we were all starting to fill up. But, we knew the rack of tiny desserts would be headed our way soon! So, we left just enough room for the sweet finish… Our waitress came by and set the metal rack on our table and proceeded to tell us what each flavor was – there must have been 10 options of cake, fruit, and miniscule pies stuffed into tiny shot glasses to choose from! We each got our choice of two flavors. What would it be? Pecan Pie, Mocha Macchiato, S’More, Chocolate-Peanut Butter Torte, Carrot Cake??? So many choices! I chose the Mocha Macchiato and Chocolate-Peanut Butter Torte; both were delicious but, very sweet. The beau ordered Pecan Pie and a Death By Chocolate cake. I got to try the Pecan Pie one and it was good but, not my favorite Pecan Pie I’ve eaten. I think the sweetness of my other desserts overwhelmed my palette for the understated flavor of the pie…
Overall, we were very satisfied with our KCRW experience at Seasons 52! The regular cost for the four course meals we got would have been over $40/person. With the KCRW pricing, that allowed us to each enjoy a beverage alongside our meal…
And this one came with rock candy! Awesome.
