Seasons 52 Restaurant opens at the Mall in Columbia

Seasons 52 Restaurants bragging rights are that no one item on their menu is more than 475 calories, which led me to picture one of those sterile looking, healthy food mall concession type food outlets. Boy was I wrong!!!!! The visually stunning interior inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Waters with the richness of the wood, greenery and subdued lighting offers the customer a warm and inviting atmosphere. 

The bar, with Season 52 etched glasses in the hanging racks around the perimeter acts as a chandelier effect.  Totally equipped for the technological age, one can find electrical outlets for charging their smart phone all along the bar and booths.  For entertainment, there is a pianist-singer whose piano is located inside the physical bar and whose music is piped throughout the restaurant and private party rooms. 

If you are a wine enthusiast, know that one of the founders of Seasons 52, George Miliotes, is one of only 211 Master Sommeliers in the world and is hands on to finding outstanding wines. You will find them by the glass and bottle under “Drink Them Before They Are Famous” menu listing.  The menu showcases over 100 different bottles of wine, 50 of them available by the glass. 

Not only is it about each item being less than 475 calories, it is about seasonally inspired ingredients with the main menu changing with the seasons and then weekly featured special s(i.e. Seasons 52). It is said before they put lobster on the menu, that one could not find butter in the restaurant.  

At a recent media dinner many of us sampled the upcoming fall menu items.  What was very unique, they asked about dietary or life choice food preferences: i.e. gluten-free, vegan, pescetarian etc. and accommodated with special dishes.  Check out their alternative menus.

Yes, they have desserts, but you ask how do Seasons 52 keep the calories below 475 calories, the desserts are mini’s offering that little something sweet but not too much.

The Columbia Seasons 52 is around the backside of The Mall in Columbia - Broken Land Parkway near all the other large restaurants. Valet parking is available.
