Last weekend the Chicago Foodie Sisters attended a media lunch at the new Oakbook Center location of Seasons 52. This will be the 23rd location for Seasons 52, which originated in Florida and has one other Chicagoland location in Schaumburg. Describing itself as a "casually sophisticated fresh grill and wine bar," the staff incorporate seasonal produce and organic meats into wonderful presentations with private dining and a chef's table available. There's so much to say about Seasons 52, that we'll spread it out into several posts.
Our visit began with two flatbreads, Artichoke and Goat Cheese and Chipotle Shrimp varieties, both of which were bursting with flavor on a crispy flatbread. Next was the amuse of Lump Crab and Haas Avocado (pictured below) paired with Aveleda Vinho Verde.
The Frank-Lloyd Wright inspired design with Honduran mahogany is breathtaking. This Monday, May 21, is the first opportunity for the public to get a taste. More postings to come on Seasons 52.
