How many progressive and popular restaurants actually pay close attention to calorie count for every item on the menu? The Seasons 52 chain, with its Plano restaurant the only one in Texas, promises that nothing on its menu is more than 475 calories, with some items less than 200. “You can have four courses here and not break 1,000 calories,” says server Sirus Ornzoff. And that can be a tall order for entrees that sound mouthwatering – Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon, Wood-Roasted Pork Tenderloin, or Caramelized Sea Scallops, to name a few. The key is “perfect portioning with proper cooking methods” – no butter added and no frying, but instead grilling, brick-oven cooking, roasting and steaming.
Seasons 52’s menu features more than 100 bottles of wine and 80 by the glass. The name is inspired by efforts to pluck the ripest farmer’s market foods every week and season throughout the year.
