Seasons 52 opened Monday at NorthPark Center, between Neiman Marcus and Dillard's in the old McCormick & Schmick's space. The casual upscale grill and wine bar seats over 400 diners and focuses on a menu that changes seasonally -- or perhaps like all 52 weeks of a farmers' market.
In addition to the large dining room, there's an outdoor patio and a piano bar, which features live music every night. The restaurant is starting with an autumn menu, including dishes like cider-glazed grilled chicken skewers with Fuji apple slaw, sun-dried cranberries, and toasted pumpkin seeds; Maple Leaf Farms sesame duck with chopped greens, apples, mint, cranberries, butternut squash and toasted pecans. All dishes at Seasons 52 are less than 475 calories.
Season 52 operates 24 restaurants across the country, including a location at The Shops at Legacy in Plano, and boasts of a "diverse international selection of 100 wines, including more than 52 offered by the glass."
