Seasons 52 Coming to Plano

Ryan Fletcher will serve as executive chef for Texas' first Seasons 52, the upscale grill from Darden Restaurants that promotes itself as a "change" rather than chain restaurant.

Fletcher, who spent three years managing kitchens for the Grand Lux Café, previously cheffed for The Cheesecake Factory.

"His expertise will prove invaluable," culinary director Clifford Peau enthuses in a release announcing the appointment.

Seasons 52 has reportedly endeared itself to serious food lovers who'd typically shun corporate eateries, but the changing menu showcasing seasonal vegetables hasn't won over every critic. In reviewing the first location outside of Florida, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution took issue with the restaurant's low-cal spa cuisine. "I would love to have a Mellow Mushroom with bacon and cheese delivered to the table," Meridith Ford wrote in her two-star summary.

Seasons 52 is scheduled to open in Plano's The Shops at Legacy on October 4.
