♥ what's good now at seasons 52.

most week nights are the same for me. i leave work, drive to my mom's and pick up henry, 
come home and eat dinner, spend time with the boys and fall asleep after a few episodes 
of thomas the tank engine or master of none (my new favorite show!)

but this past monday night was different!!! i spent my evening at seasons 52 in chestnut hill,
a wonderful upscale restaurant that changes it's menu--you guessed it--with each new season.
 celebrating "what's good now," means that diners are always offered exciting 
new dishes made from the freshest, of the moment ingredients.

 a few local food/wine bloggers and i were invited to bid farewell to the fall menu (yum!)
 as the winter menu would be switched over the very next day! 

as the manager explained, 95% of the time, seasons 52 likes to say yes to the customer-
and they did just that, accommodating my picky vegetarian diet, as well as others
with dietary restrictions. the blistered shisito peppers and hummus duo with
crisp hawaiian sea salt lavash (not pictured) were among my favorite
appetizers served that night! the flatbreads were light and flavorful,
and the drinks were plenty :)

lastly, i ordered the vegetables and pasta, which was delectable-
especially because it featured more vegetables than sauce, which
is something i don't normally encounter in my vegetarian travels!

lastly, the mini indulgences were a sweet way to wrap up a rather indulgent,
extra-ordinary meal. i tried the mocha macchiatto- which was sinful-in a good way :)

be sure to check out the new winter menu at seasons 52! 
your taste buds will thank you!
