Lobster Spring Rolls, Vegetarian Options Featured on Seasons 52's Summer Menu

Summer Vegetarian Tasting
I am not sure which dish I want to try first: I love most of the dishes at Seasons 52, and the restaurant chain's new Summer Menu looks delicious. They even have something new for my vegetarian friends: a "Summer Vegetarian Tasting", which includes a soft taco stuffed with grilled peppers, avocado and cilantro, a stuffed chili relleno, and Cedar Roasted Tofu topped with Mango Chutney. 

I love seafood, so I am glad to see new seafood dishes on the menu, including: Grilled Jumbo Shrimp Cavatappi Pasta and Chilled Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls. The pasta is brightened with organic tomatoes, broccoli, and carmelized garlic. The Spring Rolls are very unique (I rarely see spring rolls with lobster!), and feature a cool salsa verde, aromatic lemongrass, and sweet-hot red chili. Seasons' new appetizer is Organic Tomatoes with Warm Crusted Mozzarella, served in micro greens with basil and pesto vinaigrette.

Lobster & Shrimp Spring Rolls
One of the things I most excited about is Seasons' featured wine this summer. The Jam Jar Moscato 2011 from Western Cape-South Africa has notes of peach, apricot, and orange blossom. I love sweet wines, and this moscato offers an unique flavor profile. As my blog readers know, dessert is probably my favorite part of every meal. Seasons' new Berry Cheesecake Mini Indulgence is something you definitely need to try. The dessert is topped with fresh blueberries, raspberry sauce, and graham cracker crumbs, and is every bit as good as the other mini-desserts on the menu. In fact, Seasons 52 provides a great atmosphere for a date night of dessert and drinks: there is usually a piano player in the evenings, and you can easily get a seat at the bar when the restaurant is full on the weekends. 

When you try out these new dishes and beverages, be sure to let me know how you liked them! Where: 463 E. Altamonte Dr., Altamonte Springs, Fla. There are also several locations in other Florida cities, as well as in Georgia, California, Illinois, Maryland, Texas, New York, and Pennsylvania.
