What’s not to love about Season’s 52.  Now open in Oak Brook mall, the former Braxton Seafood place; completely redesigned.  You know you have died and gone to heaven when you first walk in and see the 2,000 bottle wine room - mercy.  The extensive list will have you slurping with joy and the knowledgeable staff can make the perfect recommendation for pairing. 

What I love most is that every item on the menu is no more than 475 calories.  From the marvelous flatbreads to the just- the -right size dessert s - so you can have your cake and eat it too. 

The menu changes 4 times a year – thus seasonally – with fresh new additions weekly – I think you get the point now.  Most ingredients are organic and everything is fresh and expertly prepared in the open kitchen.    Your taste buds will be having a party in your mouth!

There is plenty of room for a private party where rooms can be partitioned as well as a chef’s table for a dinner party for up to 12

The atmosphere is lively and I love the piano bar – literally – there is a piano player IN the bar in the lounge area.  Speaking of lounging, did I mention their martinis?  They give you the whole shaker so you usually get two martinis out of it. 

Best of all, your daddy doesn’t have to be rich to enjoy an evening at Seasons 52.
