New menu at Seasons 52
Seasons 52, the fresh grill and wine bar restaurant at South Coast Plaza, just debuted a new winter menu inspired by abundant ingredients of the season.
At the eatery, you can enjoy wood-fire grilled, brick-oven cooked and roasted specialties like venison chops and a farmers market veggie plate (none over 475 calories), sip one of the 60 wines available by the glass, and enjoy piano music in the evenings.
Chef Tim Kast is preparing an organic tomato stack salad with arugula, blue cheese, chopped bacon and a balsamic glaze, along with grilled venison chop on venison and mushroom ragout with truffle mashed potatoes.
Vegetarians will love the farmers market vegetable plate with roasted Bosc pears, butternut squash, grilled tofu and almond tabbouleh, or the roasted spinach stuffed silver dollar mushrooms, or the golden beets with wasabi sour cream, and a limited-time eggnog mini indulgence dessert.
Two new cocktails are also available: a Ruby Red Grapefruit martini with grapefruit-infused Prairie Organic Vodka and agave nectar; and a skinny chocolate espresso martini with a mix of Voli Vanilla Espresso Vodka, chocolate coconut water and agave nectar.
South Coast Plaza is at 3333 Bristol St., Costa Mesa. For more information, call (714) 437-5252, or visit http://www.seasons52.com.
