Season’s 52 is a new restaurant in Century City (where the old beloved Houston’s used to be) that’s taking an upscale healthy approach. Every dish is 475 calories or less. And I hate to say it, but you can tell, even if only slightly. I like the concept, but who only orders their one meal at a restaurant? We had appetizers and dessert, so sure the calorie count is probably back up to what you’d expect an another restaurant.

I also hate to admit the biggest negative aspect of my meal: THERE WAS A PIECE OF PLASTIC IN MY ENTREE.  They handled it very well – the server had me spit the piece of plastic onto a plate so she could further examine it in the back. Then, the manager came out to apologize and explained they identified the culprit- guess it was the vegetable slicer chipped off a piece of plastic. He also offered to cover my dish on the house. Kudos for identifying the problem, and attempting to fix it, but bottom line – there a piece of plastic was in my food. For this, I have to knock off a full star and that’s probably being nice. You know I would have taken off more points if I chipped or lost a tooth.

Everything we had tasted good. But left little to remember.

Tips:

1. Order the stuffed mushrooms.

2. Save room for dessert. They serve these cute “mini” desserts in shot glasses at $2.50/piece. The peanut butter chocolate one was really yummy.

Negative notes:

1. There was a piece of plastic in my food. Not cool.

2. Outdated décor. Even though the restaurant is new, the décor is outdated. Looks like an old man’s salon. Don’t know what designer they hired to select the booth fabric, etc. Yuck.

Overall:

Skip it. Probably worth checking out if you’re in Century City. However, it doesn’t warrant a trip on its own.

What we ordered:

STUFFED MUSHROOMS WITH SHRIMP ON TOP

GRILLED SHRIMP

LAMB WITH RED WINE REDUCTION

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE & PINEAPPLE CHEESECAKE WITH DESSERT TRAY

    The presentation of the food looks nice and I agree the concept is good, too bad it wasn’t as good as it could have been!
