Things are constantly changing at Seasons 52. Described as a "celebration of what is now," the Coral Gables restaurant serves "the best of each season, straight to your table," according to its menu. Dishes vary based on the time of year. If you're lucky, you'll get wild Alaskan halibut served with spring vegetables, succotash, chorizo, and romesco sauce ($29.95). Or you'll luck into wood-grilled pork tenderloin paired with sweet-potato mash, bacon sauté, French green beans, and cipollini onions ($17.95). Every plate, from appetizers to entrées, is prepared "with rustic techniques like oak-fire grilling and brick-oven roasting." And then, of course, there's the vino. Each meal can be washed down with one of the 52 wines handpicked by George Miliotes, one of the world's 250 master sommeliers. This sort of gastronomic experience is certainly not what you'd expect from a corporate restaurant (the Miracle Mile hot spot is owned by Darden Restaurants), but serving gourmet dishes is Seasons 52's specialty. And with no dish on the menu exceeding $30 and 475 calories, you can indulge without going broke or having to hit the gym afterward.
