We almost always enjoy a restaurant when it first opens -- all hands are on deck and the place aims to please.din
But we like to go back and check it out after the initial flurry of activity to see how it is the second time around. Often, the second (or third) visit turns out to be the real test.
We revisited the new Seasons 52 at the Cherry Hill Mall over the weekend and, guess what?
This place just gets better and better!
The flatbread is still crunchy and wonderful.
The soup is still fresh and tasty.
Our halibut entree with shrimp risotto was nothing less than divine. The halibut was sweet and tender and the risotto brought to mind images of an Italian piazza - bellissimo!
And our mini desserts and fragrant fresh coffee topped off the evening in fine style.
Our server ("AJ") was efficient without being officious or intrusive and the evening moved along with a wonderful fluidity. The atmosphere is one of inviting, informal elegance.
While there, we also got a chance to chat once again with Shannon Earley, Seasons 52's personable General Manager who was as charming and helpful as ever.
The place was alive with happy diners, which didn't surprise us at all. Season's 52 is a winner.
Hurry on over and enjoy this great new dining experience.
