Eating Out for a Special Occasion
We often get asked to recommend a restaurant when guests are staying at our home and during their vacation they will be celebrating a Special Occasion. It is sometimes a difficult question as everyone has different tastes and what I like someone else may not.
However over the last 10 years while we have owned Palm Corner we always visit Seasons 52 on the Dr Phillips Estate in Florida. We have celebrated several birthdays, anniversaries and numerous special occasions here either as a couple or with friends and family. Every single person we have introduced to this fabulous restaurant has raved about it and visited it again. I don' t think there is much more of a confirmation that it is good than that.
We always have a special evening, with absolutely excellent service and food. I especially love that their menu is seasonal, hence the name Seasons 52. Everything is made from locally sourced, seasonal products and generally quite low on the calories which is always a bonus particularly as there is definitely missing from the taste.
I am always spoilt for choice. Do I choose something I have had and loved before or try something new and different. I generally go for the latter.
Their Flatbreads are fabulous, not filling so don' t spoil your appetite but really great to share while you chat and have a glass of wine or two.
The desserts in small shot glasses are a perfect finishing touch. We always leave knowing we will definitely be back.
I love that you can actually dress up to eat here so it feels like a special evening from the start. There is usually a pianist playing behind the bar which adds to the ambience of the evening.
We keep saying we will go for lunch one day because they have a beautiful outdoor eating area overlooking a lake. It' s on my list of things to do, so who knows maybe next time.
So although I know we all like different things I have no hesitation in recommending Seasons 52. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just fancy a lovely evening out where people are not in shorts and T. Shirts straight from the theme parks then hopefully you will visit next time you are looking for somewhere different. Don' t be put off it' s not ultra posh so you won' t feel out of place or under dressed it is just a special place with a great atmosphere and you have the chance to get dressed up.
