We went for a weekend lunch at Seasons in the Park
It has one of the finest restaurant views in the town
But Seasons is more than just setting. It’s a good restaurant in its own right.
First came the complimentary bread.
This is freshly baked baguette style bread, crusty on the outside and soft and slightly chewy on the inside, served with a whipped butter.
Next was the clam chowder
This is a new england style cream based chowder, with lots of onions, celery, clams and bacon, drizzled with truffle oil. It’s an excellent chowder.
This was followed by Tuscan flat bread
This is a thin crust flat bread topped with sweet carmelized onions, arugula, soft goat cheese and balsamic vinegar. The flat bread is crisp on the bottom and edges, but still soft inside. The goat cheese was soft and mild with a little saltiness, and the sweet tanginess of the balsamic vinegar contrasted nicely with the peppery arugula.
My lunch entrée was the salmon burger with fries
This is a grilled salmon filet, served in a toasted sesame seed bun, topped with a remoulade and a couple of slices of purple onion. It comes with fresh coleslaw and freshly chipped french fries. The salmon was grilled to a medium, and seasoned right. Bun was toasted with the slightest char, but still soft inside. The remoulade was mild, and added some richness to the taste. The fries were light and crisp, and seasoned right.
The room, particularly on a warm sunny day, is bright and airy, with one of the best views in town.
The service was stellar. Prompt, polite, helpful, attentive with just a pleasant sense of humor thrown in.
I’ve been to Season several times before, and the service and the food quality have always been exemplary.
