Seasons 52 Restaurant Review: Seasons 52 restaurants offer a modern and upscale but casual ambience that works for business, family and date night dining. Focused on attractively presented, contemporary but healthy fare, the kitchen prides itself on turning out good food without all the fat, sodium and calories. The menu gives each dish a calorie count. Start with any of the flatbreads; we especially like the one topped with grilled steak and mushrooms dabbed with blue cheese. Share it with friends or add a salad if enjoying it as a main dish, and your caloric intake is low while your taste satisfaction rating will be quite high. But skip the shrimp-and-crab-stuffed mushroom caps cooked in a snail-shell casserole dish and lying tasteless under an armor plating of over-baked Parmesan. Scallops are first-rate, grilled and served with a rotating arrangement of appropriate sides, such as butternut squash risotto and broccolini. Desserts are tiny "mini indulgences" of delectable and rich treats. The wine list is well chosen for the menu and its audience, with choices from Spain to South Africa and covering a wide variety of palate preferences, from dry to sweet. A substantial number of them are offered by the glass, and when ordered, are presented with finesse and good glassware. Also located at Two Buckhead Plaza, 3050 Peachtree Rd. NW, 404-846-1552.
