Seasons 52 vegetarianSea­sons 52 is a sea­sonal inspired fresh grill and wine bar. A great choice for the per­fect date night out or cel­e­brat­ing a spe­cial occa­sion. The menu offers items for every taste includ­ing many veg­e­tar­ian and vegan options. The menu changes its selec­tions with the sea­sons and the  spe­cials change weekly. The best part about this unique din­ing expe­ri­ence is that none of the menu items exceed 475 calo­ries!
A veg­e­tar­ian or vegan menu can be requested by the host, but I’d rec­om­mend look­ing over the reg­u­lar menu as well because the ‘diet specific’ menus do not reflect the sea­son­al­ity changes. My favorite year-round items include the farmer’s mar­ket veg­etable plate, arti­choke and goat cheese flat­bread and the sea­sonal inspired arugula salad.
Don’t for­get about dessert! The mini indul­gences are a con­cept orig­i­nally cre­ated by Sea­sons 52. The only vegan dessert offered is the fresh fruit. Also, beware that any mini indul­gence that con­tains mousse also con­tains gelatin. I rec­om­mend try­ing the red vel­vet cake, key lime pie or the cheesecake.

Columbia RestaurantEvery­thing about the Colum­bia Restau­rant is Span­ish and Cuban influ­enced, the decor, the food, the san­gria (a must have.) Although most of the menu is non-veg friendly, they do offer an exten­sive menu with sev­eral veg options. I enjoyed the fla­vor­ful Black Bean Cakes with gua­camole as a starter and then overindulged in the starchy veg­e­tar­ian “cubana”.

These dishes are rich, hearty and fla­vor­ful. The Colum­bia Restau­rant is a great place to bring out-of-town guests to expe­ri­ence Floridian-Spanish style cuisine.

  • Queso Fundido: Tetilla cheese baked in a Rioja tomato sauce and served with toasted Cuban bread points
