We made a reservation for 8:30 p.m. and were seated promptly. The staff was friendly in a genuine way and we felt comfortable and welcome. Our table was near the window overlooking the waterway.
Outdoor seating is available but on a first come basis, you can’t reserve an outdoor table. What a lovely view! It was such a treat to discover waterfront vegan dining in Palm Beach Gardens.
The design is clean, warm and contemporary with a huge, cozy wine bar surrounded by deep circular booths. There was also a live piano player, performing 70s soft rock favorites, like Billy Joel and Elton John.
The menu is omnivore, but offers a decent vegan menu, although there are no vegan-friendly or organic wines on the menu (my only complaint).
We started with one of several flatbread options, loaded with artichokes, balsamic onions and tomato. The umami flavors stimulated the palate without being too filling.
For dinner, I ordered the cedar-planked grilled tofu with broccolini and roasted red potatoes. The tofu was delicious–spicy and smoky with a sweet fruit chutney that was unnecessary but not a problem to move aside. Steve ordered the vegetarian sampler plate that included the cedar plank tofu and veggies along with a soft taco and a cool citrus and mixed grain salad.
All that whole food really filled us up, so, no room for dessert which is just as well. The one item on the vegan dessert menu is fresh fruit.
The dinner check was surprisingly affordable– not at all what we expected for the location, the quality of the food and level of service we received, which included complimentary valet.
Seasons 52 is a delightful change of pace and we will definitely return once in awhile for special occasions–to soak up the ambiance and enjoy a tasty, simply prepared vegan meal.
