Seasons 52 offers a low sodium menu…bravo!

Seasons 52 is a relatively new restaurant chain headquartered in California but with restaurants across the country including here in the Chicago area. It bills itself as “A fresh dining experience that celebrates living well” and trumpets that no individual item on its seasonally inspired menus has more than 500 calories.

We’d been there before and enjoyed it, but that was before I was ordered into my current low-sodium, low-fat, low-sugar diet, so I wasn’t sure what to expect on our latest visit.

Checking the menu online before we went, I found only one low-sodium entrée option, which was disappointing to me. But when we arrived and I asked the waitress about low-sodium options, she said the restaurant has a low-sodium menu! This was the first I’ve encountered. Bravo Seasons 52, I can only hope and pray others follow your lead on this and develop low-sodium menus of their own. Each item on the menu lists its sodium content.

I had a salmon served on a cider plank which was wonderful. Tasty carrots and asparagus served as a healthy side dish. We also had an edamame appetizer without salt added which was wonderful as well.

Desserts here are served in what look like shot glasses and so several are relatively low in fat and sugar. I had a chocolate one that was delicious.

Kudos for the low-sodium menu, keep working to make these items even lower in sodium. My entrée has 643 mgs of sodium, according to the low-sodium menu. That’s half my daily requirement. Getting it to 400 would fit within my definition of what truly constitutes a low-sodium dish.
