Celebrating milestones such as my kids (no longer kids) birthdays is an event I look forward to every year, no matter how old they turn and not only my kids, my family in general celebrate birthdays by going out to eat as it gives us all a chance to catch up in this busy world we live in. With our kids working now and become more independent, we have to take advantage of the times that we do get together and it seems that food is the common denominator.
We try to choose restaurants that we have not been before to make it a special occasion and this year I chose Seasons 52 which was a hit with all of my family members.
It had been several years that I had not been to Miracle Mile for the dining scene and at first I was hesitant of the parking situation as Coral Gables can get somewhat hectic at all times of the day but surprisingly we had no issues finding parking in the city garage and even more surprising was that it only cost us $4.00 to park, I know right?
The walk from the garage was less than a block, the restaurant was dim lit which is very nice, it gives it a not so hectic dining tone to the evening, my family had already arrived and were already seated at our table. We had two servers and they were super professional, very attentive to all of our needs.
I started with a nice Funky Buddha Beer, locally brewed, so smooth
Someone else ordered this delicious Martini
Let’s get to the food! I had been told by a previous diner that the portions were small but we didn’t find it to be the case, I think the portions were just right.
Lump Crab and shrimp stuffed mushrooms
Filet Mignon with
Cedar plank roasted salmon
Grilled Sea Scallops with goat cheese risotto and green asparagus
Wood grilled Filet Mignon with sweet & mash potatoes
Peanut Butter Torte – Peanut butter is my favorite
Belgian Chocolate S’more ( the desserts were amazing) they are so small that you can practically try each one of their flavors.
All of our dishes were delicious, the staff was awesome, the atmosphere was wonderful and the price was unexpectedly less than expected.
