Seasons 52: seafood, steaks, and elegant dining in Troy, MI

*Disclosure: I received a complimentary dinner at Seasons 52 in exchange for this blog post. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I was very excited to see that a Seasons 52 had opened near me in Troy, MI recently—although it's a chain, it's the first Michigan location for it, and I was eager to try it out. I was able to stop by yesterday for dinner, and everything was delicious.

I was very impressed by their menus—they handed us two, one was the regular menu plus drinks and another had the entrees separated by Lactose/Dairy Sensitive, and also a vegan menu. For someone like me who sometimes needs to avoid dairy, this was excellent to see.

The interior of Seasons 52 is very upscale. We were seated in a comfortable booth near the kitchen, and it was interesting to be able to see the chefs cooking. There are a few different rooms in the restaurant, as well as a bar area, where happy hour takes place.

We started off with a goat cheese and mushroom flatbread as an appetizer. I'm a huge mushroom fan and the flatbread came topped with cremini, shiitake, portabello, and oyster mushrooms. The goat cheese was also very fresh, according to the friend I dined with, and the flatbread was very crispy.

I forgot to mention that my friend and I also ordered drinks: she had a glass of prosecco, and I had the Cucumber Basil Smash. I love sweet drinks and this was very sweet—it's made with Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka, white cranberry juice, cucumber, basil, and lime. I highly recommend it if you like sweet drinks.

For our entrees, I ordered the filet, medium-rare, and my friend ordered the sea scallops. She said that the scallops were cooked perfectly. My filet was good: I liked the wine sauce that came with it. The filet comes with mashed potatoes and caulilini, and I also ordered the Brussels sprouts as a side, which were FANTASTIC ... they're made with Applewood bacon and a 15-year aged balsamic vinegar. My friend ordered mac 'n cheese for her side and said that it was very good, as well.

For dessert, Seasons 52 only offers mini desserts, priced at $3 each, which was a nice ending to the meal. We tried the pecan pie as well as the tiramisu. Your server will actually bring you a tray with all of the options on them, and then you can pluck whatever dessert you'd like right off the tray, to eat.

Overall, both myself and my friend were impressed by our experience at Seasons 52. They do a happy hour from 3-7pm, Mondays through Fridays, as well, so I will definitely be back for that; it takes place in the bar, but there are also regular tables (you don't have to sit directly at the bar for the deals).

Seasons 52 is located at 1000 W. Big Beaver Rd., Troy, MI 48084, and can be reached at (248) 362-9752 or on its website. Click here to view menus.
