Restaurant review: Western with a difference

Seasons Bistro serves wholesome American fare and its menu is designed to follow the seasons

Published on May 25, 2014 8:26 PM
 

Every month, you find a mid-priced Western restaurant or cafe opening to cater to those seeking something more comfortable than a food court but less expensive than a stuffy restaurant.

But most of them serve the same things: a few salads, one or two soups, some pasta dishes and main courses comprising a fish and a choice of meats. Their food may taste rather generic, too, as the salad often contains either lettuce or arugula, the soup would be a cream of a vegetable, the pastas would come with a tomato sauce and so on.

In that respect, Seasons Bistro, which opened at Triple One Somerset about two weeks ago, is not that different. But it manages to distinguish itself nonetheless.

Unlike other eateries which classify themselves as generally "Western", Seasons focuses on American fare. And, like its name suggests, its menu is designed to follow the seasons of the Northern Hemisphere.
