Eat In Sync with the Seasons at Seasons Bistro
Seasons Bistro, on the first floor of 111 Somerset, is a cosy restaurant serving simple yet unique food of the Americas. From the seafood specialties of New England to Louisiana’s famous gumbo all the way to exotic Mexican-spiced dishes of the Southwest. Seasons Bistro works on a seasonal menu concept as they believe it not only tastes better but also provides better value for diners. Come every season, Canadian trained Executive Chef Benjamin Fong, formerly at PS Cafe, will recreate different dishes of the colourful cuisine of the Americans using the freshest produce.
Starters at Seasons Bistro are quite refreshing interpretations of classics as well as new creations. The Seasons Bistro Pan Seared Foie Gras ($16) is a refreshing savoury-sweet delight. The rich foie gras sweeten with the delish dark chocolate ganache and heavenly in-house bacon jam and caramalized bananas. The Manhattan Clam Chowder ($8) is a nice change from the traditional creamy chowder. Instead of a traditional cream-based clam chowder, the chowder here gets a boost of flavour from a tasty clear tomato base soup brimming with ingredients. The USA food truck inspired Seared Yellowfin Tuna Taco ($14) is a quirky snack of avocado mayonnaise, pickled onions, cotija cheese and cilantro jalapeno watercress salad on tortilla shell. Fries lovers will enjoy the Seasons Poutine ($10), a Canadian comfort food of fries and cheese curds. Swathed in homemade beef gravy, these flavourful fries are indeed comforting.
Another must-try dish is the Buttermilk Fried Chicken ($22), nicely deboned chicken pieces marinated in buttermilk for this addictive heavenly treat. Even non-fish lovers won’t mind the not-at-all fishy Seared Albacore Tuna ($26). This substantial slab of juicy tuna is slightly seared to a great texture balanced with chipotle mojo and salsa verde. For a different carb fix, go for the Louisiana hearty tomato stew, Surf & Turf Gumbo ($27 – see main photo above). Tuck into shrimp, chicken, sausage, okra tomato stew with dirty rice, pickled onion, chow chow relish and french bean salad. A nice vegetarian option is the Chargrilled Portobello Stack ($20), an intriguing combination of eggplant, salsa verde, tomatoes, herbed potatoes, goats cheese and spinach with maple balsamic reduction and crispy artichokes.
Finish your meal on a sweet note with the dazzling selection of desserts. Go for the decadent richness of Season’s Red Velvet Cheesecake ($10) or opt for a comforting moist Season’s Carrot Cake ($12). For a tangy treat, the lemony slightly alchololic zest of the Mojito Tart ($12) will not disappoint. This toasted coconut tart with mint lime curd and rum cream is excellent to pair with the Wicked Summer Mojito ($18) cocktail. Other cocktails in the menu include Seattle Breeze ($18) of White Wine, Brandy, orange juice and Tijuana Cafe ($18) of Kahlua, block coffee, sugar, whipped cream. You can also share cocktail pitchers ($45, 1.5litres) with your friends. There are also american craft beers from independent breweries and boutique wines to imbibe or just have a good old fashion refreshing Gosling Ginger Beer ($6).
Seasons Bistro is also serving up unfussy brunch from 10am to 4pm on weekends with quite affordable items while you enjoy a fairly peaceful weekend with a view of Somerset. Be wowed by the buttermilk pancake stack ($12) done Canadian way, with maple, homemade jam and fresh strawberries. If you have a big appetite, Canadian favourite Lumberjack ($18) offers a great variety with eggs anyway, smoked bacon, sausage, home fries and pancake. Fancy something more tempting than French Toast, Feedom Toast ($15) is tempting egg dipped bread topped with smoked bacon, brie and maple. Add a bubbly zest to your brunch with the 2+1 promotion offer on delicious Moscato wine.
There will also be two specials daily across starter, main course and dessert. An extensive deli counter is available for takeaway with gourmet sandwiches, cold cuts and cheese platter. Promotions include half price ‘Quick Meeting?’ weekday coffee from 2:30pm to 5pm which is excellent for a coffee break or even a business discussion. 1-for-1 Happy Hour starts from 5pm to 7pm daily for red wine, white wine and draft beers. Seasons Bistro will have their next menu change for Fall in October, so do stop by.
