What You'll Get
For every season, there is an assortment of traditionally enjoyed dishes and a variety of appropriate mittens. Today's Groupon provides the former through a delicious array of meals to fit all of nature's whims. For $40, you get $85 worth of elegant fare at Seasons Restaurant inside the Four Seasons Hotel in the Gold Coast. At Seasons, an exquisitely upscale atmosphere plays host to savory recipes that are presented with an eye for edible aesthetics.
Seasons Restaurant unites the influences of French and American cooking in a single steel-cage kitchen. Between an accommodating wait staff and fetching views of Michigan Avenue, the inviting eatery has earned the honor of Best Ambiance and Best Service from reviewers on OpenTable. Diners are treated to the pristine comforts of marbled dining rooms with lushly cushioned chairs, overhanging chandeliers, ornamental rugs, and tremendously tall wooden doors that broadcast a message of stoic security and a gracious acceptance of tall patrons. The charming bar pours vintage libations for casual sippers and a relaxed clientele, providing a welcoming spot to settle back and unwind.
When hunger pangs resonate, Seasons Restaurant offers refined five-course tasting menus ($95), celebrated Sunday brunches, and a rotating menu filled with inspired cuisine. Recent menu items include the appetizing likes of caramelized Nantucket Bay scallops ($17), duck confit filled fettuccini in a foie gras sauce ($15), and Moroccan carrot salad with smoked paprika and cumin churros under a drizzling of cilantro and mint-yogurt vinaigrette ($12). Entrees entreat the taste buds to landlocked feastings of braised pork shank accompanied by sweet-potato gnocchi and a maple jus ($24) and the maritime leanings of black sea bass with a sunchoke, tangerine, and tarragon salad ($29).
This Groupon excludes Chef's Table seating.
Seasons Restaurant received a 2009 award of distinction from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and was a Diners' Choice Winner for Best Ambiance, Best Overall, and Best Service on OpenTable. Metromix Chicago says:
- Just off the lobby on the seventh floor, Seasons Restaurant is an extravagant affair - with mahogany colorings, brilliantly flowered carpet, brocade armchairs and fresh flowers. Guests overlook the bustle of Michigan Avenue and Delaware Place as they dine in Old World splendor. Seasons features innovative contemporary American cuisine in an elegant yet comfortable setting.
- One of the best dining experiences we have had in Chicago. We attended dinner for restaurant week, which was phenomenal. The best part was the $15 wine pairing! Great wines, generous pours. A great dinner! – OpenTable user who dined on 2/27/10
- The staff was friendly, but unobtrusive. They really made us feel at home, and we welcomed their expert opinions on the menu. – adillon3591, Metromix
