10-30-2014 Yelp Wining and Dining event at Seasons 52

I (Cara) was lucky to attend an amazing Yelp Elite only event (no +1 - sorry, Eric).  It was a wine and food pairing at Seasons 52 restaurant at Keystone at the Crossing in north Indianapolis.  They focus on cooking seasonally-inspired, healthy food, and nothing on the menu is over 475 calories.  They grill over a real wood fire, and they don't even have a fryer in the kitchen.  Plus, they have gluten free and vegetarian/vegan menus if you need one.

I think all of us there expected a few small tasting plates to go with our wine samples.  Boy were we wrong!  Seasons 52 really rolled out the red carpet and treated us like royalty!  We had appetizers and a full five course meal, with a different wine for each course.  We were told that each course was actually a smaller portion than normal, which was hard to believe.  Plus, we got goodies like a wine glass, reusable bag, $5 gift card, and a nice wine cork.  We were all blown away!  Five stars!  I would definitely go there again!

This was our menu that night.  Of course, I got vegetarian items in place of the meat.

Baby Spinach & Carmelized Pear Salad (yummy - the pears were delicious!) - supposedly
this was the only full-size item we got that night.  (I missed getting a picture of the two
flatbreads that preceded the salad.)

My second course of roasted butternut squash, acorn squash and apples - delicious!

My third course of  Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli - AMAZING!

My fourth course, a vegetarian sampler of seasonal veggies (squash, broccoli, brussels sprouts, red peppers, mushroom), cedar-
roasted tofu, soft taco, and quinoa citrus salad!  Thankfully they brought boxes for us at this point, because I had to take most
of this incredible food home.  Everything was great, but the quinoa citrus salad was probably my favorite in this course - I
loved the crunch of the jicama in it.

Our fifth course - a sampler of "mini indulgences" like key lime pie, pumpkin pie, blueberry
something, s'mores, and a macchiato treat that I tried and loved.
