I am going to be at a conference at the Grande Lakes, and eating there most of the time. For a break from Primo and Norman's, eight of us are considering either Seasons 52 or Oceanaire. Does anyone want to weigh in on a preference or suggest an alternative? Thanks.
Seasons 52 is based on a healthy meal. Salads, fish, shrimp, healthy apps, ravioli with goat cheese. and cute little shot glass desserts. It's great for those who don't want a heavy meal or are counting calories.
Oceanaire is seafood-centric but not as health conscious. I've had oysters and apps there that were good.
Both are chains if you want to hit up a non chain you can find a couple of places in the area that can seat 8.
Bosphorous - Turkish
Peperoncino - Italian
Cafe Tu Tu Tango - fun take on tapas
We stayed for a week at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes and besides Norman's at the Ritz-Carlton, we enjoyed Millers Ale House which is down the street.
Food and drink were really good and a fun place.
Cuban resto is in the same center..Padrino's..
There was a French bistro that was pretty good in the JW.
Pool bar dining after riding the expansive pool river for hours has good sandwiches and fries.
