Seasons 52 to Open in 2010 at South Coast Plaza

I know what you're thinking: What the heck is Seasons 52? And who are they to go against South Coast Plaza heavy weights like Hamamori, Marche Moderne and Charlie Palmer?

Well, the answer is that it is a fine-dining chain from east of the Mississippi, with eleven locations in Florida and neighboring states. This SCP venture will be the first west of the mighty river.

But that's not what intrigues me about them: It is the fact that they tout every single item they serve as being under 475 Calories. That'll be quite a feat to witness, especially looking at their menu and accompanying wine list that reads like a phone book roll call.

Here's a sample:
