Dessert at Seasons 52

I was in the mood for a dessert in a nice location the other night. Seasons 52 struck me as being just the right place. They have multiple locations around town; I've only been to the one at Perimeter Mall. I have had dinner there before (excellent) but this report concentrates on dessert.

All the desserts are served in small portions (tapas-style dessert?) in parfait glasses. I had the chocolate and pecan desserts. They aren't overly sweet, which is important to me---too much sugar hides the other flavors. The pecan pie parfait was particularly enjoyable because of the range of textures as well as flavors, this even though I was in a chocolate mood. The capuccino was the perfect complement. I sat in the bar area and, I must admit, read my email, but it was a very enjoyable experience. And each parfait is only $2.50.

Aurora CO: Cedar Creek Pub

Cedar Creek Pub is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. My CU Denver friends and I adjourned there for good food and discussion. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was excellent: crispy, fluffy beer batter coating tender, moist cod. The fries were great, too.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Kalona IA: JW's Foods

We took a drive on a beautiful day to Kalona and had a very enjoyable lunch at JW's Foods. Kalona is a small town about 20 miles south of I-80 year Iowa City. The area seems to be a mix of Amish and Mennonite. JW's foods is a grocery store with a restaurant inside; it is located at the edge of town near the grain silos. The service was very helpful and friendly. The food was pretty darn good. I couldn't resist the tenderloin sandwich and I wasn't disappointed. As is traditional for these sandwiches, the tenderloin hangs out well over the bun. The pork tender was tasty and tender with excellent breading. Debbie had a beautiful turkey sandwich handmade from the deli. She reports that everything, from the bread to the meat, was outstanding.
