    New Autumn Lunch & Dinner at Seasons 52




    This fall, Seasons 52 will offer a new menu for customers to get everyone into the mood for autumn. I spoke to the manager, Jessica Sprecher, who gave me a little preview of their new menu and information about its history and their chef.

    The new menu is inspired by “What’s Good Now for Autumn” and is woven throughout with Butternut Squash, Caramelized Brussel Sprouts, Mushrooms, and Truffles. With the fresh appeal of a farmer’s market and authentic flavors, Seasons 52 uses rustic cooking techniques that create dishes that are well balanced and simply lighter.

    A history about the Jacksonville Seasons 52 is that they opened to the public in October of 2011 (this year will be 5 years since its opening). Since then, Seasons 52 has rebranded including adding various holiday menu options such as Brunch for Easter & Mother’s Day, Turkey Dinner on Thanksgiving, and Sunset at Seasons Happy Hour. Some fun facts: three of the four Front of the House Managers opened the restaurant but all in different positions; they were the 20th Seasons 52 opened for Darden Inc.

    Chef Jeff Buckner, Executive Chef Partner, has been a Chef for 12 years. Although he started out as a bartender, he realized how much he actu...   [Read More]

    5 Points' Americana Resturaunt with a Southern Twist




    The Riverside, 5 Points area is an area full of creativity. There are a lot of places to go to enjoy yourself and some places where you can have delicious food. We take a look at a restaurant that has been a popular spot since 2012. That restaurant is Black Sheep. From its rooftop dining and its delicious fresh produce, Black Sheep started with a similar restaurant named Chew, just like Orsay. I sat down with Allan DeVault to tell me a little bit about the restaurant’s history and how their food has blown people away. 

    Black Sheep spawned from Chew restaurant in downtown by Jonathan Insetta back in 2005. Unfortunately, it did not sustain popularity, so it was decided that they do a different concept that would serve fast casual during the day. Black Sheep was built in September of 2011, It’s doors opened October 1, 2012, and their rooftop opened in late November 2012. It’s upstairs where there is a different atmosphere where people can relax and enjoy their dinner and happy hour from the upstairs bar. The name Black Sheep was Insetta’s call saying “it invokes craft spirit, invokes Americana, sticking out of the crowd, more food, cocktail, and design perspective.”

Florida Double Cask Bourbon will be available at the distillery’s gift shop on Friday, September 9th from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and select retailers, bars and restaurants shortly after. 

    “Developed by the best craft distillers in the world, Florida Double Cask Bourbon is a celebration of the Sunshine State, its agriculture and unique maritime climate,” said Philip McDaniel, co-founder and CEO of St. Augustine Distillery. “Florida’s year-round heat and humidity ages our bourbon faster and with greater intensity than anywhere in the country.

    Riverside's Authentic French American Bistro




    In Riverside, located on Park Street, there is an authentic French American Bistro welcoming hungry customers. Orsay is an independent restaurant owned by Jonathan Insetta. The restaurant opened in August 2008. Following the crash of the stock market in September 2008, they managed to get through it and begin the journey. This restaurant has two dining rooms with personality. The front décor has white table cloths with elegant chandeliers and the back of the restaurant has an industrial, modern look.  This gives their guests dining options for the kind of dining experience they are looking for. The name Orsay is in reference to the Museum De Orsay, which is Jon’s mother’s favorite museum in France. 

    The man who prepares and makes the food a culinary delight is Executive Chef Michael McKinney. Years ago Michael helped open Insetta’s first restaurant, CHEW in downtown. When Jon graduated from Culinary School in Upstate NY, he came back and opened up his award winning restaurant, and McKinney was the sous chef there. He stayed at Orsay for the first 2 and half years but left to take a cooperate job. Luckily he returned and they are happy to have him back. Orsay experiences a low staff turnover, and their goal is t...   [Read More]
