It's a chain concept with no deep fryers, a heavy reliance on seasonal and sustainable ingredients, a commitment to serving no dishes over 475 calories, with any number of subtle strategies for giving diners lots of flavor and drama without a lot of fat and calories. Darden Restaurants — Olive Garden, Red Lobster, LongHorn Steakhouse, Capital Grille and more — opened Tampa's Seasons 52 in WestShore Plaza near the beginning of 2010, and it's been packed since. It's a strategy of "give the people what they want" — buzz, drama, a stylish dining room and pretty, contemporary food — with a subtle commitment to giving us what we need: Veggies center stage, tiny low-cal desserts and a careful use of fats and sauces.
