Seasons 52 is recognized for its forward-thinking restaurant concept with proven consumer appeal. Known for its seasonally inspired menu and fresh approach to dining, the award-winning concept has capitalized on meeting the demands of today's culinary-savvy diners. Seasons 52 changes the menu four times a year with weekly fresh features to truly capture the flavors of the season. Each valued patron can be guaranteed the highest quality fresh food prepared without compromising great taste or a rich and complete dining experience. Nothing on the menu is more than 475 calories, from its signature flatbreads and appetizers, to all entrees and its Mini Indulgence desserts, which were originally created at Seasons 52 in Orlando in 2002. Seasons 52's promise of "a fresh dining experience that celebrates living well" has been consistently praised by restaurant critics across the country and people's choice awards alike.

The Seasons 52 at Roosevelt Field is estimated to seat 399 total diners, with 91 seats in the piano bar which features live entertainment nightly. Additionally, the restaurant will offer four private dining rooms and an exclusive chef's table. Seasons 52 provides the perfect ambiance for business lunches, romantic dinners, socializing with friends and any private group celebration or corporate event.  The new restaurant is expected to create approximately 100 new jobs on Long Island.

Leading Seasons 52 in its bold national expansion is company President Stephen Judge, who joined the organization in March 2007.  Mr. Judge is focused on securing premium real estate sites to fuel the concept's expansion. "Roosevelt Field is an ideal setting for Seasons 52," said Judge.  "The combination of upscale residential living, shopping, dining and entertainment provides a lifestyle environment compatible with the Seasons 52 concept.  We are all very excited to share Seasons 52 with the people of Long Island and the greater New York area."

Tom Schneider, executive vice president of development at Simon Property Group, (NYSE: SPG), the owner of Roosevelt Field said, "We are extremely excited to welcome Seasons 52 to Long Island.  The addition of Seasons 52 will provide shoppers with a wonderful new dining experience that complements the exciting retail environment at Roosevelt Field."  Schneider added that this will be the fifth Seasons 52 restaurant at a Simon center.
