Father and son duo, Bill (left) and Benjamin McNabb. They opened Seasons St. Louis with Bill’s wife (Benjamin’s mother) in March. As the restaurant name suggests, they will be changing the menu on September 22 for the fall season, but in the meantime, I photographed a four course meal with some of their favorite ingredients.
First was an Heirloom Tomato Terrine. The beginnings of the dish: laying down the bed of mache to gently cradle the terrine.
The Heirloom Tomato Terrine is a sliced loaf of heirloom tomatoes, paper-thin prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, house-made spinach pasta, baby mache, basil oil and balsamic gastrique.

Benjamin’s co-chef in the kitchen is Chef Josh Striplin. The two worked together at The Fox Theatre, in its kitchen, before making the jump to Seasons St. Louis.
Josh and Benjamin make the pastas fresh, in-house. Here they are preparing the third course of Shrimp scampi.
Our plated third course, shrimp scampi. The scampi is a combination of Seasons’ house-made linguine, a chiffonade of fresh basil, toasted pine nuts, grated parmesan, white wine garlic sauce, house-made pesto and balsamic gastrique.
Co-chef Benjamin McNabb relaxing, if only for a moment, on the “patio” of Seasons St. Louis in Chesterfield.
And finally, our fourth course. A beautifully fresh peach cobbler. The cobbler is made from succulent local peaches, streusel topping and served with house-made vanilla bean ice cream.
Co-Chef Josh Striplin of Seasons St. Louis allowed himself to be “stolen” away from the Fox in order to come work with friend/co-worker Benjamin and his family.

Seasons St. Louis in Chesterfield, is in a strip mall, but doesn’t let that stop the owners from providing an outdoor dining experience. The fall menu starts on September 22. A few dishes to look forward to are the: house-made charcuterie, duck confit ravioli and a smoked pasta with forest mushrooms.
