Popular neighborhood New American restaurant, Seasons, today announced an extraordinary addition to their fall dinner menu: the succulent shrimp empanada.

Launched by Seasons owner Joseph Tesone, Empanada Joeâ€™s offers a healthier fast(er) food option that does not skimp on wholesomeness, freshness or flavor. Thanks to the overwhelming response to these nourishing, 100% baked empanadas, Somers residents will now get a taste of Contreraâ€™s delectable creations with the addition of this specially- created flavor to the Seasons menu.
Upholding Seasonâ€™s commitment to fresh, quality ingredients, Contrera crafted a fresh new succulent shrimp empanada on the menu. Mouthwateringly delicious and bursting with flavor, the new empanada offering is sure to be an instant hit with the Seasons guests who will also appreciate the healthy qualities they offer.
â€œThe feedback for Hugoâ€™s empanadas at Empanada Joeâ€™s has been so overwhelmingly positive that we felt compelled to share them with our loyal Seasonsâ€™ guests,â€ says Seasons Owner Joseph Tesone. â€œWe are thrilled about the positive response weâ€™ve gotten for Empanada Joeâ€™s and look forward to watching our Somers friends and family enjoying Hugoâ€™s creation right in their backyard.â€
