Former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton, was recently spotted at the cozy New York eatery, Seäsonal. Chelsea dined with her fiancé, Marc Mezvinsky, and another couple sticking to her vegetarian diet with a spring salad and white asparagus. The political power couple is not the only set of famous faces that have graced Seäsonal-renowned orchestral conductor and pianist James Levine, Austrian President Heinz Fischer, fashion favorite Richie Rich, and actress Diane Kruger have all dined at this contemporary Austrian/German Restaurant & Weinbar.Located in the heart of midtown Manhattan, Seäsonal, the culinary brainchild of award-winning chefs Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban, offers New Yorkers a fresh, new perspective on "traditional" Austrian & German cuisine, challenging the long-standing expectations that many believe are true.
