Not many reviews this week, but some brave souls soldiered on nonetheless. Tom Sietsema heads to low-calorie chain Seasons 52 in Washington DC, which recently opened two locations in the area and "plans to add to its collection of 18 restaurants with six more this year and next." And in a review of Chicago's Cafe Iberico, Pat Bruno addresses the rumor that he's a small plates hater: "To a certain degree, that’s true. Why would I be happy with an overpriced, thimble-sized portion of food? If it’s trendy to be ripped off, count me out." Here are the end-of-week reviews:

Washington, DC:
Washington Post/Tom Sietsema: Seasons 52, 1.5 stars

Chicago Sun-Times/Pat Bruno: Quay, 3 stars
Chicago Sun-Times/Pat Bruno: Cafe Iberico
Chicago Reader/Mike Sula: To the Tooth
Chicago Reader/Sam Worley: Ethyl's Beer & Wine Dive
