Dinner Club: Seasons 52

TGIF, team! A few weekends ago, my sister, Jennifer, and I had a great dinner at Seasons 52 and I wanted to share in case you’re looking for a delicious place to dine this weekend. We went to the Seasons 52 location in North Bethesda—though we drove to the restaurant, it is right near the which is White Flint Metro stop. There’s also a location in Tyson’s Corner Mall, which is very easy to access via Metro, too—and, coincidentally, close to my office, so I hope to go for happy hour soon.

For those of you unfamiliar with Seasons 52, it’s a casual grill and wine bar where you won’t feel uncomfortably stuffed after your visit because every dish is a dish you can feel good about. The menu changes with the season to feature ingredients at their peak, from whole produce that arrives and is kept 100% fresh, never frozen, to carefully sourced meats and pristine seafood. When my sister and I were making our dinner selections, we noticed almost no dish is over 500 calories (except the mac & cheese we ordered—but hey, you have to live a little, right?!). In addition, they have 52 wines by the glass available at the bar—so, needless to say, there’s a glass for everyone.

If you don’t live in the DC area and want to try Seasons 52, you’re in luck—there are locations all around the country and you can find one close to you here!

When Jennifer and I arrived to Seasons 52, we were given such a warm welcome and seated at a wonderful table right near a big window.

To start the evening off, we decided to both order off Season 52’s Rosé All Day wine menu. (If you know me at all, you know this is a menu I can get behind!) I opted for the Vanderpump Dry Rosé, which was delicious! It’s a classic Provence rosé with a touch of strawberry, tangerine and peach in a dry style and paired really well with Season’s 52 grilled shrimp and avocado cocktail we ordered. Jennifer tried out the Rosé Lemonade cocktail, which was made with Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose Vodka combined with Royal Post Rosé and lemon. She let me have a sip, and y’all, that cocktail is good.

Since so many of the dishes on Season 52’s menu looked delicious, Jennifer and I decided to share everything we ordered. On the recommendation of our amazing server, we started with their roasted corn, aged cheddar, and spiced bacon flatbread from the summer menu. It was so good! We then split their grilled shrimp and avocado cocktail, which was by far my favorite dish since the avocado dip was so good (we ended up ordering a second one we loved it so much!), grilled chicken ravioli, lobster bisque, and mac & cheese.

Once we were done with our mains, we asked our waitress if we could see the dessert menu just to take a look, and she came back with Seasons 52’s famous mini indulgences dessert tray! It featured seven mini versions of their most popular desserts, including the blueberry cheesecake (my favorite! it’s on their summer seasonal menu), key lime pie, pecan pie, raspberry chocolate chip cannoli, Belgian chocolate s’more, peanut butter torte, and mocha macchiato. If you head to Seasons 52, definitely save room for this dessert—I promise you won’t regret it!
