Top Five Musts at Seasons 52 This Fall

I received complimentary food and drink in exchange for this blog post. All opinions are mine.

"Seasonally inspired cooking" is Seasons 52's motto and they live up to it. Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that offers a seasonal menu inspired by the appeal of a local farmer’s market and what’s good now. Using ingredients at their peak and rustic cooking techniques, like brick-oven roasting and open-fire grilling over oak and mesquite, Seasons 52 brings out the natural flavors of food.

I was fortunate enough to enjoy an evening at Seasons 52 recently to experience the new Fall menu. After a long day a work, I was definitely looking forward to a "hump day" dinner to get me through the rest of the week.

My fellow blogger friend and educator colleague Lora from came along with other local food bloggers to partake in the goodness Seasosn52 has to offer. 

The evening started with cocktails and appetizers.

Pumpkin Pisco Sour with organic pumpkin vodka, Pisco, and aromatic bitters
Perfect Storm cocktail with Absolute Pears, St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, fresh Bosc pears and thyme
Trio of roasted mushrooms flatbread with garlic confit, spinach, green onion, goat cheese, and truffle oil
Lobster and fresh mozzarella flatbread with roasted sweet potatoes, slivered scallions, and lobster sour cream
For dinner, we were given free range of the menu so for appetizers we had:

Shrimp scampi skillet with roasted plum tomatoes Parsley garlic bread bruschetta

Blistered shishito peppers with the roasted corn, feta cheese, lemon aioli, and sumac

For our main dishes, Lora had the Old Grilled New York Strip with parmesan and herb marinated toybox tomatoes bravas style potatoes and roasted tomato chimichurri

I had roasted Manchester Farms Quail with mushroom risotto stuffing leaf spinach bacon, Balsamic demi-glacé with a side of cartelized sea scallops

Of course Seasons 52 did not let us leave without dessert. Sweet and tart, creamy and crunchy, white and dark chocolate, blueberries and lemons, pecans and pie. Every dessert sensation in one presentation!

Top five musts at Seasons 52 this Fall:

1) The outdoor patio seating goes well with our San Diego weather. The fire pit and lounge area is a great spot to unwind. I have to say, it's also a very romantic spot of the restaurant.

2) The cocktails highlight the flavors of the seasons. The drinks I had featured lemon, pumpkin, and pear flavors. The fresh and crisp drinks were perfect!

3) The flatbreads are a great low-calorie option on the menu. Low-calorie does not mean low flavor at all! The flatbreads we tried were very flavorful and topped plentifully!

4) The menu features a "Chef's Suggestions" section. These are menu items that really highlight the in-season ingredients, as well as the chef's talents and inspirations! I love the quail and scallop dishes from the chef's selection portion of the menu.

5) You must have the dessert sampler! The video above had all the dessert samplers Season 52 has. You can choose one, two, or all (like we did)! They were all very delicious and offered a variety of flavors to satisfy any sweet tooth!

Thanks to Seasons 52 for having us! We had a wonderful evening! I look forward to a romantic dinner with hubby near the fire pit soon!
