Seasons on Seasons at Seasons 52

And just like that, 
in a blink of an eye, 
autumn is here. 

Kind of... 
The temps were in the upper 90s today, 
and it's only supposed to get hotter before the weather starts cooling off. 
But hey, 
I don't mind sipping on my Pumpkin Pisco Sour in a sundress!

Last week I was invited to sample the flavorful and bountiful flavors of the season at Seasons 52,
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. 
The menu is paired with an ever-changing collection of more than 100 wines, with 52 available by the glass, 
along with exceptional signature handcrafted cocktails. 
Some of my standout favorites were the Organic Sunshine Martini and the Perfect Storm cocktails. 
All the dishes I tried were bursting with flavor, 
but I really liked the Kabocha Squash Ravioli, the Lump Crab Cake,
and the Lobster & Fresh Mozzarella Flatbread
The menu is updated every week
so no guarantees that my recommendations will be available when you undoubtedly decide to stop by a location near you.
But don't worry, 
there’s always something new and flavorful to discover at Seasons 52.
You won't be dissapointed!
The restaurant features live music at the bar every night! Don't see that very often nowadays. 
Kabocha Squash Ravioli - brown butter, walnuts, crispy sage
Lump Crab Cake - Maryland-style, mustard sauce.
You guys, this was ALL MEAT. No funny business with these cakes. So good!
Oak-Grilled Rack of Lamb - caramelized root vegetables, Yukon mash, pomegranate sauce,
with an accompaniment of Caramelized Sea Scallops
Oh and the dessert part is fun, and I'm not even a sweets person!
They bring out everything at once and go through every option until you're frantically searching for your napkin to wipe the drool off your face.
I opted for the cannoli, which was so creamy I almost DIED.
The portions are all squeezed into a shot glass so although filling,
these little guys are not big enough to make you feel guilty about indulging.
