Seasons 52 introduces Memphis to a finely honed concept that offers opulent decor, an open kitchen along one wall, and a circular bar with a piano player in the middle. And like the wine list, the restaurant’s menu, brings surprises sometimes missed by corporate chains, such as luscious desserts layered into shot glasses and Meyer lemons, grilled as a garnish for seafood plates.

Located in Crescent Center at the intersection of Poplar and Ridgeway, Seasons 52 is known nationally for its fresh, seasonal restaurant dishes. The brand concept is to deliver a sophisticated atmosphere, seasonal menu, and offer fresh ingredients to deliver menu items that are naturally lighter. The restaurant's core menu changes four times a year with every season, and all the features on the right hand panel of the menu change every week, 52 times a year. Chef Cassie Presley favors Branzino, a silver-skinned Mediterranean sea bass on the winter menu. “We roast it whole and serve it with thyme oil to add richness to the flavor,” said Presley, who is not related to our city’s legendary son. “We are very proud of the dish.”

In addition to the elegant upscale restaurant, they feature The Chef’s Table, which is a private dining room for groups and has a personalized menu.  It would be a fun way to celebrate a big occasional with friends or co-workers.  And once the warm weather gets here, there’s a great patio area for dining and relaxing.  If you’d never tried Seasons 52 before, grab someone special and enjoy a memorable meal here.
