Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that provides guests with a healthy dining experience. Their constantly changing menu is inspired by the seasons and the fresh appeal of the farmer’s market—52 weeks a year. They also draw inspiration from different countries around the world and many of their dishes represent the best in fusion cooking.

The chefs start with the freshest ingredients and use natural cooking techniques such as a wood-burning grill to enhance flavors instead of relying on high-calorie additives. This allows them to keep each delicious item under just 475 calories. With a full menu of appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts, Seasons 52 allows guests to mix and match a culinary experience that is big on flavor, not calories! They also offer dining options for guests that are vegetarian, vegan, gluten sensitive, or dairy/lactose sensitive.

Seasons 52 has two locations in San Diego at Westfield UTC and the Seaport District downtown.

Restaurant of the Moment: Trust

3752 Park Blvd #105C

San Diego, CA 92103

www.TrustRestaurantSD.com

IMG_4486

One of the hottest new restaurants in San Diego is Trust, an urban rustic restaurant in the Hillcrest neighborhood! Using locally sourced ingredients to put a spin on your favorite dishes and drinks, it’s no wonder Trust has become one of the most talked-about dining concepts in the city.

Trust serves dinner daily, but it’s their weekend brunch that’s really a crowd-pleaser. Some of our favorite items that we tasted on the brunch menu include the Lemon Meringue French Toast and the Pancakes With Fried Chicken. The French Toast was decadent and delightfully lemony. The pancakes were the perfect savory accompaniment to the juicy yet crispy fried chicken. And of course, how can you have brunch without a round of mimosas? Try the Trust Mimosa made with aperol or one of their fruity flavors like blood orange!

The restaurant itself is beautiful and trendy – the interior is decidedly industrial chic. Yet it still feels welcoming! Trust is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy Sunday brunch with friends or savor a romantic dinner with a loved one.
