I recently attended a special preview of Seasons 52, now open in Bridgewater, on Commons Way, just in time for spring. The fresh grill concept with seasonal appeal is perfectly presented with the restaurant’s delicious offerings in a casually elegant atmosphere.
Seasons 52 has a spacious bar and generous dining areas all beautifully appointed. The open kitchen adds to the airy, contemporary ambiance. Whether you are going solo or gathering your group, they are very accommodating.
While you may recognize that Seasons 52 has other locations, you can be sure that the team at Bridgewater makes this truly an outstanding spot in the Central Jersey area. From the warm welcome at the door to the attentive service and stunning presentation of their delicious menu items, Seasons 52 in Bridgewater is sure to please guests.
I started my culinary journey with one of their light and crispy flatbreads, the lobster and fresh mozzarella, perfect for sharing. The restaurant’s warm spinach salad had just the right mix of fresh spinach and vegetables complimented by crisp applewood bacon and finished with brown butter-sherry vinaigrette. Seafood lovers will delight at selections like their Maryland-style lump crab cake appetizer and entrée items like their Asian-glazed Chilean sea bass. I also enjoyed trying the oak grilled filet mignon, which was tender and perfectly grilled. Entrees are served with generous sides and beautifully presented.
Alternative menus are available that include gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian selections making dining a pleasure for people with specific dietary needs.
Seasons 52 has a lovely selection of mini-indulgences to top off your meal. With a variety of favorites like peanut chocolate torte and key lime meringue, they are just the right size for a sweet treat.
I especially like that Seasons 52 has a great bar space with happy hour specials that include small plates and delightful fruit infused cocktails. And its “Flights and Flats” special allows guest to sample fine wines while enjoying delightful flatbreads. The master sommelier has selected 52 wines by the glass, allowing for perfect pairings with your food selections.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Season 52’s executive chef, Andrew Hurd, who told us that he takes special pride in each and every dish. He pointed out that while their menu changes with each season, guests can also look forward to highlighted specials.
The restaurant is convenient to Routes 22, 287, 202 and 206 and is open for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and weekend brunch.
