Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that offers a seasonally changing menu inspired by the appeal of a local farmer’s market. Seasons 52 sources ingredients at their peak of freshness and uses rustic cooking techniques, like brick-oven roasting and open-fire grilling over oak and mesquite wood to bring out the natural flavors of food. The menu is paired with an ever-changing international collection of more than 100 wines, with 52 available by the glass, along with exceptional signature handcrafted cocktails. <br /><br />Open for lunch and dinner daily, with extended hours on the weekend. <br /><br />If you are searching for a place to host your next group function, Seasons 52 is the perfect setting for your private or semi-private event. We also feature a Chef’s table for smaller groups or more intimate settings. For more information, visit our website at www.Seasons52.com.<br /><br />

"At a time when Seasons 52 really needs to stand strong, among the newcomers up the block, I'm worried they are faltering. First we were told they were out of all beers except five normal brands. Then, they were out of a wine we wanted to order. Then, another item we wanted. I've always loved this restaurant and found everything on the menu to be amazing....this time, not so much. The scallops are still an incredible meal, but I probably wouldn't order the lamb chops again. Or the crabmeat wedge. Seasons.....we love you. Please work out your recent kinks so we continue to have you as a great restaurant at North Bethesda Marketplace!"

"What an awesome find for our date night. Especially because it was so accessible on Valentine's Day. People really should think of this restaurant as a "go to" for wonderful food. I'm not sure why wasn't more crowded. They not only had a Valentine's Day menu but also a regular menu. The homemade pasta is unbelievable. The fresh burratta (mozzarella) and the portobello mushroom appetizers are a must order. Capellini Fresca was a delightful combination of a lighter pasta & shrimp option. The Pesto wasn't overdone. Hubby loved the heartier risotto. Wine list Includes plenty of by the glass options."

The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate. <br /><br />Sushi Ko also offers an Omakase dining experience available in the Sushi Bar only and by telephone reservation. The maximum amount of people per time slot is 4. This new policy will take effect Mon. Feb. 9. The time slots we have available are:<br /><br />5:30pm - Omakase Nigiri<br />6:30pm - Chef's Tasting Menu<br />8:00pm - Omakase Nigiri<br />9:00pm - Chef's Tasting Menu<br /><br />

"I had not been to SushiKo since they began a new menu last oct. In fact I had forgotten about this restaurant. That won't hapoen again! What a great variety of new unique and adventurous dishes! Our waiter Brian was well versed in all the nuances and made excellent suggestions. He truly is a stand out and is a plus for this restaurant. We would not have ordered the chefs menu or other items without his detailed, clear explanation of the dishes. I was not with a sushi fan -- but by the time we left, he was converted! The persimmon salad is a must. Tuna five ways is amazing. Next time im trying the fois gras appetizer-- yes, at a sushi restaurant!"
