Seasons 52 Announces Plans to Open New Restaurant in Memphis

Seasons 52, the highly acclaimed fresh grill and wine bar, today announced its plans to open a new location in Memphis, Tennessee in autumn 2013.  The Memphis restaurant will be located at Crescent Center on the corner of Poplar Avenue and Ridgeway Road.  This new restaurant will create approximately 100 new jobs in the area.

“We are excited to bring Seasons 52 to Memphis. It is an ideal setting for our guests – people who celebrate living well while enjoying upscale dining, shopping and entertainment,” said Stephen Judge, president of Seasons 52.

Known for its seasonally inspired menu and fresh approach to dining, Seasons 52 offers notable menu selections such as: Steak and Cremini Mushroom Flatbread, Cedar Plank Salmon, Caramelized Sea Scallops and Maui Tuna Crunch Salad.  Menus change four times a year with weekly specials that truly capture the flavors of each season.  Nothing on the menu is more than 475 calories, from the signature flatbreads and appetizers, to all entrees and the popular Mini Indulgence desserts.

In addition, Seasons 52’s Master Sommelier George Miliotes has developed a diverse international wine list featuring over 100 wines with more than 52 selections offered by the glass, highlighted by several organic wines as well as Miliotes’ ever-changing selection of “Drink Them Before They’re Famous” recommendations.

“Highwoods is pleased to welcome Seasons 52 to Memphis and our Crescent Center property.  This innovative restaurant will bring a unique, forward-thinking lifestyle restaurant to our community while providing guests with a dining experience that celebrates living well,” said Steve Guinn, vice president of Highwoods Properties.

Seasons 52 in Memphis will feature a warm, welcoming ambiance with rich mahogany accents, a custom-built wine cellar, a casually sophisticated dining room and piano bar featuring live music nightly.  Additionally, the restaurant will offer two private dining rooms and an exclusive Chef’s Table. Complimentary valet parking will also be available to all Seasons 52 guests.

Seasons 52, which debuted in 2003, is a fresh grill and wine bar that provides guests with a fresh dining experience, enabling them to celebrate living well.  The menu is orchestrated by award-winning Chef Clifford Pleau, and is inspired by the seasons and the fresh appeal of the farmers’ market – 52 weeks a year. The award-winning wine list created and developed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes – one of over 180 Master Sommeliers worldwide – is consistently praised for its diverse international selection of 100 wines, including more than 52 offered by the glass.  Seasons 52 is recognized as a forward-thinking restaurant concept that is “right for the times” and always offers guests something new to discover.

Seasons 52 currently operates 22 locations in 13 states across the country and will open additional restaurants in Oak Brook (Oakbrook Center), Ill., in spring 2012; Santa Monica (Ocean and Broadway), and Los Angeles (Century City), Calif., in autumn 2012; and Houston (Westheimer), Texas, Sacramento (Arden Fair Mall), Calif. as well as Edison (Menlo Park Mall), N.J. in spring 2013.  For more information, please visit
