Fresh Grill - Orlando Dining:
Orlando has been the fortunate testing grounds for the newest Darden Restaurant creation, Season's 52. The first of this chain was opened on Sand Lake Road in 2003 right on Orlando's popular Restaurant Row. The immediate popularity of Season's prompted Darden to open a second restaurant in Altamonte Springs on S.R. 436. An intriguing concept; fresh foods, healthy, innovative recipe creations and a superb wine list - and that's just the dining part of Season's.
The trendy lounge with it's subtle lighting, nightly live music and delectable appetizers has morphed the Season's brand into one of the area's "hot spots". A fusion of food, wine and atmosphere...all winning top honors!
