Seasons of Durango Rotisserie + Grill in Colorado features a rotating seasonal menu and serves high-end American-style cuisine.
This past fall, we traveled to Colorado for a multi-week camping and backpacking trip.
I wanted at least one of those meals to include trout. The best trout I've had has been out west.
My husband, ever on a mission to find me tasty seafood, suggested Seasons Rotisserie + Grill in Durango, Colorado. It was a happy find!
We planned our visit to Seasons the night before we left on a five-day backpacking trip, and I was a little worried that I'd be too nervous about our trip to enjoy the meal.
I shouldn't have worried — this was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had.
Arriving at Seasons of Durango
Seasons is located in downtown Durango on Main Street.
They have a seasonally rotating menu, so the meals we had may or may not be available when you visit. You can check out their current menus here.
When we arrived at Seasons, we asked for outdoor seating and sat at one of the tables in front of the restaurant. However, a motorcycle rally was going on at the exact same time, and it was loud.
The host kindly showed us through the restaurant (and all the indoor seating) to the (much quieter!) back patio.
It was so sweet and pretty back there!
I loved all the plants.
Eating at Seasons Rotisserie + Grill
Our server arrived quickly and was incredibly helpful and friendly. I wish I could remember her name!
She helped us navigate the menu and choose our meals. I'd arrived planning on ordering trout, but was briefly was tempted by the Belgian mussels. She assured me the trout was phenomenal.
My husband opted for the rotisserie chicken (our server's recommendation), but swapped in the blue cheese mashed potatoes instead of garlic mashed potatoes.
We had some complimentary bread (from a local bakery).
When my the trout with cheesy grits arrived, I took one bite and knew it was some of the best trout I’ve ever had.
His chicken was also fantastic. I took a few bites of the blue cheese mashed potatoes, and it reminded me that I need to make some at home again soon!
It's one of the best side dishes ever.
Because we'd be backpacking for the next five days, it was easy to talk us into dessert. We needed the calories, I think.
We opted for the tiramisu and did not regret our choice!
I'm not sure how they did it, but it tasted as if there was a sugary, brûléed topping over our tiramisu instead of the normal simple cocoa powder dusting. It was delicious, and the cocoa powder didn't make me cough like normal.
I want their tiramisu recipe!
The server was incredibly friendly and helpful our entire meal, and chatted about what else we should check out while visiting.
Seasons is definitely one of my new favorites in Durango!
