Spend Date Night This Winter at Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - Amidst the hectic holiday season, it's difficult to find time to relax, catch up and connect. From local residents to hotel guests, the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center offers a date-night destination that's convenient, affordable and memorable.

Start the night with dinner at one of the hotel's two restaurants in North Bethesda, MD, each offering its own distinct setting and menu. At the upscale Meritage, the menu features fresh, seasonal cuisine and an extensive wine selection. Start with crab and roasted corn chowder, Creole BBQ shrimp with garlic herb French bread or a smoked honey bourbon BBQ pork quesadilla with spicy mango salsa. Main courses cater to all palates and include a vegan parmesan with hazelnut-crusted vegan patty, vegan cheese, linguini and spicy pomodoro sauce; Thai curry shrimp ravioli with roasted red peppers, asparagus, spinach and coconut curry sauce; a classic Marriott burger and bone-in rib-eye with herb-roasted fingerling potatoes, sautéed asparagus, steak butter and buttermilk-fried onions. End on a sweet note with a warm chocolate bundt cake with vanilla ice cream or warm caramelized peaches with cinnamon ice cream.

At the more casual On The Rocks, diners can enjoy both a delicious meal and the big game. Toast with a selection of hand-crafted drinks before moving on to spiced mussels with chorizo, tomato and herb white wine butter sauce; crab cake sliders; buffalo chicken pizza with ranch spread, blue and fontina cheeses, pepperoncini and banana peppers and red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.
