Dining

Sharing a home-cooked meal with friends and family is one of the simple pleasures of life. Which is why we offer all-day, restaurant-style dining and serve a variety of delicious dishes using only the freshest ingredients.

Our Executive Chef carefully plans and prepares our menu. You can even share your thoughts, ideas and recipes at our Food Service Review each month. It is our pleasure to add our residents' favorite dishes to the menu or to try something new.
