Our dining initiatives are a key part of what makes us rise above – far above – our competitors. We only work with passionate chefs who carefully curate seasonal, regional culinary experiences for our residents. If you’re worried about limited availability and five-week cycled menus, rest assured… that’s never been our style. Instead, you’ll find nothing but nourishing, creative and tantalizing options in our communities.
Here’s what our residents can look forward to every day:
- All day dining, whenever it suits you.
- Lively conversation over a cup of coffee in our Café Bistro Bar, complete with freshly baked pastries, fresh fruit, and gourmet java selections.
A restaurant style breakfast menu, including made-to-order eggs (just how you like them), omelets and other breakfast favorites, along with a daily chef’s special.
- An extensive lunch menu, full of gourmet fresh salads, made-to-order pasta dishes, healthy grilled entrees, homemade soups and a variety of sandwiches and burgers combinations. And of course, an Inspired Chef special.
- An enticing dinner menu with beautifully presented culinary creations, like our marinated beef tenderloin with mustard seed and cumin fried potatoes, grilled salmon with couscous and a tomato butter sauce and our trademark cashew coconut shrimp.
- Whenever there’s a holiday or special event to celebrate, we pull out all the stops with a gorgeous buffet or Sunday brunch service in which you’ll find a wide array of carving and omelet stations, salads, hot entrees and decadent desserts.
- Love to be involved in the culinary experience? Join in the fun with our Chef test kitchen station, where you can watch firsthand the preparation of our new entrees – and enjoy some sample tastes, too.
In addition to our mouthwatering daily dining options, we also have two trailblazing programs available to our residents.
MINDfull Choices – Dementia Prevention Dining
MINDfull Choices is Inspired Living’s total nutrition lifestyle program that uses delicious chef-prepared food chosen specifically to boost and protect brain health. This expertly curated program is based on clinical research showing that MIND, DASH and Mediterranean diets can lower the risk of dementia by up to 53% and slow cognitive decline associated with typical aging by more than six years. And best of all, we offer this cutting-edge program for free.
