Kendal Offers Delectable Dining
The goal of Kendal Dining is to positively impact residents’ lives by providing the freshest healthful foods in a way that caters to individual tastes and exceeds expectations daily. We strive to create an experience that fosters residents' anticipation of each and every meal which is served in a casually elegant gathering place that not only provides superior dining but also gives reasons to meet, connect, socialize, maintain relationships, and gather as a community.
Nutrition and Wellness
We use the freshest ingredients, incorporating whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables, and a vegetarian entrée choice on our menus. We provide accurate nutrition information. We season with fresh herbs and use light oils while avoiding heavy creams, salts and sauces. Our chefs and Registered Dietitians are involved in menu preparation to ensure the highest quality and accuracy.
Food and Menus
We provide choice, flexibility, and value by offering items prepared upon request and both dine-in or takeout options. We offer a mix of new and traditional dishes, following the styles of fine hotels and restaurants. Kendal’s food is great because of the high quality ingredients prepared freshly every day.
Venue and Choices
Multiple dining venues provide residents, families, staff, and guests with a place and a reason to gather. Our dining environment exudes comfortable warmth where residents feel relaxed, pampered and right at home with the service and appetizing choices we offer.
Seasonally Fresh, Regional, Locally Grown, and Sustainable
We offer relaxed American cuisine featuring regional and local ingredients, when available, while using minimally processed ingredients. We are sensitive to the impact that we have on the land and water as well as the impact on the farmers and producers of our food. We continue to strive for more sustainable practices.
Chef Prepared Recipes and Specials
The quality of the food we serve certainly is one of the most important aspects of our communities. Our dining service team not only strives to meet and exceed the needs and desires of residents and guests, but tries to anticipate them as often as possible.
Participation and Feedback
Kendal's working relationships between staff and residents allows for an open dialog in which residents can share ideas and evaluate the Dining Service department on an on-going basis. This helps to ensure that dining services is reflective of the resident’s needs and desires and allows Kendal to continue to adapt to new ideas in diets and food preferences.
