Residents Enjoy a Variety of Gourmet Meals from Our Award-Winning Chef
Moving to a senior-living community offers benefits like safety, social opportunities, activities and events. And there’s so much more — including freedom from cooking and cleaning.
McKnight Place Assisted Living & Memory Care takes dining a step further to provide residents with exceptional gourmet meals prepared by award-winning Executive Chef Anthony Lyons, CEC.
Chef Anthony presents delicious dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a warm, elegant setting. Residents and guests can enjoy a hot breakfast by the fireplace in the Garden Cafe, gourmet lunch on an outdoor patio or multiple-course dinner in a formal dining room.
Hailing from a small village in Ireland, Chef Anthony offers an impressive repertoire of creative cuisine complemented by timeless classics. He carefully crafts the perfect dining experience using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients paired with exceptional service.
Chef Anthony’s impressive career has included working at some of the most exclusive restaurants and clubs. In addition to creating exquisite signature dishes, he works closely with residents to accommodate special diets and requests with gourmet flair. In a way, he becomes a personal chef to residents.
Marrying Healthy Ingredients with Exquisite Tastes
While taste is paramount, so is nutritional value. Chef Anthony collaborates with a registered dietitian to ensure every dish is healthy and meets the community’s high standards.
“I love using fresh herbs and spices for flavoring rather than using unhealthy fats and salts,” Anthony says. “My passion is creating something that both surprises and delights residents. I especially enjoy it when residents share their favorite recipes. My repertoire is constantly expanding because of them, and now many of their favorites are mine, too.”
McKnight Place residents choose from a variety of flavorful, freshly-prepared and well-balanced meals. A sampling of mouth-watering menu options includes pan-roasted duck, shrimp scampi, sautéed scallops and filet mignon.
The result is the finest food, service and atmosphere. Every day, McKnight Place residents enjoy exceptional meals that make eating well a delight. And residents never have to worry about preparation or clean up.
Catering Services for Private Parties
McKnight Place also offers catering for social and family events in the versatile bistro space. A professional staff makes it easy by taking care of every detail from planning to food preparation and service to clean up. Events can be as elegant or as casual as desired.
Chef Anthony’s signature dishes and gourmet appetizer spreads are proven crowd pleasers. McKnight Place can cater with his classics or develop a custom spread.
