Dining

Executive Chef and assistant chef prepping food.

There is more to a good meal than the food on the plate. McKnight Place provides residents with delicious and nutritious entrees, decadent desserts and coffee, tea and snacks and an atmosphere that encourages you to sit and linger with your friends for a little while longer.

Our Executive Chef

Executive Chef Anthony Lyons brings a demonstrated record of success, along with international flair, to his role at McKnight Place. His approach is simple — use the freshest and best quality ingredients possible for excellent results. 

Named Chef of the Year by the American Culinary Federation’s Chefs de Cuisine St. Louis, Chef Anthony especially loves working individually with our residents. Dietary restrictions pose little challenge, as he tends to avoid using unhealthy fats and salts in his cooking. Chef Anthony’s creative, flavorful meals at McKnight Place consistently garner rave reviews.

Restaurant-style Dining

Residents at McKnight Place can enjoy restaurant-style dining at every meal which means superb choices and outstanding flavor – and best of all, no more cooking and cleaning up. Residents choose from a variety of flavorful, freshly prepared and well-balanced menu options at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Taste is never compromised, and every dish is approved by a registered dietician to ensure both your health needs and our high standards are met. Using the finest and freshest ingredients possible, Restaurant-style fine dining at McKnight Place makes living and eating well a joy.

Delicious Food

You can wake up each day knowing that your meals are going to be made from delicious, fresh ingredients. Dishes are prepared daily with a wide variety of flavors, styles and taste profiles so you can always find something that satisfies your cravings. And if you need a little pick-me-up in between meals, we’ve got that covered with snacks and coffee available throughout the day.

Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere

While the food on the plate is arguably one of the most important parts of the dining experience, you also want to enjoy your meal in a comfortable setting.

If you need more space you can reserve our versatile bistro space for family celebrations and private parties with your loved ones.
