Dining & Nutrition
When it comes to food, let’s be honest: There’s a difference between eating as a way to fuel your body and dining as a way to spark your spirit. At Five Star, we deliver on both. You’ll get healthy, nutritious options that can be tailored to doctor-recommended diets and specific restrictions. And you’ll also get flavorful, inspired meals created by a Food Network celebrity chef who excels in culinary marvels.
In every culture, food is love. It’s central to fostering community, connection, and celebration. We embrace that delicious tradition every day, and every meal, at Five Star.
- Restaurant-style meals developed by a celebrity chef, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal selections
- Focus on nutrition, so you make sure to get the nutrients you need, along with the flavors you love
- Individualized dining choices so you can have your favorite dishes without going against a doctor-recommended diet
- Recipes and tips for residents who love to cook at home, along with cooking competitions as part of our activities mix
From the very start, we set out to redefine the dining experience for senior living, and we’ve succeeded. Come and sample our exceptional and inspired menu selections.
