Great Cuisine And Great Friends. The Two Best Ingredients For Every Meal.

Our recipe for a great dining experience starts with you. Multiple, customizable menu options are designed each day based on resident feedback. Intentional seating helps you connect with like-minded peers, focusing on making sure your dining experience is a truly personalized, enjoyable experience.

We get to know each of our residents on a deep level to become familiar with the foods they like, how they want their meals prepared, and what matters most to them. Using locally sourced food, everything is made fresh for you — and you never have to clear the table or wash a dish afterward.

Our Dining Experiences

Our diverse menus reflect the different dining preferences of each community we serve. We constantly use the feedback we receive from our residents to keep our menus fresh and enjoyable.

Local Community

Local farmers are our partners for seasonal produce, and we use only high-quality sources for our meat and other food staples to ensure that the absolute best ingredients go into every meal.

Monthly Food Feedback

Using forums, comment cards, resident counsels and more, we have so many ways for our residents to provide feedback on meals and their dining experiences.

Your Personal Dining Experience

At Independence Village, our Executive Chef or sous chef is in the dining room every evening during your service to connect with you and get your feedback.

Brush Up On Your Cooking Skills

Nothing But The Highest Culinary Standards

From international culinary training to personal gourmet cooking for celebrities, our Executive Chefs bring diverse culinary experiences to our communities. By virtue of their specially trained backgrounds, they won’t settle for pre-made or poorly sourced foods, insisting on only the best ingredients in every dish.
