Alluring Eats

Our award-winning chefs at The Bristal are committed to making every meal a scrumptious and memorable experience with flavorful, fun, nutritious, and creative dishes served daily. We collaborate with the Activities Department to hold festive food tastings, competitions, demos, and themed lunches and dinners, such as Italian Night, Oktoberfest, Cinco de Mayo, and more.

Enjoy prepared-to-order meals at our Chef Action Stations, spend a special evening of elegant dining at The Executive’s Table, or enjoy delicious munchies, desserts, and drinks. The choice is yours. In addition to wine and beer at dinner, we introduce specialty cocktails at The Bristal Spotlight Tavern.

Taste of Home Program

With our Taste of Home program, share your favorite recipe with your peers. Simply fill out a recipe card and return to your Director of Food Service. The Director may then serve the dish at mealtime or hold a demonstration and tasting event with residents.

Residents at The Bristal also influence what’s on the menu at their community. Through monthly Food Committee meetings, a group of representatives meet with the location’s chef and discuss likes and dislikes, and offer ongoing feedback for the menu.

All in all, we have fun with food, and we are conscious, of course, to comply with all religious holidays and observances.

SmartChoice: Brain Food Program at The Bristal

A vital part of healthy living, of course, is a commitment to healthy eating, and we educate residents on how smarter eating promotes better health and well-being.

The chefs at The Bristal have made it their mission to present our residents every day with more nutritionally-conscious choices by creating recipes focusing on “clean foods” – foods that promote healthy brain function and improve cognitive ability.

At The Bristal, you’ll also find heart-healthy, sugar-free, and no-salt-added options available at each of our communities.

Farm to Table

The Bristal also partners with local farmers and providers to ensure that only the freshest, in-season ingredients go into every meal we serve.

Much of our produce comes directly from farmers in the tri-state area. And local meat and seafood are often on the menu as well. Fresh, nutritious food is important to us and our residents – and you’ll find plenty of it here.
