I have to confess, there is a perk that I really did not expect when I began my career at The Willows. We have, hands down, the best restaurant in town, just a few steps from my office.

There are some unique things that The Willows does with our restaurant that really sets us apart and are not often found in senior living communities.

Our first secret weapon is that we have an Executive Chef, Jesus Rangel, who is culinary trained and a veritable artist in the kitchen. That means that his specialty is to come up with delectable dishes and delicious deserts to tempt our residents.

Our second secret is choice. Our residents love choice, so we have a menu of over 30 different dishes that can be ordered any time if the daily specials are not to one’s liking. (Though the specials are mouthwatering. I really look forward to the filet mignon with roasted potatoes!)

Another great feature is that you can eat any time of day, from 7am to 7pm. So if you like brunch at 10 or lunch at 3, or desert in the late afternoon, no problem. Again, choice is very important.

We also create our menu with direct input from our residents. So all their favorites are sure to be available. Our residents love challenging our chef to recreate their family recipes and our menu is frequently updated with seasonal options as well. I made my grandma’s fried chicken this summer and it was a big hit!

Lastly, and most importantly, we love to have fun here, so we are always creating themed meals and parties for our residents because we know that the best meals are ones we share together.

As I say every week, there are so many things to love about The Willows. I’d love to share some with you. Give me a call anytime on my personal number 485-1672.
