Dining Experience

The Blake Culinary Experience

We know that food plays an important role in the quality of life, so our approach is hospitality-driven. To us, this means thoughtful and well-balanced menus that offer restaurant-style choices, a smiling staff, fresh flowers on the table, real china and glassware, and a team that genuinely listens and takes pride in serving our residents.

Each day we offer our residents selections from a restaurant-style à la carte menu, which is always available. We are especially proud of our wide range of breakfast classics, such as Belgian waffles, fresh fruit with granola and yogurt, muffins, eggs, omelets, and freshly-ground coffee.


Quality is on The Menu

The Blake works with the same suppliers of fine local restaurants. That means our chefs can prepare high-quality produce, seafood, meats and seasonal specialties. We are proud to provide signature Southern cuisine that is both delicious and health-focused.

With years of experience in fine dining, The Blake’s chefs and cooks are able to prepare nutritious meals that rival the quality of the best restaurants. Our culinary team focuses on brain foods: nuts and fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, beans, greens, fruits and a wide array of nutrient-dense vegetables, both cooked and raw. We feature low-sugar desserts and low-sodium entrées as needed.

Each day we offer a homemade feature, which is designed around the preferences of our residents.  Residents may also order selections from the restaurant-style a la carte menu which rotates seasonally and is always available.  Here’s a sampling of real dishes recently served at The Blake.
