Keep reading to learn about how East Ridge at Cutler Bay enhances the quality of life for its assisted living residents by providing first-class restaurant-style dining.

An Array of Dining Options

At East Ridge at Cutler Bay, assisted living residents have access to different dining options, and the dining experience is expanded to meet residents’ needs and preferences.

Dining venues at East Ridge include a dining room that provides full-service, restaurant-style dining and a bistro where you can grab something to go.

Along with venue and menu variety, many senior living communities have incorporated more resort-like amenities into the lifestyles they offer. Some of these amenities include:

Restaurant-Style Dining: The common misconception is that residents in senior living communities eat buffet-style in a crowded cafeteria. In reality, you’ll receive on-the-spot service from a server, artfully plated meals, and a host at East Ridge’s dining rooms.

A Convenient To-Go Option: You can stop by the bistro for a quick bite if you’re heading out on the town or attending one of the many activities and events at East Ridge.

Fresh Farm-to-Table Ingredients: Menus with fresh produce and locally sourced ingredients are becoming increasingly popular with seniors. In response to this desire for higher quality foods and to support area farms, local sourcing has become a common practice within retirement community dining programs.
