“Anybody can make you enjoy the first bite of any dish, but only a real chef can make you enjoy the last.”

The Kensington strives to make each meal a satisfying experience in every way. Excellence in cuisine, presentation, service, and atmosphere is our goal.

We strive to please our residents and families every time they dine so they are eager to return.

Our main dining room is sophisticated and elegant. We urge families to dine with their loved ones often, as they would if their loved ones lived elsewhere. Our talented and professionally trained executive chef, Norm Fintz, creates meals that are flavorful, nutritious, and presented well.

Weekly menu selections are diverse and rotated regularly. Because taste and nutrition are priorities, ingredients are of very high quality. Meats include prime cuts.

Poultry, seafood and seasonal fruits and vegetables are fresh. Breads are wholesome and spices are flavorfully balanced. Heart-healthy selections are available every day. Servers will help identify sodium-restricted, low fat and sugar-restricted items.
