Our Popular Dining Features 

Traditionally, the “breaking of bread” and sharing of food is how people come together—in celebration, in times of sorrow, and in times of togetherness. It is part of our very makeup as human beings. 

This ties into the good work, Yoi Shigoto, which we promote by setting high expectations and providing our residents and their families an experience to thoroughly enjoy. Some of our more popular dining features include: 

  • Sensational signature brunches. Enjoy your favorite entrees or try something new prepared from scratch with fresh, seasonal ingredients. 

  • Masterful action-display cooking. Savor the sizzles, sights, and scents of our culinary delights prepared before your eyes. 

  • Convenient anytime dining. Dine at your leisure, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. 

  • Dazzling Around the World themed dinners. Experience dinner and a show, complete with festive décor and music!
