Taste The Difference At Encore
One of the best things about life is indulging in delicious food. At Encore, our residents enjoy healthy, Cajun-infused meals every day made with traditional flavors and locally-sourced, fresh ingredients.
Our culinary works of art, inspired by our award-winning Executive Chef Reynold and Encore’s certified Dietary Manager, provide a charming and luxurious dining experience every day.


Chef Reynold, with 40 years of experience and training from the Culinary Institute of New York, expertly trains our dietary managers at Encore on how to turn ordinary food into meals that look and taste extraordinary.

The secret to his culinary genius is highlighting southern flavors and cooking techniques that residents grew up with and used themselves – reminding them of cherished traditions and family recipes.


Chef Reynold, Encore’s talented Dietary Manager, along with our passionate culinary staff, ensure that a dash of soul and a pinch of Cajun love go into every dish made for a truly memorable dining experience. This means residents enjoy gumbo and red beans and rice made from scratch, soups from homemade broths, and pureed foods plated like they’re works of art.


In addition to everyday dining, Encore often holds special events in the dining room, like gourmet wine and food tastings, which our residents rave about.


At Encore, the ultimate restaurant-style dining experience is merely a short walk from our resident suites. While outings to local restaurants are not uncommon, our residents don’t have to leave Encore to enjoy the charming atmosphere, attentive service, and beautifully-plated meals found in our dining room.


The linen tablecloths, quality dishware, and exceptional service are reminiscent of hotel dining or restaurant amenities, but is actually your new kitchen table – serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
