My friends and I are foodies and like so many of our residents we are delighted with the brand new Pub and adjacent Bake Shop in one big room. These new venues offer us two more dining experiences in relaxed, comfortable surroundings in addition to the more formal Courtyard dining room.
Unlike the Courtyard, open only for dinner, the Pub is open from 7:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and the Bake Shop is open from 7:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. daily. We’re now enjoying breakfast with all the trimmings–bacon, eggs, pancakes, waffles, bagels and lox, and juices. Of course the bakery adds its own list of temptations with muffins, Danish, croissants, fresh bread loaves and baguettes to take home along with home-made cookies and chocolate sweets made by our in-house pastry chef.
I have a hard time choosing from the generous lunch-dinner menu with 37 choices from among the Starters, Salads, Healthy Choices, Main Plates, Sandwich selections and, of course, tantalizing Desserts. I’ve got a lot of tastings ahead of me. Meanwhile, I loved my Oyster Po Boy and the Lobster Roll and I can’t wait to try the Cuban pork sandwich and Chicken Quesadilla, the Grilled Turkey Burger and now I’m getting hungry again.
We also get together in the late afternoon from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. for drinks and socializing before dinner. It can be hard deciding on a drink from among 15 wine choices, eight bottled beers and three more tap beers. Of course, we also can choose our libations from over a dozen types of coffees and teas. We keep lubricated in the most delicious ways here!
And throughout all the excitement and fun choosing from the new Pub and Bake Shop delights we’re reminded that the gym is nearby to keep us fit and in shape despite all our new temptations.
