Senior Dining and Nutrition in Essex, CT

Bon Appétit

Delicious food adds an indescribable joy to life, and fresh ingredients connect you to nature for an experience that is nourishing in more ways than one. At Essex Meadows, we know meals are integral to a fulfilling lifestyle. With a thoughtful eye on senior nutrition, our culinary team uses the freshest local ingredients whenever possible: sun-ripened fruits and vegetables, coastal seafood, and certified Angus beef.

We believe every dining experience should be a delight — with delectable dishes and welcoming smiles from our culinary team. You will enjoy a delectation for your senses, from the moment you lift your napkin off the table to the moment you return it.

The Spice of Life

Often, our food and beverage director, Matthew Whitbeck, will surprise you with an unexpected treat: a sampling of Connecticut wines and cheeses, afternoon tea with an assortment of finger sandwiches, or a mid-winter social with gourmet hot chocolate.

A Menu of Venues

Our formal dining room is the consummate fine dining experience. This elegant setting welcomes you to enjoy a meticulously prepared four-course culinary experience.

The Pub offers a relaxed environment where you can enjoy traditional fare. Settle in with a freshly drawn glass of Harpoon IPA and a hot Reuben sandwich to unwind after a busy day.

Meadows Mart provides simple grab-and-go options, including salads and sandwiches, you can enjoy anywhere. We, however, recommend the scenic patio for lunch al fresco with a friend.

Your personal residence can be the ideal dining spot on certain days. Our dining team will happily deliver food from any community venue right to your door.

Food should be savored. With our careful attention to detail and senior nutrition, high standards and an adventurous spirit, we expect the dining experience at Essex Meadows will exceed your expectations and make each day more flavorful.
