Experience dining like never before.

We’ve been busy in the kitchen. Creating and maintaining the finest dining experience you’ll find at any Austin retirement community is a front-burner priority for Westminster. Every detail matters. We put pride and imagination into creating bold recipes and varied menus, along with expert preparation and presentation to bring you highly nutritious, spectacular selections every day and evening.

We start with the finest food products, including fresh meats and produce. Every item on the menu is made from scratch, and menus change each week. We welcome resident recommendations as well. Our staff dietitian recommends best nutrition practices. We offer healthy choices to accommodate varying dining requirements, such as gluten-free options. We have more than 30 sugar-free dessert options. Our pastry chef is sure to delight your pallet with a variety of baked goods straight from our kitchen.

We are proud and honored to say that Westminster’s Food and Beverage Department has a great reputation with Residents, families and guests of the community.

Introducing Executive Chef James Blanton

James began his career at Austin Country Club where he quickly discovered his passion for teaching and innovation. This experience led him to his next venture as a Culinary Arts instructor for the University of Houston’s School of Hotel & Restaurant Management.

In 2001, James accepted a position as Executive Chef for Sysco Food Service Central Texas.  This position enabled him to return to the city he loved and progress to the next step as a Culinary professional.  Following Sysco, James served as the Executive Chef for Austin Icons, a local restaurant chain that includes Z’Tejas Grill and Iron Cactus as part of their portfolio.  James’ success with Austin Icons earned him the opportunity to utilize his expertise to open a 5-Star resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where he excelled at creating the perfect dining experience.
