Dining

Food Is Life, and We Make Both Delicious.

We start with handcrafted recipes chosen specifically to showcase the freshest seasonal local fruits and vegetables. We also buy the freshest local seafood, eggs and meats. We hand-brine the meats to give them a rich distinct flavor, making sure to set aside a portion for our residents who need lower sodium dishes.  

Food fuels the body, but an artfully prepared, graciously served meal shared with good friends fuels the soul. That’s what dining experiences at Channing House are all about. 

And let’s not forget our desserts, which we also prepare using the freshest local ingredients and painstaking processes to create a grand finale for each meal.  

We craft our menus very carefully to accommodate a variety of tastes, preferences and dietary restrictions, labeling each dish to make ordering easy. 

Dining Venues 

The Main Dining Room is the social hub of Channing House, echoing with conversation and laughter as bright as the space. Food is served restaurantstyle by friendly servers who take pride in knowing the name and drink preference of residents upon the second or third service. And no lunch or dinner here would be complete without an order from the ever-changing ice cream menu.

Grab and Go is the perfect place to grab a light continental breakfast, sandwich, salad or homemade soup for lunch before heading up to enjoy the panoramic view from the 11th floor “penthouse” dining and event space. The Grab and Go’s bag lunches are also popular with hikers on their way to explore the outdoors.

Private Dining Rooms, which are located on each floor, can be reserved for intimate dinners or special occasions with family and close friends. Residents can also consult with the hospitality manager to arrange catering celebrations and other events.

Special Dining Events 

Webster Street Grill is a highly anticipated monthly fine dining experience that features our creative chefs’ take on everything from rack of lamb, beef tenderloin, prime rib, fresh seafood and more. Each month’s selection is paired with a carefully chosen selection of fine wines. The event is held in our 11th floor “penthouse,” which features breathtaking 360° views that help make the experience even more memorable. 

Inviting friends to celebrate holidays here at Channing House is easy—and you can also invite friends and family to join you for any meal. We’ll provide a lovely meal while you relax and enjoy your time together. Please let us know in advance if you’re inviting a large group.
