Here, life is sweet (and savory)

Our flexible dining program features fresh seasonal ingredients, cooked to order, and a menu that changes daily and offers choices to please every palate. Dine with neighbors or host guests at one of our multiple restaurants or call in an order for curbside pickup.

Nutrition and freshness are paramount. Special diets are happily accommodated, and special requests are encouraged. John Knox Village residents have high expectations, and our dining team aims to exceed them.

Chef Ravin’s approach to dining

By the time Chef was 22, he had traveled half the world. He was trained in classical cooking, and his dining venues reflect worldly sophistication without pretense and encompass a wide variety of styles, each with its own menu and ambiance.

Chef loves a challenge! He enjoys collaborating with residents on everything from making your grandma’s Hungarian goulash recipe the special of the day to working with one of the Village’s resident clubs on a special dinner.
