Casual, delicious, and charming are the best ways to describe The Brook -- Lenbrook’s newest dining venue. Formerly known as the Bistro, the completely redesigned venue is open for lunch from 11am – 2pm and for dinner from 5pm – 7:30pm. The informal menu features a variety of classic sandwiches, soups, salads, entrees, and sides -- some of which will change with the season and some will remain constant throughout the year. Residents are able to enjoy many choices including: pizza, quesadillas, chicken salad and BLT sandwiches, market fresh and Asian salmon salads, and homemade desserts … just to name a few menu items.
Ordering at The Brook is simple with the convenience of walk-up ordering with meals brought out to residents’ tables. There will also be a “grab and go” section and, eventually, room service. The dining room is designed for spontaneous or planned gatherings with tables for two and up to six. Careful attention was taken to design The Brook. The beautiful floors are actually luxury vinyl that is easy to clean and maintain, and walkers and wheelchairs can move across it easily. The dining chairs also have the look and feel of designer-style furniture but are practical at the same time. Natural light illuminates the area, and a “green wall” filled with plants enhances the room. It feels like the outside was brought inside with colors and textures reminiscent of Mother Nature’s inherently beautiful and vibrant patterns.
This venue has been purposely designed to offer casual fare in a relaxed setting – allowing residents flexibility when choosing where, when and how they want to enjoy their meals. The Brook is the perfect addition to Lenbrook’s variety of dining venues and truly complements Tim’s Terrace, The Grill Room, Fine Dining, and The Club.
