Taste the Southwind Difference
One of the best things about life is indulging in delicious food. At Southwind, our residents enjoy healthy, Cajun-infused meals daily made with traditional flavors and locally-sourced, fresh ingredients.
Our culinary works of art, inspired by our award-winning Executive Chef Reynold and Southwind’s certified Dietary Manager, provide a charming and luxurious dining experience every day.


Chef Reynold, with 40 years of experience and training from the Culinary Institute of New York, expertly trains our dietary managers at Southwind on how to turn ordinary food into meals that look and taste extraordinary.

The secret to his culinary genius is highlighting southern flavors and cooking techniques that residents grew up with and used themselves – reminding them of cherished traditions and family recipes.


Chef Reynold, along with our passionate culinary staff, ensure that a dash of soul and a pinch of Cajun love go into every dish made for a truly memorable dining experience. This means residents enjoy gumbo or red beans and rice made from scratch, soups from homemade broths, and pureed foods plated like they’re works of art.

In addition to everyday dining, Southwind often holds special gourmet-inspired tasting and food-pairing events in the dining room, like wine and sushi pairings or deconstructed waffles residents rave about.


At Southwind, the ultimate restaurant-style dining experience is merely a short walk from our resident suites. While outings to local restaurants are not uncommon, our residents don’t have to leave Southwind to enjoy a charming atmosphere, attentive service, and beautifully-plated meals.


The linen tablecloths, quality dishware, and exceptional service are reminiscent of hotel dining or restaurant amenities, but is actually your new kitchen table – serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
