Winchester Gardens recently completed a $3 million project to upgrade and expand the existing clubhouse dining room and provide a variety of other distinct dining areas for community members to enjoy. The newly expanded dining room, The Oak Room, offers an inviting setting for fine dining with comfortable, spacious seating for up to 76 guests and an action station for chef demonstrations.
During the renovation process, doors from the 1920s-era dining room were discovered on-site. To maintain these original architectural gems, the doors were refurbished and installed to create separation between The Oak Room and the new tapas bar/lounge, the Manor House Lounge; the original wainscoting was refurbished as well. Open and airy, the newly appointed dining room also includes greater views of the recently renovated terrace dining area, Olmsted Courtyard.
With the completion of The Oak Room, Winchester Gardens now offers a variety of distinct new dining areas: casual dining, lounge/bar, fine dining, chef’s station, and outdoor terrace. Executive Chef Wayne Ricco, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, specializes in savory traditional favorites and innovative recipes that blend techniques and flavors from around the world. You have the choice to dine in your apartment, meet in our inviting dining room, or grab a quick bite at our casual bistro or refreshing outdoor terrace!
