Signature Dining and Restaurants for Seniors at Greenspring

Delicious On-Site Dining

Senior living in Northern Virginia has never been so delectable!

At Greenspring, we believe your dining experience should be one of the most enjoyable parts of your day. That’s why we proudly offer Signature Dining, a commitment to a variety of fresh, cooked-to-order menu offerings, executed at the moment of service and delivered to you in a variety of fabulous, on-site restaurants.

Signature Dining includes an impressive selection of at least 25 items at a time. Our menus combine familiar favorites and regional specialties, plus weekly chef specials, seasonal dishes, and even holiday-themed events—all served to your specifications.

While every apartment home includes a well-appointed kitchen, once you sample Signature Dining, you may find yourself spending less time preparing meals on your own.

An Expert Dining Organization

Greenspring hires only the best and most passionate team members at every level—from our professionally trained executive chef to our eager waitstaff. The entire culinary team works together to create an extraordinary experience every time you dine. Entrées are prepared at the moment of service with fresh ingredients and painstaking attention to detail.

The dining organization is overseen by a full-time dining director who serves as part of the community’s leadership team. Dining leaders work closely with the Greenspring Resident Advisory Council to ensure that residents have a valued voice. 

Social Opportunities Abound

Great dining isn’t just about the food; it’s about the company. We offer restaurant-style seating, so you always have the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy plenty of lively conversation.

Happy hour is the perfect opportunity to mix and mingle. Enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine, or classic cocktail as you chat with old friends and new neighbors alike. 

Flexible Meal Plans

Our Springfield senior living community offers two convenient meal plans. The cost of each plan is included in your Monthly Service Package, making your dining experience even more enjoyable. Choose which plan best fits your preferences and lifestyle:

  • 20-Meal Plan: This plan, which includes 20 meals per month, is ideal for those who like to do a little cooking themselves or sometimes venture off campus for meals. Choose this option and you'll pay a reduced Monthly Service Package amount.

  • Traditional Plan: Also called “Meal of the Day,” this option allows you to receive a meal credit equal to the number of days in the month to be used at any of the on-site restaurants. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to cook every meal.

You have choices about how and when you'll use your credits, no matter which plan you select. Each quarter, you also have the option to change your meal plan, providing even more flexibility.

The Signature Dining program is fabulous!
