DevonHouse Senior Living | May 2022 News & Events

News from Chef Jim’s Kitchen

Allentown Senior Living Food and Beverage ManagerWe have many celebrations to enjoy this month! We’re offering a Mexican-style meal on Cinco de Mayo, featuring tacos and churros. We will be celebrating Mother’s Day on May 8th, with a favorite shrimp dish as the entree, and a scrumptious seasonal strawberry dessert.

At the end of May, we celebrate Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer. We will be on the patio for a picnic – join us as we fire up the grill for hot dogs and hamburgers.

Memorial Day also kicks off our weekly patio picnic lunches. Throughout the summer, we’ll be grilling outside on Wednesdays at lunch. (Of course, you can always order from the regular menu inside, too.)

Be sure to check the dining calendar for more great dining events this month!
