Lately, the Lifestyle team at Arcare North Shore have been coming up with new ideas to connect the community and really get to know each other during these changing times.
We brainstormed with the clients and they were very keen on one particular idea.
We have all made some close friendships in the North Shore community, but we miss the times where we could go out and experience fine dining with close friends.
These times were brought back to reality with our very own ‘Arcare North Shore Five Star Dining Experience’.
This experience utilises our beautifully decorated private dining room with gourmet food served by our very talented chef.
Between themselves, clients select a group of four to experience an intimate lunch and five-star experience.
The setting is designed to replicate a prestigious outing with gentle music playing in the background that allows the clients to experience something special during this time.
Every detail is pre-arranged by the Lifestyle team to ensure the experience is uninterrupted and makes for a perfect lunchtime experience for everyone involved.
After today’s first dining experience, word travelled very quickly and soon the five-star dining experience was booked out for the whole month of August and half of September!
Many clients have commented that the food was out of the world.
‘The atmosphere accompanied with the music made for a relaxing, but fantastic lunch that allowed us to feel like we were out in a five-star restaurant,’ a client shared.
‘And this reminds me of the days when Silver Service was the standard for places I used to visit!’ another client shared.
Paired with a couple of wines, laughs and a beautiful à la carte meal, the relaxed dining experience made for an incredible and enjoyable experience that the clients are looking forward to every week.
