We’re also loving the new “hotel style” room-service menus at soon-to-open Sutter Hospital in Santa Rosa.
Executive Chef Tood McNeive, formerly of Oliver’s Markets, has created an extensive menu that includes plenty of heart-healthy foods for, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as comfort foods like a cheeseburger, macaroni and cheese, pot roast, pot pie and pizzas. There are also doctor-approved liquid diet selections for patients (popiscles, ice cream, soup) and plenty of desserts including apple crisp, brownies and of course, tapioca pudding. Cause it is a hospital after all. A welcome change from the industrial foods we’ve come to expect in hospitals.
We’d be remiss, however, not to mention the incredible food choices at Kaiser, as well, that include locally sourced produce, organic meats and breads. There are daily specials that include soups and curries at a ridiculously affordable price (stay tuned for more on that).
Seems like being a patient doesn’t have to be a gastronomic punishment anymore.
