Gregory Doucet, former executive chef of Jolie’s Louisiana Bistro, has been named executive chef at The Blake, a senior living facility set to open this spring in Lafayette.
Keeping with its philosophy that food plays an important role in a person’s quality of life, The Blake says its dining options will focus on high-quality seasonal specialties, seafood, meats and produce, while offering well-balanced menus in a restaurant-style environment.
This 93,000-square-foot retirement community is under construction at the intersection of Kaliste Saloom Road and Polly Lane. Located across from Lafayette Heart Hospital, the facility offers 110 apartments with “resort-style” amenities for assisted living and memory care residents.
The Blake is owned by Alabama-based Quality Senior Living and will be operated by its affiliate, Blake Management Group of Jackson, Miss.
