A few weeks ago, The Nerd and I were invited to Mimi’s Cafe to sample their new menu. I had never been to Mimi’s before, so I was excited to see what they had in store for us.
I was amazed at some of the things on their new menu — mussels, french cocktails and even some baked brie that I’m *still* dreaming about. The food was the kind you’d find at a high-end restaurant, but for value prices.
Mimi’s Cafe was recently acquired by Le Duff America, Inc., which is working to revamp the restaurant’s image and move toward a focus on classic French cuisine. We were able to meet Executive Chef Katie Sutton, who developed the new menu, and her dedication to serving great food was apparent.
The new menu includes items like Mimi’s Signature Bouillabaisse, Grilled Salmon Salade Niçoise, Coq au Vin and Brioche Croque Madame. Each dish that was served looked like something you’d find in a restaurant in Paris. I couldn’t help myself to just one thing — I had to sample them all!
If you’re looking for a restaurant with great value and delicious food, definitely give Mimi’s Cafe a try. I can’t wait to go back and have some of my favorites again. The baked brie is calling my name!
