My family likes loves eating out. I don’t have to cook and I still end up with a clean kitchen. It’s a win-win. With that said, I don’t like to spend a whole bunch of money at a restaurant either. With that said, we often chain restaurants that we know are going to be yummy!
My husband and I were recently invited to MiMi’s Cafe to check out the Mimi’s Cafe menu revamp. Two words: delish and impressive!
Mimi’s new menu definitely brings you to a French Bistro. The new menu is perfect with dishes created for everyone. The appetizers and soups were fantastic. The salad was, too. I have never eaten a mussel, and would have never thought I would. Until everything else was so fantastic that I couldn’t say “no”. (It was good.) The chef brought out dishes that I could have eaten every day for the rest of my life. Seriously.
The president of the company and corporate chef graced us with their presence and I felt like I had known these two people forever. They were that genuine. (The president and I shared a plate – one of the many brought out for us. Who does that?)
I ordered the Coq au Vin, which was cooked to perfection. Imagine a chicken, braised in red wine, mushrooms and pearl onions, served on top of mashed potatoes surrounded by petite pois (peas). Yeah.
My husband had the Bistro Bavette Steak with mushroom-infused au gratin potatoes and bordelaise sauce with garden fresh sauteed vegetables. It was cooked to perfection! (The potatoes were so tasty!)
We were also presented with other tasty dishes: Le Burger de Madame, Pasta Carbonara a la Mimi’s, the 1129 Nouveau … Each and every dish was unique and truly a treat.
If you have never been to Mimi’s Cafe, what are you waiting for? If you haven’t been there for a while, get there soon! I can personally promise you won’t be disappointed. And, we were assured that if any dish doesn’t come out just as you had hoped, the chefs will make it right.
