Mimi's is part of a national chain, though by the service and food, you would think it was a local restaurant. My wife and I took her mother out for a "belated" Mother's Day dinner. Mom chose this restaurant "just because". Good choice Mom!
When we arrived we were promptly seated and out server, Britt, came over and asked if we had ever been in the restaurant before. We said we had not. She offered to explain the menu, which was quite extensive, and did so in an easy to understand manner. She explained the specials and the signature dishes along with the rest of the menu items. They offer a variety of dishes. Pasta, seafood, sandwiches, “comfort” foods, salads, and more!
One thing that struck me the most was the décor. There was a mixture of Italian and French. Okay, now I am confused. Is this an Italian restaurant, or a French Bistro? Despite the surroundings, (which were quite nice despite the mixture), the food was excellent. My wife and Mom-in-law chose the broiled salmon with asparagus and mashed potatoes. I chose the shrimp piccata fettuccine, with mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes in a creamy lemon caper sauce! It was wonderful!
This was all part of a three course meal, the first part being salad or soup. I had a Caesar salad, my wife the house, and Mom had vegetable soup, homemade. We ended with our deserts. I had a bread pudding in a whiskey butter sauce with fresh whipped cream, my wife had an apple cinnamon crisp, and Mom had a raspberry mousse. It was all wonderful. (There was nothing left of any of the deserts!) As we were getting ready to leave, and our server brought back our credit card, she handed us a container with four delicious looking muffins in it. She said they were complimentary and we should enjoy them. Wow! How often does that happen? All in all a wonderful dining experience.
