Taste-of-the-Town – Mimi’s Café

This month’s Taste of the Town was at another one of our local favorites, Mimi’s Café. Twenty-four of us converged on the place, which is kind of a charming little restaurant, and they were happy to host our club. After gathering in the bar and waiting in the foyer, they showed us to our meeting area, which was private from the rest of the dining areas.
The servers got us started with water, wine, and other beverages, and of course as a ravenous crowd, we dove into the warm bread and whipped butter.
One of the things great about Mimi’s is their interesting menu, and from that we had a variety of choices on the table. From the corn chowder- which I personally recommend, to the baguette sandwiches, fresh salads, and some of their famous comfort foods like the French Creole pasta or the pot roast, nobody went away hungry.
It was also great to get several of their over-sized muffins to take with us on the way out.
One of the things that helped make the night a success was the friendly staff. It’s always difficult to look after a large crew like ours, and it started out a little slow, but they found their stride, and as such we finished strong.
Overall it was a great evening, and we are already looking forward to next month’s Taste of the Town, which will be at Lucile’s BBQ on April 18th, so mark your calendars, and we’ll see you there!
