Finally got to try Mimi's, a tiny French restaurant in the West Village that came highly recommended. Being that this is more of a sit down place rather than my ususal sit at the bar and order food type place, I dragged my sister along who always humors me when I want to try a new restaurant.
Lighting was not great for food pictures, and I am way too insecure to brave the flash for a hipster food pic in a nice restaurant. Drinks were perfect. Never knew I liked blood orange in my negronis, but I do now. Scallops and blood sausage was perfect. And yes I secretly ordered it hoping my sister wouldn't like it, so I would have to eat all of it. But she did. I went for the Ris de Veau, sweet breads, for my main course which was topped with oranges and blood sausage. It was amazing.
We decided to stick with the hot appetizers, although the cold ones looked delicious. I was lucky to grab a picture of this Gnocchi Parisian, topped with cream, cabbage, peas, and ham, before we inhaled it.
Apple tart topped with ice cream was a perfect way to finish up an amazing meal. The two glasses of generously poured wine definitely helped me stomach the bill.
Mimi's in New York's West Village. My favorite restaurant so far. Small venue, great food and service, and has made me a guaranteed return diner.
