St. Patrick's Day Lunch at Mimis Cafe
There is a new restaurant in our neck of the Virginia woods called Mimis Cafe and we celebrated St. Patrick's Day yesterday at this New Orleans themed restaurant. Many other folks were doing the same thing. In fact, we ran into our next door neighbor Ken Bond at the restaurant.
This restaurant really plays up the New Orleans Preservation Hall jazz theme. It is very colorful and cozy.
Several ladies groups came out yesterday to the restaurant. If you enlarge the above photo by clicking on it you will see the ladies wearing green for St. Paddy's day. In the background you will see a lively group of Red Hat Ladies who decorated their hats with some green for the St. Paddy's Day luncheon. I think everyone at this restaurant was having an excellent time and a great meal. And speaking of meals look below.
Jack had the French dip sandwich with the crispiest and tastiest onion rings on the side. And would you believe that he followed that with a bread pudding with a butter whiskey sauce. Oh my, Jack!
What did I have? Look here. I had quiche Lorraine that had a delicious puff pastry crust along with a tossed salad, fresh fruit and rich and decadent carrot muffin. That muffin was my dessert. We each had a beer just because it is a St. Paddy's Day tradition. Jack had a Samuel Adams from Boston and I had a Belgian wheat beer with a slice of orange.
This restaurant is a great new addition to our neighborhood and we will definitely be back for more great food. Here is this restaurant's website: http://www.mimiscafe.com/OurStory.aspx
