- $20 for $40 worth of French dinner cuisine for two or more
Guests dine from a menu of contemporary French cuisine, with dishes such as escargots burgundy with butter, parsley, and garlic sauce ($9.50), braised-beef short ribs in a pinot noir sauce ($20.50), salmon a la francaise stuffed with goat cheese and with sides of spinach and sun-dried tomato ($20.50), and lamb-shank osso buco ($22.50).
Named for both a flower that grows in France's Provence region and the famous French cocktail normally served at Sunday brunch, Mimosa Restaurant unveils classic French cuisine in a relaxing, casual environment. Scents of tender filet mignon, roasted duck, and gratinee onion soup waft through a room decked with white tablecloths, rustic brick accents, and French cabaret posters. Seafood dishes such as stuffed salmon and steamed mussels evoke images of the sunny Mediterranean coast, which can be simulated on the shade-blanketed outdoor patio over crisp croque-monsieur sandwiches or tangy salad niçoise. The staff also prepares a French-style brunch, replete with savory crepes, omelets, profiteroles, and lessons on how to pronounce the guttural French r—the key is having a baguette in one's mouth.
