Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box.

The chefs at Mim's whip up artfully plated dishes in an upscale, traditional American style. The regular menu satisfies carnivorous cravings with options such as the filet mignon and shrimp au poivre in a cracked-peppercorn brandy cream sauce ($26), or sandwiched fare such as the Sterling Silver burger, whose fluffy bun conceals a powerful 10-ounce all-beef patty ($13). Chefs roll out a doughy stage for the Spago Pizza, starring blackened chicken in a fated romance with coyly creamy goat cheese ($13).
Dinner guests arrive early to feast upon the delicacies of the prix fixe menu, assembling three-course meal-parties from six appetizers, thirteen entrées, and three desserts. Begin an assembly with parmesan-artichoke risotto cakes and a pomodoro dipping sauce, or start out rich with lobster bisque. Entrées range from comfort foods such as chicken pot pie and homestyle lasagna to daring flavor options including pecan-crusted tilapia with cranberry-orange compote and vanilla-scented whipped sweet potatoes, or rigatoni and blackened skirt steak, accessorized with gorgonzola, spinach, and porcini-mushroom-sage cream sauce. For dessert, sugar vampires can sink fangs into warm apple crisp, oreo mousse pie, or New York–style cheesecake.
