Before my birthday bar outing, I stopped into Mimosa, a little French restaurant I had been curious about for ages but never quite curious enough to stop in. After seeing their menu on their website, I decided steak frites would be a lovely way to kick off a boozy night.
Hanger steak with shallots
I was pretty pleased with my meaty dinner. The shallots were in a tangy sauce, which was unexpected and made me slightly wary, but it ended up working well with the steak. The frites were just like any other fries, although I did appreciate they were not mushy or undercooked. I was this close to ordering creme brulee, but decided against it.
They've got a 3 course dinner for $35 and considering one of the first course options is french onion soup, I will probably go that route next time around. Another potentially interesting option is their bouillabaisse, which is a dish I haven't had yet in life. Also, once the nights warm up a bit, I think it'd be very Parisian to sit at one of their outdoor tables in front (although admittedly, Beverly is not very picturesque).
