Do Elegant French Fare At MIMI In Noho Before Devouring (Safe) Cookie Dough
MIMI is a French restaurant that understands elegance and simplicity go hand-in-hand. On the surface, this cozy bistro is all about contemporary minimalism—and it’s the menu that showcases the bulk of creative flair. With masterfully plated dishes like poulet rôti with foie gras and mint, soft shell crab with apple gastrique, and truffle chicken liver mousse, their photogenic food elevates MIMI to primo French cuisine levels. For $65, you can opt for the five-course Chef’s Tasting menu (that’s four savory options and one sweet option). If you’ve got serious MasterChef withdrawal, this type of restaurant is perfect for you.
After dinner, go from elegance to indulgence. DŌ specializes in cookie dough (don’t worry, it’s totally safe), which you literally eat directly out of a bowl. Whether you’re into classic options like chocolate chip and sugar cookie or prefer stretching outside the box with flavors like Fluffernutter and Chocolate Dream, DŌ is the sugar rush of your childhood dreams. Just keep in mind that this petite shop (equipped with a neon sign that reads, “Dreams dough come true”) is usually crowded, so you’ll want to leave room in your schedule for a potentially long line.
