Bienvenue Az! Mimi’s Cafe Scottsdale Celebrates Reopening, New Bistro Look

Bistro lovers are in for a treat. The reopening of Mimi’s Cafe & Bistro in Scottsdale will be celebrated in locations across the Phoenix metro area with a Sips and Apps event, Wednesday, Feb. 9. Eight Mimi’s Cafes will host the soiree, featuring a free Small Plate, Starter or Petite Treat with an adult beverage purchase from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. For guests experiencing the new look in Scottsdale, there will be festivities and more than $3,000 in gifts and prizes.

“Our remodel celebrates the inspiration for Mimi’s as a neighborhood bistro – it’s where you go to reconnect with friends, and enjoy good food, good wine, and good company in relaxed surroundings,” said Mimi Somerman, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Mimi’s Cafe. “We are still the Mimi’s that guests know and love only we are bringing a touch of French inspiration to everything we do.”

The 6,000-square-foot restaurant is one of 12 Mimi’s locations in Arizona and the third in the region to undergo a makeover. The Scottsdale renovations include an expanded bar area and a new bakery case to showcase Mimi’s freshly baked muffins and breads. The reopening takes place 16 years after Mimi’s first opened its doors in Scottsdale at 8980 East Shea Boulevard. The restaurant is known for freshly prepared seasonal fare and signature dishes.

Dignitaries from the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and 94.5 KOOL-FM will join for a ribbon-cutting ceremony starting at 4 p.m. Mimi’s is also giving back to those who give and donating 30 percent of sales from a January 30th fundraiser for Scottsdale Healthcare volunteers. A check will be presented to Jon Levy, Scottsdale Healthcare Volunteer Auxiliary Board President. The money presented to the Scottsdale Healthcare Volunteer Auxiliary will be used to help enhance the lives of patients within Scottsdale Healthcare and to act as a liaison to the community through service and fundraising.
