For those who want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with loved ones this Thanksgiving, Mimi’s is offering chef-prepared, handmade, dine-in and take-home holiday meals. Mimi’s will serve its famous brunch beginning at 7 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Then, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., dine-in guests can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal featuring a first course of soup or salad, an entree with roasted turkey and classic holiday sides such as buttered cornbread stuffing and green bean casserole, and dessert of pumpkin or pecan pie. This meal is priced at $19.99 for adults and $9.99 for children under age 12. Reservations are recommended.
Guests who are celebrating at home can still leave the cooking to Mimi’s with three take-home options:
Thanksgiving Feast: Traditional holiday meal that serves 8-10 people featuring a whole herb-butter-basted turkey, buttered cornbread stuffing, candied-pecan mashed sweet potatoes, whipped mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, apple cranberry orange relish, traditional turkey gravy, two carrot nut loaves, a whole pumpkin pie and a whole pecan pie. $104.99
Just the Sides: The same array of Mimi’s traditional holiday sides for guests who prefer to prepare their own turkey and desserts. $49.99
Brunch: A tasty selection of fresh-baked croissants or muffins, fresh mixed fruit and single-serving Lorraine or Florentine quiches serves six people for $42 or 12 people for $84.
Mimi’s will also offer whole pumpkin ($16.99) and pecan pies ($17.99) to take home. Guests can make reservations or order for the holiday now. Take-home feasts require 24-hour lead time for pickup and 1.5-2 hours of heating time. For details, locations and pricing, visit www.mimiscafe.com.
