I noticed last week that it looks like a new restaurant is opening in the spot where Mimi’s bar & Grill was. Not a good spot since parking is abysmal in the area. The have a help wanted sign, but no sign of an opening date. The inside looks 80-90% finished.
The Chef/Owner, Brian Sernatinger, graduated from the French Culinary Institute (same place I did, it seems he was 3 years before me) and has worked in some great places in NYC (Grammercy Tavern, Craft) as well as six years in Spain, and in 4-5 years in Mexico, where he had his own restaurant of the same name, Unico, in Tulum.
