Lachelle: Let’s go to Sooki and Mimi!
They are located in Uptown, offering a prix fixe three course dining experience.
A prix fixe menu is a type of menu that offers a multi-course meal for a fixed price.
We were able to select one item from each course and share it with each other.
I have never given a restaurant a 5* review, but after my dining experience at Sooki and Mimi, I may change my mind.
The restaurant gives me all of the feels of California. There are chili peppers posed as decor being dried in various spaces.
I love restaurants that aesthetically make me feel like I am not in Minnesota.
I enjoy food that brings me complete satisfaction, bite after bite where the flavors never leave your palette, like coffee breath.
The service was impeccable. Nicholas was not only knowledgeable of the menu but very attentive and pleasant.
But let’s get into the deets of the menu and how beautiful each dish is.

✅ Make a reservation for best accommodations.
✅ The bar is available; first come, first serve and offers a bar menu.
✅ Bring a friend or two so that you can share.
✅ Try going before sunset. The restaurant is pretty dim. If you want to take pics, you’ll need adequate lighting.
✅ There is a cool basement bar that you can access thru the alley. There is no indication that you are going into the basement. Just open the white-ish door and head downstairs. They serve crafted spirits while playing 70s music from a turn table. No mic.
