Mimi’s Bistro, Grosse Pointe Park MI | Merchant Profile

Mimiís Bistro first opened in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan in July of 2014. The restaurantís name is a tribute to owner Melanie Schriddeís great-grandmother who was a professional chef in Germany. When Melanieís mother found out she was going to open up her own restaurant, she gave Melanie a box of aprons that used to be Mimiís, which is what inspired the name. When Melanie bought the location, the space next door was also included in the rent so she decided to turn that part of the building into a gallery. The gallery was named after her father, Charles Schridde, who was a great illustrator and artist. Every three months Melanie uses the gallery to showcase local artistsí work as well as her fatherís work. When the gallery isnít in use, it is utilized to seat overflow from the restaurant or to hold private events and parties. Mimiís Bistro is a quaint restaurant that focuses quality and freshness.
