Mimi's Restaurant In San Jose, California

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let you know that I ate at Mimi's Restaurant last Saturday night

in San Jose, California, at Westgate (near El Paseo de Saratoga) and had an excellent dinner!

I spoke with the manager, Tom, and he assured me that the Tuscan

chicken dinner was indeed gluten-free if they did not put the

croutons on the dish. The sauce is only composed of butter, dried

tomatoes, squash and artichoke hearts. It was absolutely delicious!

If you order the dish, ask for extra sauce on your mashed potatoes!

Their mashed potatoes do not come from a mix, and their chicken is

not marinated with any type of gluten. I also had their salad with

no croutons and brought my own salad dressing.

While dining, the server mentioned that a guest at a table next to us

also ordered a gluten-free dinner. She was eating turkey with mashed

potatoes and broccoli. I talked with her a moment, and she said that

she loved eating there.

As always, you need to check the ingredients every single time you

eat out, because eating out is risky.

Sue

It just proves it depends on which location you go to when it comes to gluten free knowledge. The managment of Mimi's in Atlanta is woefully undereducated about gluten. The server we had didn't seem to know the word gluten so I was not at all surprised when 2 of our 8 dinners had to be recooked. When my food arrived it was good but I could barely enjoy it since I was starving by then. I complained and was offered a gift card by the CA office but I declined - it wasn't a place I'd ever go back to - in Atlanta anyway. I'm glad the San Jose location is more on the ball and that you enjoyed your meal.

Oh good, the San Jose Mimi's is just a couple of miles from me, and I used to love to eat there...it's good to know that at least someone there knows what gluten is, lol. Course, I'd have to leave out half the stuff you had cuz I can't do dairy, but I'd still get me a good meal.
