You might not think that a tough World War II flying ace would open a restaurant called "Mimi's," but that's exactly what happened in the 70s. Arthur J. Simms flew spy missions over France during the war and helped liberate a small French town near Versailles. After the war Arthur ran the commissary at MGM studios in Hollywood, stuffing the bellies of big-time celebs like Judy Garland, Clark Gable and Mickey Rooney. He later joined his son Tom in several restaurant ventures including one called "French Quarter" in West Hollywood. This was the prototype for the French-themed Mimi's Cafe. In 1978, the first Mimi's opened in Anaheim, California. Today there's over 90 Mimi's in the chain with a new one opening every other week; all of them serving this great French onion soup that's topped with not one, not two...three different cheeses. Oui!

Amazing soup. My roommate had it and loved it so I came on here to find it. He said it was better than Mimi's. It could just be because he was in the comfort of our apartment but it us one of the best soups I've made or tasted period.

I make this soup often, it is awesome! I have never tried Mimi's version, but this one rocks. It's perfect for people like me who do not like alot of herbs in soup. I have tried it with low sodium beef broth as well, but found the flavor isn't quite there.
