what kind of food do you serve at Sooki & Mimi?

the short answer: we serve delicious food.

the longer answer: we serve food that speaks to chef ann kim’s personal journey as a South Korean immigrant woman raised in a suburb of Minnesota, educated in NYC, fueled by a hunger for tortillas and profound respect for masa. while she often feels like she’s in a constant identity crisis, her food reveals the gift of a life lived at the intersection of cultures, sustained by curiosity and appreciation.

Yes, we offer a delicious à la carte menu featuring tacos, wings, a butcher's cut, hominy grits & prawns, and more. Our entire menu is available in the dining room, patio and upstairs bar. we do not yet serve food in the basement bar, but a snack menu is coming soon! 

i heard you were a no-tipping restaurant, what does that mean? 

You heard right. We're passionate about cultivating a rich and stable work experience that provides fair and equitable wages and benefits for our entire team. To achieve this, we utilize a no-tipping model which adds a percentage of the total to each guest bill as a surcharge. One hundred percent of the amount generated by the surcharge goes towards employee wages. You can learn more and explore frequently asked questions here
