NEW YORK, NY, April 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Restaurateur Jacques Ouari is bringing authentic French and Algerian food to the heart of Nolita with the opening of his latest restaurant, Maman & Mimi. Located at 20 Prince Street, the new restaurant is officially open for business.

“Everything I know about food and hospitality was taught to me by my beautiful French grandmother, known to all as, Maman and my beloved Algerian grandfather, who we lovingly nicknamed, Mimi,” said Jacques Ouari. “Maman & Mimi is a celebration of these two incredible forces. Our menu showcases their passion for authentic French and Algerian cuisine and every dish is prepared with the same love and joy that my Maman infused into our family dinners.”

Take a rest from the busy Manhattan streets and enter the rich, flavorful, and candlelit world of Maman & Mimi. Steeped in the old-world traditions of authentic French and Algerian cuisines, the varied menu boasts popular yet unique dishes, including fresh seafood, perfectly prepared steak frites, savory tajines, scrumptious salads, hearty stews, gourmet burgers, French style flatbreads, hand-crafted cocktails, bold wines, and a wide array of delicious hors d’oeuvres. Maman & Mimi will offer its guests a memorable dining experience with European ambience, a perfect meal, and friendly service.

Maman & Mimi will be open for lunch and dinner Monday through Thursday from 12 PM – 11 PM and Friday through Sunday from 12 PM – 12 PM, with a special brunch menu available Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 4 PM.

Bridging the gap between lunch and dinner the bar at Maman & Mimi’s will offer a menu of traditional light fare, including delicious flatbreads and crudité, as well as an extensive list of European wines and house cocktails from 4 – 5 PM.

Al fresco dining is available during the spring and summer months allowing guests to admire Maman & Mimi’s gorgeous Nolita neighborhood while leisurely enjoying a sun-soaked brunch or candlelit, open-air dinner.

Located below the main dining room, Maman & Mimi’s Sou-Sol is the fun and sexy counterpart to the elegant upstairs eatery. The chic and vibrant bar is enticing for both guests of the restaurant and regular patrons looking to dance till dawn Wednesday through Saturday. French infused house cocktails like “Maman’s Mule” and “Mimi’s Fizz” will ensure the party never ends. Cozy booths, low lighting, an attractive staff, and DJs mixing all the right tracks, Sou-Sol offers the perfect recipe for a fun night out.
