Mimi’s CMO Stewart Slocum explains the appeal: “’Under a Brick’ is an innovative way to cook chicken, with the added weight making the skin crispy and golden brown while the meat remains juicy. Chicken Under a Brick is one of our most beloved culinary offerings, and we are excited to bring it back for our guests this summer.”

Mimi’s recently introduced deep dish slab pies made in-house and with extra flaky hand-made thick crust in three mouth-watering flavors. In addition to the limited-time-only Coconut Cream Slab Pie, Mimi’s guests can choose from French Silk Mud Pie (smooth chocolate, coffee and cream with graham cracker crust and Ghirardelli chocolate drizzle) and Crème Brûlée Cheesecake (French vanilla buttermilk cheesecake caramelized sugar top and graham cracker crust).

The Coconut Cream Slab Pie (rich and creamy slab pie made with coconut milk and macadamia nut graham cracker crust, topped with praline toasted coconut) will be offered for a limited time through September.
