Sheet1 Page 1 Mimi's Cafe® French Market Onion Soup You might not imagine a tough World War II flying ace would open a restaurant called "Mimi's," but that's exactly what happened in the 70's. 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 40 Mimi's in the chain with a new one opening every other week all of them serving this amazing onion soup that can now be part of your culinary repertoire. Oui! 1/4 cup butter 3 medium white onions, sliced 3 14-ounce cans beef broth (Swanson is best) 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
