Restaurant Mimosa, which moved to 714 State Street last November from their long-time home on De la Vina, closed their doors on Tuesday, October 9th. Here is a message to the public from owners Derrick and Chris Melton:
As heart breaking as this is to announce we are making our last call tonight for good. Our hands are tied and we have no other choice than to say Thank You and Good night! For those that are local we want to go out with a BANG so join us as tonight for that last call. Its a cash only night so if you do come, bring the green and a smile. We will be here until there are no more people to serve for that is what we live to do.
After the restaurant closed another message was posted:
We went out the way we had wanted to….with quite a BANG! for those that joined us last night we thank you from the bottoms of our hearts. The income is allowing us to pay our staff. The doors are officially closed after 29 1/2 years.
THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT!
In the last 4 years 714 State Street has been the home of several restaurants including Piranha, Matador, Chino’s Rock & Tacos and Mimosa.
