    Get there early & enjoy your food in a relatively quiet & peaceful bar setting, or get there late, dance your ass off, & feed your soul. Get the patatas bravas & thank us later. [Eater 38 Member]

    The food here is available until 2am so if you're hungry be sure to try the lamb chops and mushroom toast. Bartenders are awesome and will call you a cab if you need one. One of my favorite bars.

    Great food (lamb chops & goat cheese balls) that happens to be in a bar. Bartenders Steve and Sheera are great on the drinks so get the Trust Me & let them surprise u w/ a tasty concoction.

    Solid tapas. Brussels sprouts blew my previously ignorant mind. Now I'm chasing the brussel sprout high from Mimis and my life is in a downward (but rather healthy) spiral. Also a elf parade walked in

    Make a night of it off Bourbon: start at a nearby restaurant (eg, Port of Call, Muriel’s or Coop’s) then club on Frenchmen w/ live music (perhaps dba), & wind up @ MIMI's for a real NOLA experience. Read more

    Most things on the food menu are good, but I always go w/the "Trust Me" option. Always the chef's best--has yet to be anything but delicious
