    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.

    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

    This place is awesome, my wallet got stolen but awesome bartenders who tried and friendly patrons got it back to me. Awesome place! Just don't leave your wallet out.

    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

    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

    Pbr duh cheap. Also, say thank you to your bartenders. It sounds silly but they appreciate it, just as you would.
