Mildred (Mimi) Bluestein Kosene. “Mimi Blue”. Born and raised in Indianapolis. Back when downtown was the only town. When people got dressed up for the theater and restaurant dining was a luxury.

Mimi Blue Meatballs is a tribute to our mother “Mimi Blue” Kosene. Mimi was a Lady, endowed with manners, taste, and an easy social grace. She loved good food whether dining out or cooking for a hard-working husband and three sons. Every home-cooked meal had to satisfy the whole family, as well as any friends who often stopped by. Cooking was the way she brought us together, kept us healthy, and showed us Love.

At Mimi Blue, we make the kind of food Mimi cooked for us at home, but we serve it in the type of comfortable urban setting that Mimi so much enjoyed. Like Mimi herself, our meatball dishes are classics. Each recipe is rooted in culinary tradition, but refined for the modern palette.

Have your Meatballs any way you choose. Mix meats, sauces and sides

Food very good. Didn't see server as often as we liked. Quite noisy - we were seated in the corner and still had trouble hearing each other. Restaurant a bit on the small side. Restrooms out in the food court. The food is good enough to bring us back, but we may try the Mass Ave location to compare.

The appetizer, a goat cheese dip, was amazing; however, the meatballs were bland. This is the second time we have tried Mimi Blue. Service was phenomenal.

Love Mi Mi Blue. Service was a little slow due to the fact it was Valentines day on our last visit, but our server was friendly and helpful. I suggest lowering the lighting along the banquet and closing the blinds earlier in the day.
A) No one wants to look at parked cars.
B) it takes away from the bluesy, chic atmosphere you have done a great job creating. I actually sent someone there to eat and they didn't stay because it was still light out and they said they didn't like looking at the parking lot.
Love the idea of doing meatballs different ways, love the art and lighting. Love that it's dark--I stay away from restaurants that a doctor could operate in. ;)
Happy days!

Yes, we would recommend Mimi Blue. The meatballs were delicious! I wasn't a fan of the linguini, but really liked the potato fries and fried brussel sprouts. Yum!

Our actual server was wonderful, and he made up for the absolutely rude host who asked if we had a reservation, (we did), told us to await his checking us in, and then crossing to a different entrance, seating two other people, and then completely ignoring us. A second host finally addressed us 5 minutes later. Our server was aware of our displeasure, and was extremely attentive and helpful! The food was very good.

Christians service was appalling. Food was good, but again the terrible service (when he would come to the table as he seemed to have better things to do) is what ruined the restaurant for us. Highly disappointed as we were truly looking forward to trying Mimi’s.

Comfort Food At Its Best! We've been to Mimi Blue's in Carmel and now at the Fashion Mall. Both offer terrific food at reasonable prices. We just had our third visit to the Fashion Mall location. The decor is warm and comfortable. Our server was friendly, efficient, attentive, knew the menu well and was able to adjust our choices of meatballs and sauces from the set menu. I mixed the fried chicken meatballs with linguini and Bolognese sauce, rather than mac and cheese. As usual, the dishes came quickly and were consistently delicious. The wine choices were very good. We've used this restaurant as our after movie eatery and haven't regretted our choice.

Neither one of us thought meatballs would be as filling as they were. Crab cake balls appetizer were absolutely delicious. Meatballs were divine. Didn't care for the polenta side. There were other sides I wanted to try but my husband and I don't have the same taste and the sides were fit for at least 2 people so we only ordered the one. Tables at this location are incredibly close together so you have no choice but to be friendly to the table next to you, which we were and met a very nice couple -- given a couple more drinks and more time I'm sure we would have exchanged numbers.

Went for a brunch on New Year’s Eve with my daughter and husbands family. The food was nice as always but I will say our server was outstanding. She went above and beyond to make my daughters time there delightful. She found her regular printer paper to color on when she didn’t have to and also had a balloon blown up for her, because my 3 year old seen the balloons on the ceiling for the holiday and wanted one too. These are simple things but to a toddler- and her mom- they meant so much.

Had an amazing dinner for five with a whole spread of different entrees. Had a few bar special drinks to start off the night which were very creative. All the meatballs were amazing but the stand outs were the chicken balls with the sriracha sauce. Service was attentive and personal. Great dining experience, wonderful food, very reasonable prices.

Food would have been excellent if came out hot instead of barely warm. The garlic cream sauce was delicious and loved the orzo side and the Mac and queso. The service was ok. He didn’t offer dessert which we were actually planning on getting, felt a little rushed. Otherwise enjoyed it.

The appearance of the facility is beautiful and the prices happily do my match the upscale look. Best value for quality and quantity of food in the city.
New offerings of brisket and chicken were exceptional. No one should pass up the Brussels sprouts- a delight.

It was very different than the Mimi Blues downtown. I would recommend the downtown location. I have never had a bad meal there. The food was bland, and the meatballs too dense at this location.

Food was ok. Meatballs were smaller then expected. A side of slightly undercooked vegetables was $7. Waitress brought some of the food for us then the rest had to wait another 5-10 minutes for theirs. So for 2 meatballs and vegetables my bill with tip was $ 17 and I was still hungry. Don't think I will be going back.

It was fantastic! The food was amazing, I had a salad with meatballs and the Mac and cheese shareable. I took my entire team to welcome the newest team member. There were 6 of us and it sat us quite comfortably and it was easy to hear each other to have a nice lunch. Walking from our office made this even better

Service & food were great. Especially love fed the chopped salad. Only complaint was the side linguini comes without sauce and when sauce was requested, it comes in TINY containers. A small complaint--overall, really good food and would highly recommend.
