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

Good food. Difficult to make a choice. The wait staff was attentive. It would have been nice to have a glass of scotch but the beer was good and cold.

Food was really good. We tried 5 different types of the meat balls and all where good, seasoning was consistent all the way through, and moist. Definitely will be going back to try more flavors.

Honestly I’ve never had a more perfect dinner experience EVER! Everything was great. From our server to our drinks, from our food to our dessert. Literally and the price wasn’t bad either . 10/10 recommend

Enjoyed celebrating my birthday at Mimi Blue. Meatballs were surprisingly filling and I ended up taking home a couple for lunch the next day. Favorite side by all four of us was the fried brussel sprouts--extremely tasty!

Enjoyed good food and service. Noise level makes it a bit difficult to converse. This was my second visit, however. I would go back. Comfort food served in a different way.

We came for the DevourIndy menu, having both been to MiMi Blue locations before. It was a great experience. I really appreciate that they were willing to swap out the dessert for an extra side for me since I’m sensitive to dairy. Highly recommend the black bean and quinoa ball and the Brussels sprouts! We will be back!

Every type of meatball was very dry and overcooked. We were told of any drink selections other than being given a wine and beer list and poured warm water without ice. I’ve had better meet at a food cart than I had there. We won’t be returning at any point in time.

Went fir birthday dinner for my wife with our daughter before going to see Hamilton. 6:15 reservation on Saturday. We were seated right away (table right next to the door which wasn't great, but they were pretty full). Server took our order pretty quick as we knew what we wanted. 2 orders of 4 meatballs with 2 fried potato sides and 1 linguini side, and one Mimi Plate. It took over 40 minutes for our food to come out though, which meant we rushed thru eating and had to flag someone down to get our check and to-go boxes so we wouldn't be late for the show. Maybe that turn around time is typical, but was not at all what we were expecting.

My wife and I love the food here! It's one of our go to spots for some good comfort food! We have yet to find something on the menu we didn't like. We have brought multiple friends and family members to dinner and they have all loved it as well. We will definitely be back in the future!

Excellent food, great atmosphere and friendly server. Busy evening so it took a while to get food and drinks. Also would like more beer options.

I loved the food up to the point where the waiter cleared our table, taking my mashed potatoes with him which I had maybe eaten only 3 bites of. He didn’t say he was boxing them or if I was finished so it was assumed he was boxing them. I didn’t have them sitting off to the side they were literally right in front of me... so I paid for mashed potatoes that I barely got to eat and I really liked them.

Waitress was not helpful at all with explaining how the menu worked or giving ideas for pairings of meatballs and sauces. She also was not very attentive. Parking was miserable to find. From when i first saw the place to when I walked inside after finding parking was a solid 20-25 minutes.

Mimi Blue is one of the restaurants on Mass Ave we haven't tried so decided to make that our next outing. We were not disappointed. Our waiter was very kind to go over the menu with us and explain the different sauces. We each decided to try four different meatballs with four different sauces. I got the mashed potatoes and my husband got the pasta. The Sriracha Aioli and the Bourbon Bbq were my favorites with the turkey meatball. Neither was too hot our spicy but both were very flavorful. My husbands was the spicy bolognese with the classic Meetball. Both of the sides were very good. It was a fun experience for both of us and we can't wait to take our grandson there who loves meatballs. If I had anything I would change it would be to offer mixed drinks at the bar they only had wine and beer.

Server messed up several meals which I don't understand since you write on your own menu. She didn't explain things well and it was our first time so we were struggling to know what to order.
Food was good and we may try again now that we have a better idea how it works and what things we would like. Wish we could have had dessert because they looked great but we were short on time .
