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

Always love having brunch at Mimi! The eggs gerry is delicious-- my only critique is that there was a bit too much hollandaise sauce and my eggs were not poached soft. But otherwise, everything was amazing! It was the perfect cozy brunch :)

This was the first time the wife and I had been to Mimi Blue. We had a very nice ti.e there. Great food, great service and great ambience. I'm sure we will be back and will definitely recommend it to friends.

Waiter was irritable and annoyed and it made us uncomfortable. Could hear a lot of drama/inappropriate convos since we were seated next to the register/computer.
Meatballs were great the rest of our food was average.

Went away for the weekend and enjoyed our first time at Mimi’s. Both the hostess and the waiter were very informative and provided great suggestions. We were seated right away and the food was delicious!

Delicious food. Big portions and plenty to eat.
The server was very busy but they were very clear and she apologized for the delays. She was also very helpful to help me pick what to get as my first visit.
She also told me how much food I'd get if I got all the things I wanted to try. I still went ahead and got 4 balls, 2 sides (plenty and plenty of food) but I did not mind the togo for leftover lunch!

I don’t understand how this place wasn’t busier when we went. Everything was so good and everyone was so friendly! We loved the ambiance too.

Meatballs were good. Sides of Mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts were not very good. Mac and cheese was dry with very little sauce. Brussel sprouts had no seasoning. Service was slow.
We've been to Mimi Blues many times and have taken guests because it was always good. After last night's meal we both said that, if this were our first visit, we would not return. I'm sorry to say that our dining experience was disappointing.

Great service and the food is high quality. Options for meat lovers vegetarians and vegans, too. Seems a bit strange eating in a restaurant in terms of how places respond to the Wuhan pandemic but overall a great experience in terms of dining

This was our first visit to Mimi Blue's, and the entire experience was wonderful. We sat outside, so I rated the sound level as moderate, but it was exactly as one should expect. The food was wonderful. The service was top notch. I can't think of a single area for improvement!

We will definitely be visiting again!

One of my favorite places. As a vegan, I love their Wonderballs, which are made with Impossible Burger meat. It was a beautiful night -- perfect for their outdoor seating.

As far as the food, the Brussel Sprouts are always wonderful. I also had their Impossible Burger Sandwich with vegan cheese for the first time. I appreciated having another option but it didn't wow me in the same way that some of their options have.

First time visiting this restaurant and discovered it through Devour Indy and we loved it. We were able to sample different meatballs and all were excellent. And the best banana mousse ever!

Enjoyed a nice lunch on the front patio which is a nice alternative to indoor seating during COVID. The meatballs were wonderful and just the right amount of spicy. I wish they had a lunch menu though...

Happy to return to dining at Mimi Blue. Easy table reservation process. My table of 3 were able to find outdoors - spacing of tables was good. Staff was attentive and all wore masks. Food was excellent and consistent, as always. Veggie meatball with spicy cilantro is my favorite.
