Italian like it used to be

Great and party place to go at night. The piano player was a real show man, and the food, just fantastic. Once my husband has some dietary restrictions, the staff was very kind and prompt to adapt whatever was necessary from the menu to our needs. Fantastic atmosphere and value.

After a late night working a fundraiser we went out for a bite to eat, and came across Mimi's and we're glad we did. It was a pianobar, but the music wasn't loud enough to drown a conversation or ruin a great meal. We at and drank all under the caring eye of the hostest. We had such a great... More

We found this restaurant during a 2 night stay at the doubletree metropolitan hotel. All I can say is it's just how I imagined and Italian restaurant in New York would be. Fast service with a good choice of dishes. We knew we were in for a good meal when the waitress was greeting people who had dined there before.... More

Situated on the busy 2nd Avenue this is a prime example of an excellent local restaurant. Very much an Italian restaurant the menu will not contain many surprises. The food is well cooked and well served by friendly efficient staff. Prices are reasonable for New York. In the evenings there is a Pianist playing. Just the sort of restaurant you... More

Veal for me and lasagne for her. Delicious!!!! Nice house wine too, attentive service and a knowledgeable maitre d / manager added... More

THis is the local Pizza and Sausage hero place. It has been around forever , changing hands aft leaf 5 times in the 18 years that have been here. We go occasionally and it is forever mobbed with doormen, kids after school, before school, commuters on the way home and families interested in a less expensive meal. Service is okay... More

Mimi's has a neighborhood feel to it. Good food and many choices, One special feature is the piano bar. Often on a Monday night, you'll be entertained by someone appearing in a Broadway show. That's New York for you.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
