A newcomer to the neighborhood, this hip, 25-seat French restaurant is already attracting repeat customers for its solid food in a chic, intimate environment. The veal tartare with Parmesan and watercress can win over even those who shy away from raw meat, while the roast chicken with escarole and potato dumplings features the crispiest skin one could hope for. Ile flottante, a rice pudding with rose water and coconut, makes for a good dessert, and both the wine and cocktail lists are worth exploring. Mimi is the kind of place that’s just as appropriate for a fun night out with friends as it is for a romantic date.
