Mimi's in Irvington anyone?

Has anyone been to the restaurant that moved into the former Red Hat location? I think it's called Mimi's.

Sorry, I'm spazzing out. I didn't mean to post this three times.

    I'm pretty sure it's called Mina's and there are already posts about it here.

      It's very good. Care is taken with the food and they have a great wine list, by the glass is especially good. We just had the cheese and meat plate and an app; it was more than enough. You'll enjoy it, if you can get in!

          I went to Mina's about a month ago, and loved it! It's very cute inside, I liked the wine by the glass (or cortino) as well! Ans, I had a delicious fish special--it was very lemony, our server was great, would definitely go back soon.

        I think you do mean "Mina's". It is excellent and in the previous location of The Red Hat Bistro, which moved down to the river in a really great location. The good at Mina's, and I have eaten there several times, has always been great. Really great service, fresh, excellently prepared food. The location is also nice. Great ambiance.

          Chrissie and I ate there a while back and found it to be very good. The food, service, and atmosphere were all spot on. We're not pasta people, but we were blown away by the trecce with pepper, onion, bacon, and egg we split for an appetizer.

          Last time we were there they still had the winter menu. Are there any new dishes that must be tried?

          I'm afraid this thread will result in a lot of frustrated googling. The actual name is Mima. http://www.mimarestaurant.com/about.html
