This week Shira and I came across Mixt Greens, which is scheduled to open soon right next to our office. This eco-gourmet restaurant concept founded in San Francisco in 2005 will bring four new DC locations to DC in 2010. The first will open on January 26th at 1200 19th Street, NW.
Mixt Greens is a chef driven concept that features tossed-to-order, gourmet salads and handcrafted sandwiches served on organic, artisanal breads along with organic, house-made iced teas and lemonades. Each menu item is prepared by culinary-trained chefs under the leadership of Founder and Executive Chef Andrew Swallow.
The company is a leader in sustainable food sourcing, energy efficiency, composting, resource conservation, alternative energy and education. Mixt Greens will feature a modern, urban design incorporating earth-friendly materials and each location will include a new edible living wall of seasonally rotating herbs and vegetables.
In addition to the restaurant at 1200 19th Street, three venues will open between February and April, 2010 at 1311 F Street, NW, 1700 K Street, NW and 927 15th Street, NW.
