MIXT now open at 401 Santa Monica Boulevard
By Dolores Quintana
Santa Monica now has a new salad purveyor since MIXT has opened a new location at 401 Santa Monica Boulevard as reported by What Now Los Angeles. The restaurant in Santa Monica is the chain’s third Southern California branch and 17th restaurant for MIXT in total.
MIXT’s website already has a welcoming opening banner that announces this new site. It says, “We’re excited to serve the Santa Monica community scratch-made, seriously craveable, sustainably sourced salads, grain bowls, and sandwiches!” and lists the locations hours as 11:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Leslie and Mark Silverglide founded the company after having a conversation on the road from Lake Tahoe about how few restaurants served high-quality, delicious healthy foods. From there the idea of launching a restaurant that had both things: great food and nurturing business practices.
At MIXT, it’s just not salads, although that is the chain’s specialty. Alongside the chef-created salads, there is a Design Your Own Option for the customer to create their tasty salad. You can also find grain bowls, sandwiches and sides to satiate your hunger.
The newest addition to the menu is the MIXT Crispy sandwich which has crispy organic, local, farm-raised chicken, apple fennel slaw, house pickles, and herb mayo, on a torpedo roll. Co-founder Leslie Silverglide says, “To me, great food is food that tastes delicious, makes you feel good, and gives you the energy and nutrients necessary to be healthy. Our goal at MIXT is to help as many people as possible eat better.”
