Mixt Greens, an eco-gourmet restaurant concept founded in San Francisco in 2005, announced four new Washington, D.C., locations. The first will open on January 26 at 1200 19th Street, NW.

Mixt Greens’ contemporary interior will showcase the company’s green initiatives through design concepts and building materials. William McDonough + Partners, a design firm from Charlottesville, Virginia, is the architect for the new Mixt Green locations in D.C.

Mixt Greens will also 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. The wall highlights indoor urban agriculture, a low-energy, high-yield farming technique, showcasing that sustainable, fertilizer/pesticide-free, healthy food can be grown indoors in urban environments. The edible, living wall also highlights the initiatives that Mixt Greens continues to spearhead throughout its operations and business practices.

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. Each location will be open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and prices will range from $7.95 to $11.95 for salads and $8.95 for sandwiches, which are served with a side salad of greens.
