Mixt, the California-based fast-casual restaurant known for serving farm-fresh salads, is continuing its neighborhood expansion with a new location opening on June 1 in San Francisco’s Mission district at 901 Valencia Street (at the corner of 20th Street).

The Mission location will offer an expanded dinner menu, veggie-inspired cocktails, and a large dining space that houses a cozy ‘salad lounge.’ “We’re beyond excited to bring Mixt’s delicious, sustainable, and seasonal food to the Mission,” says Mixt CEO, Leslie Silverglide. “We are honored to provide a large, lively dining spot in the Mission where the community can enjoy a fresh, healthy lunch, a casual date, or a nourishing family dinner.”

The Mission location will feature an expanded menu beyond salads and grain bowls with the option of Mixt Market Plates. These hearty, seasonal combinations created by Mixt Executive Chef, Jeffrey Amber, feature herb-roasted and grilled sustainable meats paired with savory signature sauces and a choice of warm side dishes that change with the seasons like grilled fresh asparagus with everything bagel spice and grilled Brentwood corn succotash.

In keeping with its mission to put a healthy twist on tradition, the newest Mixt location will feature an over-the-top re-imagining of a cocktail lounge for the health-conscious generation. This dining space within the restaurant will have vegan leather lounge seating and vegetable-themed decor.

The salad lounge will offer a “Mixt drinks” menu with better-for-you cocktails (think Kale Mimosas and Beerbucha). But if veggie-infused cocktails aren’t at the top of your list, diners can also order a local beer, glass of wine, or kombucha on tap to enjoy with a salad or market plate. Market Plates and the expanded drink menu are only offered at Mixt’s newest locations in San Francisco (Mission, Yerba Buena Lane, and Cow Hollow).
