Since Mixt Greens is one of the few local restaurants to be designated a Certified Bay Area Green Business, it would make sense that the third branch of the FiDi lunch hotspot follow the greener than thou pattern set by the first two locations. The menu—and for the most part, the overall look—is pretty similar to the others, but the space is bigger and its environmental amenities are aplenty. Like the food itself, the design actually resists sacrificing style for substance. Just a few of the green features: low VOC-paint throughout, recycled plastic chairs/tabletops, special concrete flooring, and all wood finishing is FSC-certified. Plus, rumor has it that this location also has something anyone can appreciate: sandwiches.
