Mixt, a California export known for its grain bowls and salads, is the latest addition to Dallas’s rapidly-growing collection of fast-casual, health-focused restaurants.

The eatery is set to make its debut at 2355 Olive Street, Suite 140 in the coming weeks, bringing a bountiful array of veggies and proteins that can be assembled into plates, bowls, and salads. It’s a San Francisco-based chain with more than a dozen locations across California, according to a press release, and brings upwards of 70 different vegetables, grains, proteins, dressings, and toppings to create the perfect salad or bowl.

For folks who suffer from severe indecisiveness and can’t handle putting together a solid mix of ingredients from such an extensive list, the restaurant has an equally lengthy list of its proven favorite combinations on the menu, many of which are vegan or vegetarian. There are, of course, Caesar and Cobb salads on the menu, and grain bowls packed with quinoa, baby kale, and fresh herbs. Plates like braised Tuscan chicken or roasted salmon served with sauces and sides (grilled broccoli and parmesan cauliflower mash, among others) are also on offer.

Mixt is just the latest in a number of health-obsessed chains to land in Dallas over the past few years, like Flower Child, Bellagreen, the Original ChopShop, True Food Kitchen, and newcomer SkinnyFats. Then there’s also the locally-grown spots that cater to salad and bowl fanatics, including Snappy Salads, Malibu Poke, and Unleavened Fresh Kitchen.

Mixt is set to join this increasingly crowded landscape of healthy eateries in May. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
