Chef Jose Adorno fuses the vibe of Downtown DC with the eclectic scene of Downtown Silver Spring at MIX Bar and Grille!

At the corner of Thayer Street and Georgia Avenue, you cannot miss this spot, with its bright lights, 45-foot bar and 9 flat screens. Adorno envisions MIX as a true venue, not just a restaurant. They offer happy hour and dinner to private events and even brunch with live entertainment.

The beauty of MIX is that there is something for everyone and for every occasion. If you’re that Downtown Silver Spring commuter that wants a great lunch or a place to get together with coworkers and friends after work, I suggest starting off signature spirit – The MIX. It’s a great blend of Stoli Vanil and Razberi, Malibu, Peach Schapps, Blue Curacao, sour mix, and Sprite. It truly is a mix in every sense of the word and will not disappoint. While the drinks are pouring, I suggest ordering each item on their mezze for the group. The portions are generous and the presentation wins with the flavor. My absolute favorite is Shrimp Taquitos.

Chef Adorno keeps the menu fun with a beautiful assortment of entrees for the Silver Spring local who may want to go out for a nice dinner or a date. The Whole Grilled bronzino is fresh and flavorful and goes great with their Crispy Brussel Sprouts.

Adorno makes their desserts from scratch. He provides the simple choice of apple pie with ginger ice cream, which is delightful. My absolute favorite dessert is the Pumpkin Pie with Blueberry ice cream and Cinnamon Chantilly. This is the kind of dessert you will travel far and wide for! The contrast in taste pair so well together, you will wonder why you didn’t think of it! This is a dessert that is impossible to share!

The daily specials are some of the best in the area offering a little something for everyone. If vino is your flair, come Tuesdays for half off bottles of wine. Wednesdays are for the burger lovers who need that extra push through the week. Adorno sets you up nicely with $8 Cheddar Burgers with their special MIX fries. Thirsty Thursday is my favorite with happy hour prices all day long. And there’s nothing like ending the work with, on Friday, with their cheese fries specials and an ice cold beer on tap.

Try it out. It will become a regular in your restaurant rotation!
