Creamy shrimp scampi linguine; a fresh, flavorful chicken tender salad; crunchy and colorful nacho appetizers. These are all some of the delicious food options that can be found on the menu of the new and trendy restaurant, the Mixx.
Located on Lancaster Ave., the Mixx is the latest bar and restaurant to hit the Villanova area. Not only does the contemporary style give off a vogue-like vibe, but the service and cuisine surpasses any expectations that people may hold.
Set up like a modern-day Hibachi-meets-high end New York bar, the Mixx’s serene yet virtually pleasing atmosphere is quite impressive for those who are used to a fast-paced life outside of the Radnor area.
There are virtually two sections that make up the Mixx. The main dining area has three sections. There is a Hibachi-like table right as you walk in, where large parties are able to sit and engage in conversation without being positioned awkwardly.
Surrounding the large table are smaller, avant-garde white tables that seat up to four people. Within the dining area are a couple of smaller, open rooms with tables for those looking for a more personal dining experience. Chic pictures and dim lighting make this part of Mixx feel debonair and elegant, while floor-to-ceiling windows and antique chandeliers make it more spacious and refined.
The highlight of the Mixx is the grandiose, urban-style bar. Complete with gorgeous cream bar stools and comfortable lounge-inspired dining seats, there is plenty of visually pleasing accessories to satisfy the eye. Brick walls covered with long mirrors and beer barrel displays along the walls make the Mixx stand apart from any other local bar in town.
To top it off, there are a small set of stairs within the bar area that lead to another level set aside for DJs. Although this area has not been occupied previously, the hopes of employers at the Mixx is to provide musical entertainment for their customers.
The array of food options on the menu is impressive. Everything from tempura calamari to filet steaks are served at reasonable prices, with no items exceeding $18.
