MIX: Fresh Kitchen closes, new bar mooted

Downtown hotspot didn't last, but may be reinvented. Again.

Despite, or maybe because of, its many reinventions, MIX: Fresh Kitchen (5171 Salter Street, 429-9571) has closed. Manager and co-owner Chris Richards did not return any messages requesting comment, and star chef Ray Bear recently Tweeted that he was selling his share in the business and leaving town. With Bear gone it's hard to imagine his fine-dining resto East, scheduled to open on Blowers, will do so.

Though unconfirmed at this time, The Feed has heard that a deal is in motion to turn MIX into a lounge a la Tribeca or Mosaic, featuring an appie menu and DJs and dancing. More on that when we have more details.
