Restaurateur Spencer Rothschild made a last-minute decision to change the name of his Barrio redo from Barrio Plates to Mix. Not only does the menu “mix different flavors and cuisines,” as Rothschild explained, the restaurant is intended as a place where you can “pop in for a light bite, or bring a group of six and taste half the menu.” Barrio’s bright murals are gone, replaced by a warm orange-and-ochre color scheme. And the menu from chef Martell Fonville (A Voce, al di là) is pretty much what we told you about the other day: contemporary American with a few forays into Latin or Asian territory. Check it all out in our slideshow.
MIX, 210 Seventh Ave., at 3rd St.; 718-965-4000
