5 South Water Street Wilmington, NC (910) 399-4501 www.mixtowilmington.com Located in historic downtown Wilmington, in the oldest building housing an operational business, Mixto is what the name implies – a mix of traditional great food from Latin American countries married with contemporary techniques and the freshest local products available. Trinity Hunt has recently joined the culinary team at Mixto as Executive Chef. He has spent his entire life travelling between Baltimore, Maryland, Raleigh, and his family farm in Robeson County and developed a sincere appreciation of the natural bounty that the Carolina Coast has to offer. Trinity was in the first graduating class of Johnson and Wales Culinary School when it relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina. Trinity was previously the Executive Chef at Deluxe. He works closely with local farmers to incorporate the best and freshest local ingredients into daily specials and is looking forward to putting his unique artistic twist onto the face of Mixto. It is not only the food that is straight from the farm at Mixto, we also have a wide range of delicious cocktails concocted from fresh local produce – Mojitos, Sangria, Margaritas, and Specialty Martinis with a Latin twist! Daily Specials, Free Salsa Lessons, and Live Latin Music round out the Mixto experience. Pura Vida!
