Writing for Style Weekly, Matthew Freeman has some good words for Mint:
Mint takes the location of the old Davis and Main in the Fan, replacing its more upscale interior with simpler, more stripped-down and casual décor. Televisions and a prominent bar set the mood, while the brightly colored walls, mirror over the bar, and large windows create a well-lighted space that invites lively and upbeat energy. Overall, it feels more welcoming to the Main Street bar crowd than the Julep’s fine dining set.
The menu is designed to appeal to a diverse audience, however, with choices ranging from inexpensive snacks to pricier entrees. A commitment to local foods is proudly proclaimed through a list of farms that supply the restaurant, announcing a welcome marriage of local food culture with local food.
