About Shayne Johnson | Owner and Chef
“My family’s always owned restaurants so I grew up knowing that I loved to cook and surrounded by seasoned industry professionals that helped me develop my craft. I completed an immersive three year apprenticeship program in the San Francisco Bay Area while working at exclusive country clubs throughout. I loved California, so I decided to work along the Sonoma Coast in higher end resorts for about seven years before moving to Las Vegas, where I was a chef for the next decade. I wanted to expand my culinary knowledge, and so I went to Thailand to study Thai cuisine. That’s actually where I met my wife, Mix. After spending a few years in Thailand, we returned to the United States together and decided to settle in upstate New York so as to be closer to family. MIX is our first restaurant and has been a lifelong dream that we want to share with the people of Ithaca. We strive to create a new, multidimensional dining experience… it’s all about the people.”
