Fans of the Atlanta-based chain Mellow Mushroom need wait no longer as the pizzeria is now officially open in Adams Morgan. As has been previously noted, the three-level space has been fully renovated along a carnivalesque theme — with murals painted on brick walls, boldly colored walls and many circus-friendly accoutrements. The menu is pizza-focused ranging from plain ol' cheese to a Magical Mystery Tour pizza that has a pesto base and crust, plus mushrooms, mozzarella, spinach, feta and jalapenos. There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free pizza options, as well as salads, calzones, hoagies, appetizers and a
long list of brews both on tap and bottled.
The restaurant's two main levels are indoor dining as usual, but a press release notes that you'll be able to enjoy "an enclosed penthouse area with an open rooftop deck" on the third level. Each floor has its own full bar, too, meaning this should fit right in on bar-tacular 18th Street. Franchise owner Pooja Mehta tells Eater that they're aiming for an 11 a.m. opening, so that's pretty much right now.
