Mellow Mushroom, 5,869 square feet, is an eclectic, family-friendly restaurant that serves up fresh, stone-baked pizzas to order, hoagies, munchies and a variety of craft beers. This is the first location in Rockville, joining two other locations in the D.C. metro area. The Rockville location will be customized with artwork, décor and design styles to inspire the neighborhood, while reflecting the original mission of Mellow Mushroom: to serve a deliciously unparalleled pizza and cold craft beer in an unforgettable environment. It will be located on the Plaza. Expected to open in Spring 2016.
