Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will open in Metairie, La., on Jan. 21, at 3131 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Suite 20, in the Forum Shopping Center.

The location will be operated by Christopher Todd Moffatt, Leon L. Grigio Jr. and William T. Maisano.

"Metairie is a fast growing community, and the location off of Veterans Memorial is a fantastic location for Mellow," Moffatt said.

The menu features a variety of handcrafted pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers, as well as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

The new location's design is inspired by the jazz and blues heritage of the Metairie area. It features:

  • An artwork centerpiece with a collage of uniquely formed musical instruments suspended from the ceiling;
  • Original murals of local musicians such as Fats Domino, The Neville Brothers, Dr. John and Tad Benoit are painted on 150-year-old doors; and
  • Pendant lights are used throughout the restaurant constructed from actual musical instruments which have been converted for functional use.

This is the third Mellow Mushroom to open this month. The first was located in San Antonio, Texas, and the second in West Palm Beach, Fla.
