Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers will open in the Carytown area of Richmond, Va., on May 20. The newest unit is owned by Scott Douglas.
"Living in Richmond and being a part of the wonderful community, I knew that Carytown was the perfect fit for Mellow. Carytown and Mellow both parallel in that they are the perfect combination of history, art and uniqueness," Douglas said.
The menu features a variety of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers. Options for vegetarians, vegans, and kids are available, along with gluten-free options.
This unit features a mural designed by local artist Michael Broth, depicting different periods of time. It also embraces the history of the building's original Plan 9 Music space, with musical artifacts throughout the restaurant.
Also, local artist El Kamino designed the façade with a display of different time keeping devices, such as clocks and sundials.
