The cult-favorite pizza joint, Mellow Mushroom, is officially open in Williamsburg at Merchants Square!

The new location of the restaurant franchise, 110 S Henry Street to be exact, held their grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Oct. 8.

It’s only the second one in the region, with the first located in Newport News on Jefferson Avenue.

Mellow Mushroom was founded in Atlanta, which is where they are still based today. They specialize in fresh,  stone-baked pizzas in an eclectic, seventies-themed atmosphere, according to their website.

In addition to great pizza, you can enjoy a special brew made in collaboration with The Virginia Beer Company to celebrate their grand opening! It’s called Palmer’s Porter: a 6.0 percent ABV English-style Porter described as “smooth and rich with sticky notes of Molasses to round out flavors of semi-sweet chocolate.”
