Any update on the proposed Mellow Mushroom coming to the old 18th and Red location?
Looks as though work has started (the ground floor slab has been excavated for utilities) but from the looks of it there is no way a July opening will happen, I’m thinking early september-ish. Im originally from Atlanta and since reading about it on your site I have been salivating. I need bbq chicken pizza and spinach salad with esperanza dressing.”
I spoke with the owners a couple of weeks ago and they say the opening has been a bit delayed because of the difficulties involved in “getting an old rowhouse in the proper structural shape”. While they hoped to be open in July, I’m now told if all goes well they’ll be shooting for a September opening. I’m guessing late Sept. Of course, I’ll be sure to update as they get closer to opening with an exact date.
Mellow Mushroom will be located at 2436 18th St, NW.
