On Friday we talked about Boston’s Upper Crust Pizzeria which will be opening a DC location downtown at 1747 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW. At the time a reader asked if Mellow Mushroom Pizza was still coming to Adams Morgan in DC. I hadn’t heard of Mellow Mushroom but their Web site says:
“Mellow Mushroom opened in 1974 when three college students founded a business that reflected their eccentric philosophies. They saw pizza baking as an art form, and wanted to bring joy to others by exercising their art. The first store was created out of an old liquor store on Spring Street near Georgia Tech. To accommodate the long lines and gaining popularity, more Mellow Mushrooms sprung up around Atlanta.”
And indeed when you go to their future franchises page (screen shot above) you see Washington DC (with a photo of 18th St, NW in Adams Morgan) opening in May ’11.
Think they’ll be able to break the jumbo slice monopoly in Adams Morgan?
Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
