Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers is now open in Wellington, located at 10600 W. Forest Hill Blvd., serving up handcrafted, gourmet pizzas and craft beers in a unique, equestrian-themed setting.
Owners Sean and Kathy Russell felt a connection with Wellington and wanted to bring Mellow Mushroom to the community.
“We have always wanted a location in the Wellington area, and we feel the people of Wellington will really enjoy not only the food, but also the atmosphere,” Kathy explained.
Mellow Mushroom’s menu showcases natural flavors and the freshest of ingredients in a creative menu, featuring an assortment of pizzas, hoagies, salads, calzones and appetizers, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Gluten-free crusts and a kids menu are also available.
Mellow Mushroom Wellington is an upscale, art-filled equestrian experience. Featuring an impressionistic polo mural, an abstracted tree canopy over a custom feature table and a vibrant, twinkling bottle wall in the bar, the store’s imaginative décor offer guests a luxurious and entertaining environment.
Also on display are life-sized horses made completely from mechanical gears. Reclaimed and vintage light fixtures and other materials lend warmth and color to the space, and the hurdle jumping-inspired booths are a fun reference to one of Wellington’s favorite pastimes.
Mellow Mushroom’s mission is to provide delicious food in a fun and creative environment. The layout is ideal for entertainment. There are several TVs for local and national professional sports. If desired, the restaurant provides a semi-private dining area, available for parties or meetings. Depending on the setup of the room, the space can accommodate up to 40.
The full-service bar features a wide array of craft beers, an extensive wine list and fresh handcrafted cocktails.
