Mellow Mushroom

I'm vaguely excited about the Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers going in east of Polaris (scheduled to open in January 2009). I tried this place in South Carolina. They make pizza with any and all kinds of toppings. They have a large number of vegetarian items on the menu, including multiple sandwiches. The place in Hilton Head featured a faux hippie vibe that was evident in the decor and the menu. The closest comparison I can make to a pizzeria in Ohio and the Mellow Mushroom is Avalanche Pizza in Athens and Lancaster. I do enjoy pizza and sandwiches, so Mellow Mushroom should give me another place to get fat.

Been there three times already.
the decor is definately slanted to the your average hippie, from a mural featuring jerry garcia playing poker with dogs, to Jim Morrison greeting you as you enter the bathrooms.

aside from the decor, the pizza is awesome. they use a "sweetwater" crust that is great for pizza, as well as hot pretzels (dip them in esperanza sauce). i recommend the "Mighty Meaty" for meat lovers. but the "Funky Chicken" is very good too.

quote from the owner on SNPonline.com:

"We've actually got a very nice menu for vegetarians," Zachrich said. "We've got tofu, tempeh, salads, stuffed portabello mushroom caps."

I'm going to have to get in there with a camera. I also forgot to mention that they offer a ton of delicious beer options, too.
