Atlanta-based pizza chain Mellow Mushroom makes its west coast debut today, bringing its "'70s basement" vibe to the least '70s-basement-y area of Portland — the Pearl. The menu features pizza by the slice (with topping combos like the "Magical Mystery Tour") pesto with button and portobello mushrooms, mozzarella, spinach, feta, and jalepenos), seven salads, meatball appetizers, pretzels, and 16 different sandwich combinations. (Because this is Portland, tempeh and tofu options are available; both are garnished with sprouts). Also because this is Portland, the MM offers 100 beers — 50 on tap, 50 available by bottle — with several local breweries represented.
Mellow Mushroom opens at 11am, seven days a week, and remains available for munchie needs until 10pm nightly (later on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday).
