Mellow Mushroom opens in Suwanee

SUWANEE -- Mellow Mushroom, a pizza shop based in Atlanta, recently opened in Suwanee's Town Center shopping center.

Jill Johnson, who grew up in Gwinnett County and owns and operates a Mellow Mushroom in Alpharetta, said she decided to open the restaurant in Suwanee because she believes the family-oriented town is the perfect place for a fun and funky pizza bakery.

The Mellow Mushroom location in Suwanee features a heated outdoor patio, large menu offering an assortment of pizzas, salads, hoagies and calzones with many vegetarian options and true "meat-eater" bill of fare, and a full bar that boasts 14 beers on tap and more than 30 others in bottles.

The restaurant seats 110 to 115 people. It will host programs and events including a beer club and live music.
