Houston, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2016
The Houston Heights revitalization is breathing fresh air through the communities while paying respect to their roots, which is exactly what Todd Molyneux wanted to reflect when he designed this particular Mellow Mushroom. Inspired by the trolley, electricity and vintage transit maps, the art of Houston Heights Mellow Mushroom honors the area's history while also invoking the bustle of the commute from the suburbs to city life.
Artist Mike “Truth” Johnston created a futuristic color-block mural for the main dining room that represents the surrounding neighborhood, the city of Houston and the state of Texas. Another salute to the town’s history is the life-sized trolley with functioning headlights that guests can dine in. The conductor is a representation of one of the founders of Mellow Mushroom.
To learn more about the interior of the Houston Heights Mellow Mushroom, guests can participate in an online art tour by following the directions on the plaque at the front of the store. The online tour features a description of the artworks and artists who created the masterpieces specifically for this location and connects guests with the artists’ online portfolios.
It’s not just the art that takes visitors back through time but the menu as well. The hip vernacular of the sixties is showcased using terms such as “Magical Mystery Tour” and “Funky Q. Chicken” to describe their amazing menu items.
Not only are there Pizza and Calzones featured on the eclectic menu of Mellow Mushroom but also Hoagies, enlightened Salads and a half pound USDA Black Angus “Carnie” Burger. Patrons can dine Gluten free with pie crusts made from ancient grains. Veg out on the Vegan menu while enjoying delicacies such as the “Thai Dye Pizza” and “Avocado Hoagie”. The little ones can even “Doodle-with-Dude” on their activity filled Kids menu. All items on the Mellow Mushroom’s menu are served with fresh ingredients that arrive at the restaurant daily.
Mellow Mushroom is furnished with a full sized bar supplied with four televisions for those who wish to wind down after a long stroll at the Downtown Houston Aquarium. Guests can feel free to participate in the bar’s music playlist with their interactive app by Mood Media. The patio is also a great place to sip on the local beers from Mellow Mushroom’s bar menu, and, of course, there are a couple of television screens out there as well for those thrilling weekly games.
The food and art are not the only eclectic gems found at Mellow Mushroom. Their fashion line House of Shroom is full of fun threads that are featured by the employees and available for purchase at the restaurant. If online shopping is easier, the full collection can be accessed on their official website http://www.Houseofshroom.com.
