My husband and I kind of stumbled across Mellow Mushroom when we were visiting Asheville. Right away we were taken in by the eclectic mix of pictures and paintings around the inside of the restaurant. They also have a nice outside patio that we couldn't take advantage of because of the rain. The pizza was good with an amazing crust that tasted so fresh! I was amused by the guy in back flipping and tossing the dough. I couldn't believe the pizza was being made right in front of my eyes! Very entertaining. We also had an amazing mushroom soup and an artichoke and spinach dip unlike any other I've tasted! My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality and boldness of the food! And, to top it all off, our waiter, JC, was super attentive and talked to us a great deal about the popular Asheville spots and the town of Asheville in general. If you're ever in Asheville, make sure you stop by the Mellow Mushroom and be sure to ask for JC!
