Pizza restaurant Mellow Mushroom withers away in Herndon

A Metro train-inspired restaurant in the Town of Herndon has officially gone off the rails.

Mellow Mushroom, a restaurant that serves handcrafted pizzas and wings, has permanently closed its Herndon location at 1030 Elden Street, according to signage posted at the restaurant’s door.

Although the company did not respond to a request for comment from FFXnow, signage at the door encourages customers to “keep on shroomin’” by visiting a nearby location.

“Thank you for your support, and we look forward to serving you at another Mellow Mushroom location soon,” the sign reads.

Mellow Mushroom customers can still get their fix at a location in Chantilly, along with others throughout the country. Virginia has locations in Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Henrico, Richmond, Midlothian, Williamsburg, Newport News, Lynchburg, Virginia Beach, and Roanoke.

The Town of Vienna is slated to get a franchise as part of the upcoming 444 Maple Avenue development, though vertical construction on the project hasn’t begun.

There’s no official word yet on what will replace the business.
