Now Open! Mellow Mushroom in Chesterfield Offers Pizza, Brews, and Blues

St. Louis, MO (December 30, 2022) – Pizza lovers have a new choice with the opening of a new Mellow Mushroom restaurant in Chesterfield. The latest addition to the Mellow Mushroom family is located at 15525 Olive Blvd, Chesterfield, MO 63017. The brand’s stone-baked pizzas, great local brews and hand crafted cocktails, along with freshly made salads and a wide assortment of munchies, are now available for dine-in guests as well as online ordering.

St. Louis is famous as the “Gateway to the West,” and the operators, Michael Vienhage and John Burke, want to make their restaurant — their second location in St. Louis — the local gateway to great food and drink. Each Mellow Mushroom is unique in its design and décor and the Chesterfield location reflects a modern take on a mid-century design style.

The cornerstone of the Mellow Mushroom menu is stone-baked pizza featuring a crust made from five simple ingredients, including water from Appalachian mountain springs. Other menu highlights are freshly made salads, munchies, burgers, handcrafted cocktails, and a wide selection of beers, many of them local.

Highlights of the Mellow Mushroom Chesterfield location design include:

  • A giant “LOVE” art installation at the entrance to the restaurant
  • The waiting area is anchored by an art installation featuring a colorful mushroom painting surrounded by butterflies fabricated from vinyl  records 
  • Oversized stylized mushroom columns fill the dining area

The store wouldn’t be complete without reference to the music from the area, specifically the blues. The restaurant features a unique table designed as an oversized vinyl record that honors St. Louis native and legendary musician Miles Davis.

While many Mellow Mellow locations around the country have separate event rooms, this is the first branded as “Club Mellow.” This private dining room seats 34 guests.

By the Numbers

  • Interior space: 6,279 square feet / 165 guests
  • Patio space: 441 square feet / 52 guests 
  • Club Mellow Private Dining Room: Seats 34
  • Beer taps: 24
  • Employees: 90

“We are excited by the decision of Michael Vienhage and John Burke to expand the Mellow Mushroom family and look forward to supporting their Chesterfield location,” said Mike Foster, Chief Operating Officer at Mellow Mushroom. 

“We enjoy being a part of this community and the restaurant emanates inspiration and warmth that is a great representation of the area and patrons,” said franchisee owners, Michael Vienhage and John Burke.
