The rule of Adams Morgan pizza has always been quantity over quality, but rules are made to be broken! Also: chairs, if someone who eats a lot of Adams Morgan pizza is sitting in them. Finally bringing quality pizza to AdMo, Mellow Mushroom.
The first District outpost of a mostly Southern chain started in 1974, "eccentric" Mushroom's got a circus-y vibe with murals of lion tamers, elephants, and trapeze artists amidst exposed brick, reclaimed tin, and plywood crates; plus there's a fortune-telling machine with a step-on scale that's got a capacity of 300lbs, so unfortunately, Chris Christie's political future will still be subject to wild speculation. Specialty pies run from the bacon/onion Red Skin Potato drizzled with sour cream & spicy ranch, to an obligatory, highly carnivorous joint (pepperoni/ sausage/ ground beef/ ham) called the Mighty Meat, to the grilled steak/ portobellos/ artichoke hearts/ olives Philosopher's Pie, which weirdly, you Kant get with Bacon. If you're the sole person on 18th Street who needs another beer, there're 20 drafts including DC Brau, an 8.7% ABV red ale from Oskar Blues called G'Knight Imperial, and Blue Point's Toasted Lager, which they claim is "clean, balanced", also a much more honest slogan for Fox News -- say what you want about Steve Doocy, dude clearly showers!
And if you're still digesting last night's Red Skin Potato pizza, there're hoagies like a Mushroom Club (grilled 'shrooms/ bacon), or one with peppers and sausage links, or what people who eat too much Jumbo Slice call "fingers", and use to point at "structural problems" on flattened chairs.
