CityCenter of CityNorth Welcomes Mellow Mushroom to High Street

Eclectic Restaurant Provides Venue for Local Musicians and Artists in Addition to Mouthwatering Pizza and an Extensive Beer Selection

Phoenix, AZ, December 08, 2011 --( RED Development, is pleased to announce the addition of Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers to The Restaurant and Bar Collection on High Street. As the newest dining destination for CityCenter of CityNorth, Mellow Mushroom will be much more than pizza and beer. It will provide an experience filled with colorful art, eclectic music and an extensive menu with food that comforts the soul.

“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to build on the existing foundation of dining and entertainment success the Desert Ridge area has experienced,” said Robyn Young, vice president, marketing and communications for RED Development. “Mellow Mushroom is a unique pizza concept that will cater well to both residents and visitors to the area.”

Mellow Mushroom will occupy approximately 6,800 square feet next to Sunglass Hut on High Street. Each Mellow Mushroom is locally owned and operated, and while the quality of pizza and expansive selection of beer is consistent from location to location, each has its own vibe and eccentric interior design. Accordingly, the Mellow Mushroom on High Street’s decor will be unlike any other location, but create a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere for local pizza and beer aficionados.

Mellow Mushroom’s creativity extends beyond the décor to its unconventional menu. In addition to franchise favorites like the Philosopher’s Pie, Magical Mystery Tour and Kosmic Karma pizzas, Mellow Mushroom on High Street will deliver its own take on an extensive selection of appetizers, salads, pizzas, calzones and hoagies. The result promises to maintain the Mellow Mushroom tradition of delicious and unique food, creatively customized for each location’s community.
