Mellow Mushroom - St. Matts Closed

by JustinHammond » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:17 pm

Looking forward to anything new that takes over the space. Never did get into the pizza at Mellow Mushroom.

Hopefully a nice New American spot with craft beers/cocktails.

I don't like paying $15 for a meh pie. Their beer list was always solid, but the pizza was horrible.

St. Matts needs a nice sit-down "American" place. I have Simply Thai and Havana, but I like something a little more upscale. Bardstown Rd seems to have figured out how to mingle in a few fine dining spots among the bars.

I knew the day i heard it was going into that spot that it was doomed. Now all we need is a motivated investor to reopen Dutch’s and return it to it’s dive bar glory.

They've really been pushing Groupons for Mellow Mushroom recently. A lot of people are going to have Groupons with no place to use them.

The pizza was not to my taste. The crust or sauce seemed sweet - added sugar, I guess. But, I always admired that they saved the donut sign uncovered during remodeling.

Just a friendly reminder that a couple dozen people just lost their jobs with no warning. If you are hiring or know anyone who is, be sure to reach out!

The owners of Diamond Pub & Billiards have purchased the former location of Mellow Mushroom in St. Matthews and plan to open a street-food concept in the space.

The new venture, which will be called Diamond Street Grub & Hops, will make use of the existing 40-tap draft system for a craft beer program, while the food will be all over the place. Expect any and every street-style food one can think of, from classic street tacos to Thai wings, elotes, Philly cheesesteaks, a Chicago-style hot dog called The Wrigley, Bangkok meatballs and more.

There also will be sharable appetizers, a build-your-own macaroni and cheese option, salads and more. The menu will be chef-driven, with fresh, quality ingredients. The plan is to open on or around the last Saturday in June.
