CORALVILLE — Psychedelic pizzeria Mellow Mushroom is coming to Coral Ridge Mall.

Mellow Mushroom will open in the former Bennigan’s space in February 2015. The franchise features pizza, calzones, hoagies and salads as well as a variety of craft beers.

Monica Nadeau, the mall’s general manager, said finding a sit-down family restaurant to replace Bennigan’s was a priority.

“Mellow Mushroom will be a great addition to our center and offer guests a good meal in a great environment” Nadeau said in a news release.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers was founded in 1974 in Atlanta, Ga. Each Mellow is locally owned and operated with a “unique feel focused around customer service and high quality food.”
