The new Manor complex at Flagler Village in Fort Lauderdale will soon be home to several establishments, including a Mellow Mushroom.
Alongside Colada Cuban Coffee House & Eatery, the pizza and beer bar franchise restaurant will be among the first tenants in the new mixed-use facility, expected to open in the coming months.
Flagler Village is one of Fort Lauderdale's newest neighborhoods, with several developments currently under construction, a collection of residential and commercial projects. In addition to the mixed-use space, new infrastructure is underway to service the surrounding neighborhood, including a stop for the city's Wave Streetcar project and an All Aboard Florida's train station stop.
Louis and Lina Elosta -- also franchisees of the Middle Eastern-themed chain restaurant Aladdin's Eatery in Boca Raton -- are partners in the new Mellow Mushroom restaurant coming to Fort Lauderdale. As part of their latest venture, they'll serve the traditional Mellow Mushroom menu featuring handcrafted pizza and microbrews with a custom-built space featuring 48 beer taps at an outdoor bar and another 12 taps inside.
Mellow Mushroom Fort Lauderdale will be located at 525 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Visit mellowmushroom.com.
