From a press release:
“Call Your Mother, Washington D.C.’s nationally renowned, locally grown “Jew-ish” deli, opens its first mobile kitchen, the Call Your Mother Trolley, Tuesday, July 14.
Also known as Honey, the original name of the antique streetcar, Call Your Mother’s bagel trolley is rolling into Bethesda, Maryland and parking next to Suburban Hospital at 8804 Old Georgetown Road. With social distancing in mind, guests can order bulk bagels and their favorite signature sandwiches ahead here or at the trolley. The full Call Your Mother menu will be available soon.
“It’s one of the old trollies that used to tour the city, but it’s no longer orange and green,” says Andrew Dana, Founder and Co-Owner of Call Your Mother. Instead, the trolley is outfitted in the brand’s emblematic pink and green meant to evoke “Boca-meets-Brooklyn” blending outstanding bagels and bright South Florida vibes. Some of South Florida’s well-known Jewish retirement homes are the inspiration behind the names of Call Your Mother’s quirky woodfire bagel sandwiches.
Honey is double the size of a typical food truck and has been furnished with an air conditioning system providing an exceptionally comfortable workspace. “It was like putting together a challenging but fun puzzle,” says Lindsay DiSalvo, Call Your Mother’s New Store Opening and Development Director. Inside, green LED lights frame a full kitchen including a state-of-the-art TurboChef oven, a sandwich line, and an ordering station.
Honey is open from 8am-2pm daily. And for now, will stay put next to Suburban Hospital (8600 Old Georgetown Rd) but may be seen cruising around the DMV in the coming months.”
