I am not a foodie but there are two things my upbringing have made me expert in – pizza and bagels. We covered the great pizza news yesterday, and apparently God is smiling on me because I got some great bagel (and more) news today. After some serious serious anticipation the folks at Timber Pizza are opening Call Your Mother in the the former Alfie’s space next week! To start they’ll be open 7am-2pm Weekdays and 8am-3pm on weekends. In a few weeks they’ll also be launching a super club in the evenings so stay tuned for that. Also stay tuned for an exact opening date next week and the full menu. In the meantime, I got a sneak peek and a sneak taste from Andrew and partner/head chef Daniela Moreira:

Oh and there will be Babka!! And of course a black and white cookie.  Ed. Note: I’m normally not a black and white cookie guy but this one is much lighter and tastier than the ones from my youth.  Can’t wait to taste some sandwiches too.

Check out some sneak peeks of the inside: (more…)
